Bookmarks all the way for returning to pages in later sessions. Tabs use up computer memory and processor capacity and slow down the computer.
I start with one tab when I switch on my computer, open 2 or 3 more as I do stuff, close them when I've finished with them, then close them all before switching off, like switching off lights when I leave a room to save energy, then switching everything off in the house when I go out.
It isn't strictly true that tabs use up all your resources, especially if you're someone who turns your computer off at the end of the day.
As you open new tabs, yes they will take up resources - but if you're restoring sessions with many open tabs, most browsers only load the tab which is currently "on top" in each window. The others only load up when you switch to them. Safari on iOS will actively shut down tabs (but not close them) that haven't been used recently.
I make heavy use of tabs as sort of ephemeral bookmarks, for pages I want to revisit later and only once and can close quickly afterwards - might be nice if browsers built that in as an explicit feature though.
Tabs are tremendously useful. I have open tabs for the websites used on a regular basis and other open for audio/visual/text content that I want to check later. I can switch between quickly and easily.
Tabs are the best thing to happen to net browsers.
