Top definition
An event that occurs when one continually opens new tabs in a web browser without closing old ones, causing the user to get lost and confused in the sheer number of open websites.

There are two primary elements that cause this:
1. Not closing them JUST IN CASE you will go back to them later, similar to pack rats
2. Laziness
Last night I went to check Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Fark, and all of my webcomics at the same time ... and before I knew it I had a catabstrophe on my hands! I didn't know which tab to click next!
