Browser Tabs Making Us Lazy Readers?

I remember the first time I ever saw a website. It was yahoo.com on Internet Explorer version something. The connection was dial up and it took at least 2 to 5 minutes to load the webpage.

Now I have DSL and Firefox 3. I have iGoogle and its RSS showing ability and have a gajillion tabs with a gajillion stories I could open in new tabs.

Not that I am complaining but I have begun noticing that all these 'interesting' tabs make me want to view them quickly. I don't read the complete articles anymore but chomp and gobble through them. Scanning seems to be a more appropriate word.

I scan.

Specially if the article is not that well written, I just tend to stop reading the whole article altogether and "move on" to other tabs.

Do you still read the whole article?
