Unfortunately, no, that's not obvious if I think about it. E.g. for a simple "mark and sweep", I can't see why you can't have a "backlink" (plus "mark flag") built into each allocated object's header ("pre-allocated" as part of allocating memory for the object), so that you can traverse in one direction by searching the object for references to other objects (that you aren't already marking because they don't have their backlink field set already) and can traverse in the opposite direction by following the current object's backlink; without recursion, and without any allocations made during garbage collection.

Further, (assuming the ability to use some kind of "atomic compare and swap") I can't see why it would be hard (using the same "pre-allocated backlink" approach) to have multiple threads/CPUs doing GC at the same time.

The only thing I don't find obvious is whether "mark and sweep" can avoid stopping all other threads while "mark" happens. My intuition is telling me that it should be possible (by replacing "mark flag" with "marker version") to have no restrictions (any thread can be doing other work or doing GC at any time) with no allocations during GC; but I don't like GC and don't want to invest time into figuring out if my intuition can be trusted.

5 processes and a total of 580 MiB, for one open tab? In that case, depending on what the page was (not forgetting that some pages are like this: https://bellard.org/jslinux/vm.html?url=buildroot-x86.cfg ), I would say it's "potentially excessive". However; I still remember (e.g.) running Netscape on a machine with 64 MiB of RAM (back when > 500 MiB of disk space was rare) without a single problem, so maybe my idea of "acceptable" is lagging too far behind what other people consider "normal".

Of course I hope we all agree that "no swap at all" (for any machine that doesn't overcommit) is silly.

My idea of infallible is "guaranteed to always succeed", not "maybe failing but handling the failure in a generic way for you".

I'd still say that "language handling OOM in a generic way for you" is better than "OOM killer" (but worse than more specific handling).

I didn't describe "a way", I described multiple potential methods of handling OOM (where which is best depends on the specific case).

I won't waste my time finding more examples of each possible way of handling OOM just so you can say "Oh, it only uses method A and not method B" again; especially when my main point is that overcommit has led to software not doing these things; and especially after you spent days trying to convince me that FireFox does do (some of) these things (and is an example that you're asking for).

Can you point to any actual example of a codebase that does not use any of the multiple potential methods I've described, that is "not shit" (not improvable) and is not intended for a "no multi-tasking, all computers identical" environment?

What, exactly, do you think is funny about (e.g.) preventing rogue processes from tricking the OS into killing system services/daemons or the entire GUI? Linux (kernel, and distros) have spent about 20 years trying to work around those problems.
