It all depends on your system resources, but yes you will hit the RAM ceiling eventually if you open enough tabs.

I generally have one tab open set at Google, and then open a few at a time depending on what I'm doing.

I also have a quite large collection of bookmarks for ease of access to the regularly visited and places I like to keep track of.

I usually close out all tabs when I am done. Sometimes I'll have a two dozen open then pair them done the essentials.

I bookmark things all the time, but never find them again cause they're in utter chaos.

In case that's aimed at me, no. I have decent memory and an SSD so things run pretty fast. Plus I recently upgraded to Windows 10.

A breakdown, since the OP asked for it:

I don't think it's actually 64 now that I count them all, but close.

A directory structure with folders for different types of things helps.

The ability to peal one tab away and pull it to it's own window is really helpful when trying to follow an instructional video or tutorial. Not sure if that's just a Chrome thing, but there's also that. That's a tab thing. It's great when you have 2 monitors.

Yeah I have mine all organised, mostly under the "Research" folder, which is then subdivided into things like "History", "Music", TV" "Movies" etc, and subdivisions on. It does make it a whole lot easier instead of paging through a massive long list of unrelated bookmarks. I use Opera, by the way, but I think it's the same basic setup as Chrome.

I do have a bunch of recipe links floating all over the place I need to reorganize. Chrome's Bookmark Manager has similar functionality of Win Explorer, so it's just a Cut/Paste thing but when do I have the time to do all that. lol

Google says there’s going to start deleting your stuff if you’re using too much of their storage.

I did get that memo. I was actually just looking for my gmail account original signup date, but my emails only go back to 2009 and I signed up around 2002, so either it's cutting off to the data point or the date. Not sure. Bookmarks are minimal specs of data to store. Very much the same as text in a txt file.
