I need to change some bad computer habits; such as, often completely closing my browser, I should keep one instance open and just work within tabs. I wish I could set my mouse to shock me when performing a bad habit.

@dennis A matter of efficiency. If efficiency is paramount in your focus, closing the browser should trigger it slightly worse each time until you cannot actually close it until shutdown. Actually I never close the browser(s), this habit happened through the evolution of waiting for a browser to start on a much slower computer <grr>.

@AskChip
That'd be a clever solution. Yet, I think you underestimate my sadomasochistic tendencies.

@dennis Once my OCD latches onto a more efficient way of doing things, there is no stopping it ;)

@dennis And I thought I was the last holdout on the window side of !

@dennis I think that keeping a browser all the time would count as 'bad habit' for me (i.e. it decreases my focus) - recently I've been on "focus strike" - use only one/single tool I need at given time.
