Do you take off all strings or 1 at a time

I have always changed 1 string at a time because I was told that you NEED to keep tension on the neck at all times. Otherwise the neck will take a while to readjust to the tension and you will have tuning problems during that time. I have always believed this because it seems logical. After watching pros change out strings though, it seems they take all strings off. It would be an advantage when cleaning the guitar for sure. Can anyone tell me why it is OK to take off all strings?

All string come off every time I change 'em. Clean the fret board between every string change with a dry Micro Fiber cloth, and use some kind of Oil if the Fret Board looks too dry (used to be just Lemon Oil, but I've started using Valve Oil lately). There you have it.
