Checkout wavebox it's based on Chromium but is super cool. Improves memory management tremendously by "sleeping" tabs that aren't active, also allows multiple google accounts to be logged in at the same time (paid feature). Also, can embed links to popular apps like messenger, whatsapp, etc

Browsers that "sleep tabs" that aren't active have a tendency of making in-browser chat clients stop working for me.

I am doing just fine with Chrome. I get my firefox too much loaded on system even for my current config.
I use FF and I always have at least 6 tabs open. It starts bogging down over time to a point where it stalls, like it has a mem leak. I then close it and open Chrome.
What version of Firefox, and on what platform?

I regularly have 100+ tabs open in Firefox, but I don't have any performance problems. This is on Linux, though.

No problems with (Windows) Firefox here either but like most browsers it can be a bit of memory hog so I imagine it might slow a device if memory gets tight.

Edge, IE 11, and Chrome for testing. Firefox as my default, I like my menu bar.

Sells less data than Google does, and isn't backed by a multinational corporation that likely wants to spy on your every move.

Either way, I recommend Firefox overall. It's not as commercially focused as alternatives, has a decent plugin ecosystem, is by an organisation that seems to care about web standards and happens to use a browser engine that isn't Chromium. Which is arguably important for anyone into web development, since it means Google can't just de facto decide what websites and webapps are capable of without anyone else questioning their decisions.

Trying to control who does what with your data is like trying to hold back the tide. I've given up worrying who knows about my love affair with rubber fetish suits :cool:

Like all the smart crap they sell that knows most of your moves.
