Author here, let me know if anyone has questions :D

Tangential note - the thing I'm most proud of about that article is that splash image

To get the logo to contour along the vat, I added a 3d sphere in the position of the vat, pasted puppeer's logo into the texture layer, then made every other part of the sphere transparent

Crazy what you can do in Photoshop nowadays

why not use two pools... one for the browser, another for the page... this way multiple pages can exist against one browser?

Added an update to the article with a link to the gist with your suggestion of using the single browser :D Thanks again!

That's a great idea! Embarrassed to admit I hadn't thought of that :p

I don't imagine it'd make a difference in speed, but should be more efficient in memory (which is indeed a scarce resource on the cheap boxes)

Memory will be similar, but the start time of browser instances will be reduced.  Chrome creates a separate management/runtime process for each tab/page.
