..starve them! No web browser deserve more than 2 to 4 cpu threads
or more than 4GB of ram. I watch youtube videos on Google's chromium
web browser at nice -n 17 at 1920x1200@60Hz on my 2 Dell Precision
M4400 (8GB ram, one has an Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 @ 2.80GHz and the
other a T9400 @ 2.53GHz cpu, both has NVIDIA's G96GLM [Quadro FX 770M]
running the nouveau driver. (I usually prefer youtube at 1280x800,
less stutter in rain, wireless ISP.)

..ok, 4K video games etc might need more, just keep them in qemu etc
vms, no need to let any of that crap crash your hardware. RT, nice
etc is there to help you kill the crap you keep in virtual machines.

..I'd lean towards more cores rather than higher speeds, you can much
more easily throw things into vms and let them chew thru with a dozen
cpu treads, with 2, virtualization approaches virtual uselessness. ;o)

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
best case, worst case, and just in case.
