    Open Activity Monitor, click on ALL processes, then on the real memory tab to show the processes which use the most RAM.

    Unless you're experiencing page outs under normal workloads, you don't have to worry about or even watch RAM usage. OS X will manage RAM without user interference.

    I was wondering if an update came out or something. My mac is managing the memory much better, I just think it's weird.
