    Google Chrome for Android seems to have the ability to have unlimited amount of tabs. Even with 99 different tabs, Chrome doesn't close any earlier tabs to make room for new one. Safari for iOS behaves in the opposite manner. What about Microsoft Edge for WM10?

    Depends on how much ram you have, opening just 100+ blank new tabs is nothing really (I opened 103 just now) with no noticeable lag.

    General performance also depends on your general specs i.e CPU ability, seek times and other factors i.e how fragmented your HDD etc etc.

    Pretty sure iOS has nearly unlimited tabs as well.

    Now, both Edge, Chrome, and Safari, I'm willing to bet my bottom dollar they all clean out old webpages to free up memory. (hence reloading a page when you return to it)

    also OPs talking about mobile.

    Oh really? The last time I was using Safari on iOS, the browser will close earlier tabs as I create new tabs. That was very annoying. Can you try opening 100 tabs and see that everything is still there? I don't mind cleaning out the old pages, but I hate how it closes the earlier tabs.

    On the 950 seems you can open as many as you like but the page will just not load at a certain point

    Who cares to have unlimited tabs if you have to reload each one individually. This is why mobile computing can't compete with desktop computing. I can have 100 tabs open in Chrome on the PC and they're all fully loaded.

    Can you try 50 and tell me if that's still the case? I don't recalled Safari behaving like this before.

    not about to try that since its kinda tedious but:

    iOS 7: The ultimate Safari guide
    Says to have become unlimited in iOS 7.

    How to Open Unlimited Safari Tabs on iPhone/iPad in iOS 9 [Xaris Cydia Tweak]
    but this indicates a limit of 36 tabs, which is a lot.
