tl;dr Tab behaviour (reload on tab-switch) and breaks informal standards (typical user expectations). Please passively save previous tab state to disk if there's space, or fix it if it's there and tweakable.

Related Questions pointing to possible code priority mis-sequencing:


Unfortunately, when you open an address in a new tab, it is not really a new tab that is opened, but only a new page loaded. If you close or change the tab it must first be loaded again.

Is planned that one day the pages remain in the memory and does not need to be reloaded?

At a general thought, that also requires a bit of user discipline or intelligent memory management - just look at desktop browsers! It'd be ideal if you could save a browser tab to disk, instead of having a 3gb RAM browser process

Maybe put some limit to the max number of tabs, but let them be real tabs and not simply temporary bookmarks ;)

Yes, but the possibility of viewing minimum 2 REAL tabs at once should be given to compare things on sites.

In my own opinion it should be up to 3. Thats the normal amount of tabs I use at once, while using other devices.
