    Is it me, or with every few Mac updates, Apple decides to make more strict "energy sufficiency"?

    Upon opening Safari on 14.4, I immediately got this:

    I thought Safari as supposed to be better when it came to battery optimization... when just viewing a plan text website Google search etc.. where as when i open Firefox, the first thing i hear is the fan spin up high. Doesn't always happen, but sometimes.

    just opening a web page in any browser should never cause a fan to start up.
    are you sure you have enough space on yr hard drive?

    There is nothing the browser can do. Normal website these days are 5 MB of javascript monsters that runs video and animated popup automatically. Either use a adblocker or avoid the web.

    Use add blocker as suggested above. Makes huge difference. I tested that few days ago and it was shocking difference.
    Safari is innocent, every browser will have same problems.

    I do use UBlock Origin.

    SSD has plenty of space as well. 227Gig available....I expected the "using sufficient energy" from third party browsers NOT from Safari where Apple is, had has, got the foot hold of memory management, and can easy optimise their own stuff better because it's built-in.

    I might try reset SMC/PRAM.
