  • Apple was founded 45 years ago, on April 1, 1976

    Definitely brings back fond, fond memories! I distinctly remember the first time I got my Apple IIE n the early 1980s. What a pleasure to use. Then, getting those infamous expansion cards, and the Apple DouDisk (ie, had two slots for 5 1/4" disks). In 1984, the place I was working at (a bank) received a shipment of the original Macintosh machine. I got to play with it while at work, and at that time, at least to me, it was OK. But I could not wait to get home and use my IIE. IN 1987 or thereabouts, I upgraded to an Apple IIGS, and that venerable machine lasted me a long, long time, until 1996, when I moved to my first Mac. Been on Macs ever since.

  • Chrome is still a memory hog on macOS compared to Safari

    I have not used Google Chrome in quite a while, but I do use Brave just about exclusively. I do only run one application at a time, and for the most part, have no memory issues with it. The times I have memory issues are when I visit the site yahoo.com. Besides viewing some stories on that site (some contain videos that I also look at), when I leave it, most of the memory it consumed is not "given back". I'm willing to bet that issue is prevalent with all browsers.

    I do at times run the freeware application Memory Clean while browsing with Brave, and it definitely helps with memory management.
