It seems that you're using an outdated browser. Some things may not work as they should (or don't work at all).
We suggest you upgrade newer and better browser like: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Opera

Do you keep open your internet browser (firefox, opera, safari...) when you're playing a videogame or watching a film?
If I am playing on my PSP, then yes, because some games like Shin Megami Tensei: Persona have some Guide Dang It! moments...like when you have to recruit Reiji, the strongest character in the game or navigate the Black Market dungeon twice in order to get to the Harem Queen.
Yup. I have two screens for my main computer and two laptops around it, it's very unlikely I'm not doing several things at the same time. Of course, this means me every so often going "damn I didn't quite catch that" in a movie and going back a couple minutes to see what it was. I also like playing games where I can pause at will, or at least ones that don't need constant perfect attention.

Only if I'm downloading something. Otherwise not a lot of point.
Yep, no point in closing it here. Also in a similar situation to Miaghstir where I can see, and use, more than 1 monitor/computer.
Depends on whether it was open when I started playing/watching. I rarely alt+tab out of the game to close a browser. There was this one time when an ad started shouting while I was playing, though...
Sure, I always keep a browser on. I usually have a huge backlog of tabs, too.

This, basically. But not all the time, just most of it.
Seems i'm one of the few people who rather focus on what they're currently doing
My browser is running all the time, as it doubles as a mail client. Also, I alt-tab a lot during gaming for many various reasons, and when I do, I often check a few things here or there before I go back to the game. Which makes my Steam gameplay stats wildly inaccurate, among other things.
Not always, but still much more often than I would like to.
No.

I like to focus on one thing at a time if possible.

I deliberately put my laptop farther away because I already had enough trouble with focussing on two screens on my PC. I really seem to struggle at multi-tasking like that and 90% of the time I'm only using one of my screens (the other's use is nominal, i.e. media player or IRC, or sometimes a movie).
While playing games, I usually don't have a browser open (I close my browser when I've done everything I wanted to do on the 'net for the time being).
Before watching movies, I don't close my browser if some tabs are some open.
