    I've noticed that Safari, since upgrading to 10.9.4, when sitting idle in the Dock always Quits-closes-shuts down after several minutes of none use.
    Is this by design or is it a flaw.

    Resolved...

    A re-install of the 10.9.4 combo updater seems to have corrected this issue.

    A lot of apps do this. OS X has had self termination since Lion. I've noticed it happening with Safari, Calendar, and Preview if they sit idle for long enough.

    Further study led me to this Article, which I'm testing right now.
