Moreover, who says you're using a browser that puts different tabs in
different threads; that that browser would still work correctly if you
suspend a single thread and leave the others running; and that you
even know that it's possible to suspend processes?  (Windows doesn't
even give the option in its default GUIs, last I checked, although
it's possible to do.)
