Browser tabs are a wonderful convenience that allow you to browse the Internet without cluttering up your desktop.

Another great, but often overlooked convenience, is being able to bookmark all open tabs at the same time. Maybe you've been researching something on the Internet for hours and have several tabs open, but need to stop for the day. What do you do? Leave your browser up and your computer on until you come back? Bookmark each tab individually? Nah.

Here's how to bookmark all open browser tabs at once:

Chrome
Right-click on a tab and select "Bookmark all tabs" or hit Ctrl+Shift+D.
