When I do my show, I pull all the web pages up in advance so they are in order. That can cause major slowdown of not only your internet connection but also the computer.
With a little chrome extention called “One Tab”, I can press a button and have all tabs taken off and put in a list to be opened when I want. I can even pre-set a list a couple days in advance, then just pull it up when I’m ready to podcast.
I have my email, Facebook, Google+, Hootsuite and YouTube tabs set in a locked group so I just have to press one link to open it all.
OneTab is available for Chrome and Firefox and is free to use.
