If you visit a couple of websites regularly throughout the day, and all at once, then you have probably considered improving the process in your browser of choice. The easiest way in my opinion is to use sessions and keep those sites open at all times. Sometimes though, that is not really what you want. Maybe you have a bunch of social networking sites, news or entertainment sites that you want to check quickly and close as quickly to get back to work or whatever you are doing on your computer.
That's where Website Opener for Google Chrome steps in. It enables you to create a list of sites that you can then open all at once with the click of the mouse.
You need to open the options of the program first to configure the add all websites that you want to open when you click the extension button in Chrome's address bar. Here you can add domains easily by entering their urls into the add url form. Each site you add this way is displayed under websites on the right. You can rearrange the order of websites and remove them from the group as well again.
Use the import bookmarks option to add bookmarks to the list of websites that you want to group together. To use the extension after the initial configuration, simply left-click on the icon in the address bar. This opens all websites that you have added to it in the same browser window.
Website Opener is a handy extension for Chrome users who want to open multiple websites at once in the browser every now and then. If you are not running Chrome, or prefer to have access to the same functionality without installing an extension, read on. You can alternatively create a folder on your bookmarks bar or in your bookmarks and add bookmarks of sites to the folder that you want to open simultaneously. To do so later, simply middle-click that folder.
This should work in the majority of browsers. It does definitely in Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer.
