I use firefox.  It seems to do lazy restoration of tabs, which makes it 
somewhat more performant.

I've noticed that when it gets slow, doing killall firefox-esr and the 
restarting it does wonders for speed.  Rumour has it that firefox never 
releases storage for a deleted tab, causing it to bloat.

I should try Chromium sometime.  Chrome itself is no longer supported on 
32-bit Linux.

I hate the way there aren't any cross-browser bookmarks.  Another form 
of lock-in.
