So you want to limit the number of open browsers?!?

Whatever for? If you're an ISP, and your clients are on dialups, they
have strictly limited bandwidth anyway. There may be a way to limit
number of open connections from each host, I guess (to, say
12...assuming each browser window opens 4 simultaneous connections), but
I don't know of it.

Monitoring bandwidth and limiting bandwidth is possible and well
documented. But I don't see any gain or legitimate reason for
restricting the number of browsers someone can open. (Do your clients
agree to a heavyhanded term of service like that? I can't imagine that
paying customers would subject themselves to such.)
