More Snap packages maybe? (Hopefully not.)

EDIT: Just remembered that Flatpaks will be enabled.

I'll provide one thing I've really noticed


I have had an issue with browser extensions for a couple of years in both chromium & firefox; the issue doesn't occur if I don't use these extensions, but does when I do & I prefer using them thus I do.

I've learnt to manage the issue via htop being left running in a terminal window; and when I detect signs of growing-RAM-usage by either browser I confirm with my running htop & then close the browser down.. let the kernel clear up the RAM & when I see evidence of that (again on htop window) I restart the browser(s).

I've not had to do that for awhile thanks to systemd-oomd as the system does it for me

I've also noticed it killing other apps too

I sit on the development branch, and that's one change I've noticed of late. ie. what I used to do manually (kill the naughty process before it's a problem for me) is now being done automatically; and I just need to restart it :slight_smile:


Some information on what's happening on Ubuntu proper that my bleed over to Ubuntu-MATE.
