Lets just list the ones (that I know) that don't:  lynx.

:-) I thought you said that we would have a 50% loss problem.  Are you
just grasping for straws?  :-)

Yes.  But you assume that state is necessary to maintain.  It may not
be.   My experience has shown me that browsers don't switch IP addresses
between queries, they use the first one that works and they keep using
it as long as it works.  When it quits working they try the next one in
round-robin fashion.
