I came across the Brave browser which promises faster Web by banishing intrusive ads, stripping away everything but the real content.
On its website we can read:
Up to a whopping 60% of page load time is caused by the underlying ad technology that loads into various places each time you hit a page on your favorite news site. And 20% of this is time spent on loading things that are trying to learn more about you.
Here is example news page data and load time with tracking allowed and normal ads allowed against same page data and load time with tracking blocked and normal ads blocked:
It has very minimalistic features with class leading speed, security and protection which gives users control over their personal data by blocking ad trackers and third party cookies. For example on mobile devices the web page load time speedups is massive (see: Brave Browser iOS Speed Test).
The large amount of tabs can be organised by tab pages, where maximum tabs can be separated per each page.
The desktop browser is a cross-platform desktop application with support for most of major operating systems created with a fork of Github's Electron framework that is itself based on Node.js and Chromium.
You may compare the JS speed between the browsers using speed-battle browser test. I had better results in terms of overall score with Brave than with Chrome on Macbook Pro.

Alternative web-browsers (which can be quicker than Chrome), are:
Epic (privacy browser)
It takes similar approach to Brave by blocking tracking scripts and ads which loads webpages as much as 25% faster than other browsers.
Opera and its Turbo mode
Using turbo mode (HTTP only) speed up slow connections and load pages faster since Opera's servers identifies pieces of the page that can be compressed and sends back these smaller-sized pieces to your computer, reducing volume of data transferred by up to 80%.
The web content your device receives to a fraction of its original size. You get all the videos, photos and text that you normally would, but you eat up less data and load pages faster.
Maxthon Cloud Browser
It's using less memory than Firefox, Chrome or Opera.softwareinsider

Midori (based on WebKit), support for Windows & Linux, but not OS X
Midori is blazing fast, utilizing the latest web technologies and a small, but dexterous array of extensions provide all the essential features.
On the other hand, Chrome could be not so bad, if properly tweaked. See this for further details: Chrome addon to stop "Page(s) Unresponsive" message.
