    Literally all of a sudden, Safari 10.1 has been consuming 200-300% processor and 50-60GB of RAM. Even with no tabs opened and extensions disabled. I've rebooted, deleted caches, deleted plugins to no avail. When I boot in safe mode, it runs normally. It's making my computer unusable. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Etrecheck and/or Malwarebytes. Get each one from its original developer's site, not a secondary site like cnet.

    If you run Etrecheck, post the list of what it tells you.

    Do you have another account on you computer and does safari have the same issue there?

    I ran EtreCheck and it saved the day! I had spent so many hours troubleshooting but EtreCheck revealed issues with GoToMeeting and DNSCrypt, which I haven't used in a long time. I went through and tried to root out any remaining files from the Library and, luckily, that seems to have done that trick.
