It's normal for me to have 100 or more tabs. Bookmarks are for more permanent sites - that I know I'll probably have to access multiple times later. If it's just a one time thing, it doesn't deserve to be a bookmark. At the most, it can be a 'ReadItLater' (Pocket) thing. I use Containers and Tab Groups extensively.

100 tabs on Chrome 10 years ago would not be very nice on the hardware. When you add Chrome's waste-of-space UI and horrible UX (broken ctrl+tab) with no option to change it, it's no wonder people didn't use more than a handful of tabs. On the other hand, if you had a browser that had no issues with it, you might get used to it.

So while it comes down to preference, I think the preference was highly influenced by the technology.
