    I'm getting memory leaks in Safari - pretty bad ones. Not sure if it's El Capitan or Safari 9.

    They're related to:

    1. Pandora, which is of course Flash (I hate Flash, but I like my Pandora and don't want to switch to another service after all the time I spent getting my playlist where I want it) - Flash memory leaking to several gigabytes after about 20-30 minutes.

    2. An incremental in browser game called Kittens Game. In the previous version it would grow the process to about 600MB and then stop. Now, it's...not stopping...

    Annoyingly, everything else is taking way less memory.

    Anyone got a workaround that isn't "Use another browser"?

    What version of Flash are you using. I have 19.0.0.185.

    I have been running Pandora about 2 hours (just upgraded from PB6 to Final) and memory for the tab is at 191 MB.

    The Pandora problem appears to have been transient. I'm now seeing similar memory usage to you. Sorry about that :/.

    Still have the other one, though. That page is all javascript...

    As I said, the flash problem turned out to be transient. It's javascript that's leaking.
