Lack of Interest Should it be easier to go back and forth to my 10 latest threads ?

    Besides having 10-200 browser windows open at one time ... which I do.
    Should there be a way to go to one thread. get the info you need. and then go back to the thread where you want to post the information ?

    Ideas ?

    There is a "Jump to" feature for Forums, but more useful to me would be "Jump back" to
    (1) the previous thread,
    (2) one of the latest 10 threads.

    Yes, I do use the browser BACK thing, but that fails at times for some reason.
    As well, alot of users wouldn't use the browser BACK.

    Anyone like this ?

    It would be like a "thread breadcrumb" ?

    of your last threads.

    could be saved, so that when you come back, you know what you were doing !

    I'd probably call it "Recent Threads", not Latest Threads.

    I have found that the "All Recent Messages" button on the "What's New" listings has helped this somewhat :)

    Would people like a list of their top 10 most visited threads ?

    No ... it isn't threads you have posted in .... it is threads you have visited.
    I mostly wanted this feature because I constantly try to find URLs to answer questions of the Pre-Sales people.
    I flip from XenCarta to Wordpress to BBCode to Xenporta threads.
    I usually have 20 windows open.
    I thought this might help.

    I think having 100 browser windows opened at all times is really extreme and hopefully majority of people wouldn't have that.... I usually just have 1 window. With less than 5 tabs most of the time. Middle mouse clicking on threads to open them in new tab is super easy already.

    Why can't you just use your browser's History feature? :confused:

    I use that too.
    Firefox Awesome Bar is crazy good for that type of stuff. Chrome isn't as good.
    History has weaknesses as well.

    I mostly wondered about this idea for people whom aren't as browser savvy.

    I doubt non-savvy guys would have 100 windows open at the same time xD

    You know the post-it mod actually comes into handy for exactly what your describing when it comes to referencing post :)

    Much better suited for an add-on. I feel it's wasted resources tracking it, displaying it, etc., when the average user won't use it often. I reorganize my tabs so its easy to switch.
