I already know Google Chrome was using a lot of memory for a badly behaving webpage. The issue was I don't know which webpage was doing that.
Sometimes after a day or two, possibly some webpage on Google Chrome might be using a lot of memory.
- Some webpage might not be intentionally broken or harmful but it could be the analytics or the ad system having a lot of memory leaks in their code
- Eventually, the Macbook swaps memory to disk and if unchecked, complaints of hard disk space running low arrive.
Using trail-and-error, if I close all tab and wait 2 - 3 minutes or quit entirely, then the hard drive all of a sudden gains back 2GB.
Is there a way to hunt down which webpage is eating up so much memory, other than by trail-and-error?
