Safari Web Content (cached) - using memory

Hello,

something wrong going with Safari. I open Activity monitor and see a lot of "Safari Web Content (cached)" processes. They take my RAM space even though I have just one tab opened. What is this process and how can I eliminate it? I did not see anything similar earlier (using Mac since 2015)

Edit: All history and cache deleted, no extensions

They will automatically be closed when the ram will be needed by other apps.

The thing is, I have Macbook Air 2018 and Macbook Pro 2017, both which are loaded with lot of information and none of it shows "Cached" safari activity even if there are 10 tabs opened. My iMac Pro, otherwise is clean and freshly reinstalled and still showing "cached" Saafri pages thus using memory

Your iMac Pro has got more free memory to use for cache and friends. Like I said before, they will be removed when the ram is actually needed by other processes.
