Question about number of outgoing connections

Hi, I am new here (just registered.) I have a question about the number of active connections showing up. I have the free version of Comodo (firewall) and at times, while browsing the internet, I can have only one window open, and over 40 outgoing connections with varying IP addresses show up.
