1 - what are all the computer specs needed for chrome with 100-1000+ tabs to run smoothly?
 
8g ram on win10 is not enough, need 16g ram
 
opening lots of tabs makes computer very slow -- for a long long time..
 
what are the specs to resolve all these problems
 
2 - would using chrome on win10 or chromeos make any signficant difference or no?
 
3 - are there any key tests to run on the current computer (and to test on future new computer to make sure all is working stable)? to see what's up with chrome?

Use FF if you want to have a lot of tabs open, Chrome will eat up your memory slowly with each new tab while FF can handle 350+ with just about 0,5 - 1GB of RAM.

People say a lot of mixed "msgs" about chrome too, it is just a preference. I am sure that nobody here did a tab benchmark, you can try it for yourself if you want to. Chrome needs a lot of RAM and I think that under 8GB it can run about 300 tabs so with 16GB it would be about 600 - 800 tabs.

 

If you want a lot of open tabs then either buy a big RAM, nothing else is needed to be upgraded, or use FF.

 

If you'd like to do a benchmark and decide for yourself then you can open a lot of random websites in tabs with these :

* so are you saying ram is the only and main thing that matters?

cpu

ssd

none of these and nothing else matters for hw?

does the type or anything else about the ram matter? or is it just the amount?

I don't really know much about other specs of a ram than its size, but I think that the difference between a cheap and an expensive ram with the same size is not a big one. About other components - increasing the amount of tabs in chrome does not increase disk / cpu usage by much since only like 5 - 15 of them are actually loaded, the rest are just waiting in the background. Try the great suspender extension, maybe it will help to increase the amount tabs you can fit in a ram. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/the-great-suspender/klbibkeccnjlkjkiokjodocebajanakg

That is a great extension.  I have 1 client that their software only works (well it was designed for Chrome) in Chrome.  We have found that increasing the RAM to 16GB and using the Great Suspender extension seems to have helped resolve their slowness issues.  Some users have SSDs and others have HDDs.  Both are no longer complaining of being "slow".

 

Granted, if you were using a single core processor at 1.5Ghz, then yes, it will still be slow.  As Daniel said, at this point move to FF.  There really is no other thing to upgrade.
