Just to add my 10cents - I think you are asking two separate questions:
1. If I open lots of screens does it use computer resouces?
Yes it does. Acklan
have already covered that bit. If you try to use too many resources your computer will slow down and may not operate correctly but you're unlikely to damage anything.
2. If I have lots of screens open do I have to shut them one by one?
No, not at all. Your Internet browser is for just that, browsing. The page that you opened ten minutes ago is just a copy of the webpage (as it was then) there is no purpose served by returning to it via your 'back' button to close it. Just hit the red button with the X on it and that's the end of the story.
