What in gods green earth would require Slack to consume 1/2 Gig of RAM? It's a f***ing messaging app!!! Or Postman, which is really nothing but an awful front-end UI for sending REST API calls and receiving responses?

Between the two of them, 1GB. Two Visual Studio instances, another 1.5GB. SQL Server + SSMS, 700MB.

And don't even get me started on Chrome. 17 tabs and almost 5GB. Close Chrome, restart with exactly the same 17 tabs, and now it uses a meager 2GB.

WTF? On a 16GB machine, I had 90% memory utilization (there are other things too, stuff consuming 200MB, etc). F***ing insane.
