Hi guys, I don't know why, I had a few pages open at most, and suddenly Safari ate 66 GB of memory. As a result OneNote became unstale and I lost some stuff. After closing Safari, everything including kernel_task went right back to normal which is using just under a GB right now. Is is there a way I can figure out what went wrong at that time? I have attached a screenshot. I am on 10.10.5?

After disabling ALL extensions and a reboot still the same, I have to force close it after under a minute as it just goes all ram devouring. Any thoughts?

I'm on El Cap and I've yet to have anything like this happen, even with 10-15+ tabs open.

That's why its a memory leak, you don't have to open a lot up at all for it to happen, somewhere there is a leak, resetting seems to ahve fixed it though.

I've never had it happen - with 2 tabs or 15, and I mostly run with 2 - 3 tabs open at a time. First time I've ever seen anything like this been reported. It seems like an issue, but not a common one.

But again, I'm on El Cap.
