    I have to admit this is the first time Safari has gone this high, but sorry Professor, i just can't bring myself to use "a better browser", I'm not sure what it is about it, and the other F word one, i just don't like the look of it. Too much colour for my liking
    I do use either one when i can't open something in Safari (for some reason i still can't get some Soundcloud songs to play) and thats it for me, or unless I'm fault finding, so you do get some of my grace :bows:

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    I use Safari all day long (literally, 12 hours a day) and while I don't dispute any claims of memory leaks it has never been an issue for me ... perhaps that's because I actually quit programs when I'm doing using them? In these days of two-second launches (if that), it just seem silly to leave programs open when not in use to me ...

    I do. Im forever Command/Tab/Q but i do leave iTunes, Tweetbot and probably Text Edit or Preview open all the time. I don't see how that is going to play with Safari's Memory Leak. Not matter what, it gets up to 4.54gb and its king useless and your lucky to save anything if its open in Safari. It doesn't seem to creep up on you, it BAM and its got ya :-/

    You can say the names of the browsers - they're not mystical.

    Every browser has its problems. I might like Chrome but it certainly has its fair share of pitfalls (why oh why must pinned tabs, at random times, just simply fail to load?). Use what you like and just accommodate what doesn't.

    Quitting an application shouldn't have to be a method of memory management though.
