That is not entirely accurate.

* Tabs start out at some pre-set maximum width (~200–300px?).
* As new tabs are added, after they start pushing against the window
edge, they shrink proportionally to fit, down to some pre-set minimum
* When tabs don’t fit even at their minimum width:
  * Chrome shows the N leftmost tabs that fit, and does not bother
with the rest.
  * Firefox adds scroll arrows at the ends of its tab bar.
    * A somewhat popular mod for Firefox enables multi-row tab bar;
the tab bar grows vertically to accommodate all tabs, until some
pre-set maximum row count. After that, it adds a vertical scroll bar.
