I rely heavily on SuperDuper! for my backups. I have not needed to boot from such a backup many times due to an emergency, but I have used such a method like AniMill did for doing a clean, fresh installation of the Mac OS, and then subsequently migrating/copying needed files, folders, apps, settings, etc. from that backup. Sure has been fool proof for me.
Apple has been making life more and more difficult as each year goes by. This "event" is, and will be, an abortion.
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.
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.
