I use tabbed browser in the same way as you, and would also like to see
a stack- or fifo-based browser -- or perhaps an external program that
would provide this functionality to surf or uzbl.

One reason I have used tabs is to preload a webpage in the background.
If the utility could preload the next page, it would address this
need. But I don't see a need to preload *every* page. (Of course,
if the web were suckless, pages wouldn't take so long to load and
this wouldn't be an issue.)
