This is because RAM memory gets full...

What browser are you using?

Indeed. Best practice is to close tabs you don't absolutely need to keep open -- 50 tabs is quite a few. Better to rely on bookmarks for frequently uses pages. Sites you rely on frequently can be added to your trusted sites so they'll load faster and you don't have to keep logging in if a log on is required.

Once you've run out of available RAM, the computer will slow to the point of freezing.

If your browser has a 'speed dial' feature you can also keep them more accessible than bookmarks or excessive number of tabs.
