Ok so my mac is 6 years old, core 2 duo, 8gb ram (I upgraded) and standard 160gb HDD (I had ordered my ssd a while back and was all sorted, but returned it due to having unforeseen bills to pay, and never re-ordered one after that). I know multiple tabs eats up at memory but I was wondering if this is normal memory usage for safari, as to me it seems like quite a bit, and with basically no programmes running 6gb/8gb of my ram is being used My fans run 24/7, its constantly on no matter what I'm doing, even if I'm just using a few tabs of safari the fan will be on and the laptop hot to touch. Ive accepted this is just because my machine is old and possibly because I don't have an ssd. (I clean the inside of my mac every few months now, dust build up is crazy). Is this a problem with safari, or my mac? From what I can remember doing I've cleared cache's, run disk repair, the only extension I now use is adblock Thanks for any help, James.
