I too find myself with dozens of tabs open, and often a dozen instances
of the browser, each with a half dozen or more tabs.
Just as an example, I was researching floor monitor speakers for my
church. I had about 8 or more instances of the browser open, each
instance had one specific speaker I was researching. Each time a
reviewer would convince me to look at some OTHER speaker, I would open a
new browser instance for that one.
Each instance then had tabs for Amazon.com for the prices and
evaluations, plus reviews by as many magazines as I could get my hands
on, often with additional tabs for YouTube Videos. So 6-8 different
speakers, each with tabs for prices plus reviews. TONS of tabs in the
end. I didn't check memory usage but from experience it gets pretty high.
When I would be convinced that a specific speaker was unworthy, I would
close down that entire browser instance and all the tabs.
Often times I will bookmark the entire set of tabs, labeling it
appropriately (with speaker name in this case). So I can go back in and
look at all the web sites I have found with just a few clicks.

> You sound like an old lady who only drives her car to church every Sunday. 20MB of RAM...really? I must be a bit more ruthless when it comes to browsers...forty tabs are not unusual. When some of the tabs are continuously active, I have noticed over a few days, memory will slowly dissipate. My current version of FF on Windows 10 is now using over 1.5 GBs, with only 15 tabs open (just checked)....I have seen Chrome eat up almost 2.8 GBs.
> Today's browsers are not just to read your emails and check the weather. That concept is so pre-2010...in computer years that is 60 to 70 years ago. Everything is moving away from the desktop and internet being two separate entities. I think within a few years desktops and the browser interface will be totally integrated to the point where we wouldn't know where one ends and the other begins.. Data and other information will flow from one to the other. We will be able to collaborate with friends and businesses across our desktops...and we will be able to take our desktops anywhere we want go...all that is needed is a keyboard, mouse and monitor...our desktops will be spawned off our smartphones or downloaded off the internet...we have the potential to be everywhere and running tasks anywhere in the world...messaging, transferring data, photos, video conferencing, collaborating documents, animation of scenes in movies, doing engineer designs, programming and development and so on and so on...
