With these machines:

In my case, I can't go that far. Two tabs (Facebook and Gmail) were more 
than enough to slow down the machine a lot. With one more tab, it was 
almost not usable.

IIRC, that was on Saucy and I always set my swap to 1-2GB in case I have 
low RAM.

What works for you might not work for the others. That is why we should 
play it safe and not get into deep details.

For me, I can't help here as I have never tested that because I don't 
upgrade :)
