Though this is factually incorrect (I have three monitors, and thus often
have three browser instances in full-screen on each), the spirit is that
the number of visible tabs is often much less than that of the number of
tabs total.

The requests still need to be sent, though they should be prioritized
appropriately, and the responses to them from the server sent according to
that priority.
That prioritization is mostly orthogonal, however.
