Don't you find physically managing so many tabs problematic in Chromium?

The UI stalling behavior doesn't seem to be dependant on hitting RAM or CPU bottlenecks, since when it happens I still have idle and under-used cores, and ram is not close to full. As I understand it, Chrome stops giving you "one tab per process" once you pass a certain number of tabs and I'm guessing that's where the problem comes from.

My test system is smaller than yours: 8 cores and 8G RAM, but that ought to be sufficient out to at least 100 tabs.

I rarely keep them all in one window. It's easy to move tabs around in Chrome thus I group them in windows thematically and then spread windows over virtual desktops.

That explains your success. When I say 100 tabs, I mean per window. Tab title width becomes useless in chrome very quickly, though there are extensions which can make it behave like Firefox.
