Default RAM for Desktop Use

I noticed that my latest system, with 8GB ram, performs significantly better than the old 4GB system. Seems to have fewer browser core dumps. The improvement was marginal when booting Debian Buster. I typically do not open more than 5 browser tabs and have seen tests where some tabs can consume 2GB.

I don't see it as a flaw, just the cost of a secure platform that does not tolerate memory leaks or pledge violations.

It does raise the question: If 8GB is better than 4GB in OpenBSD, would 16GB be even better? RAM is relatively cheap and I have the slots.
