Do tabs in Apple Safari get their own processes?
It appears they do when I pull up the process manager ...
Yes, tabs in Safari get their own processes. It's been that way for quite a few years now but it wasn't always that way.

This article explains how to install, use, and manage Safari extensions. Instructions in this article apply to Safari 9 and later.
How to Download and Install Safari Extensions
Installing Safari extensions is an easy process. You can find a selection within Safari itself.
Open Safari and select Safari Extensions from the Safari menu.
The App Store opens to the Safari Extensions section. Scroll to find an extension you want to add. Downloading extensions is like buying anything else in the Mac App Store .
Click Get on a free extension or the price on a paid extension.
The Get button or price button becomes a green Install button. Click it to download the extension.
Your Mac may ask you to authorize the purchase even if the extension is free. Do so to continue the download.
To activate the new extension, return to Safari and select Preferences under the Safari menu.
The keyboard shortcut is Command + , (comma).
Select the Extensions tab in the Safari General preferences screen.
Click the check box next to the extension you downloaded.
Confirm the activation by selecting Turn On in the pop-up window.
To browse for additional add-ons, click the More Extensions button to return to the Mac App Store. Repeat these steps for all the extensions you download.
How to Use a Safari Extension
How you use a Safari extension depends on its functionality, but some elements are common to all of them. Generally speaking, you access and use an extension by clicking its icon on your Safari Toolbar. Once you do that, it runs an automated process or opens a menu to let you set preferences or select actions.
For example, the Grammarly extension runs automatically while you write, but you can open the menu to turn it off or on for a website.
How to Manage or Delete Safari Extensions
Once you start loading extensions for your Safari browser, you're probably going to want to manage their use or uninstall the extensions you don't like or just never use.
Return to the Extensions pane of Safari's Preferences pane.
Click the name of the extension you want to remove in the left pane.
To temporarily disable the extension, remove the check mark from the box next to it.
To remove an extension completely, click Uninstall in the right pane.
You can redownload extensions you've uninstalled as long as they're still available in the App Store.
What Are Safari Extensions?
Extensions are third-party developers add-on code that uses Safari's web features for specific tasks, such as making it easier to search Amazon, allowing an app, such as 1Password, to integrate with the browser and create an easy-to-use password management system, or adding an effective way to block pop-up ads.
You'll also find that most social media sites have Safari extensions that make posting to your favorite social site as simple as clicking a button in the Safari toolbar .
Where to Find More Safari Extensions
The App Store isn't the only place to download Safari extensions; it's just the easiest. You can also find them on other sites with a quick internet search.
Safari extensions are generally safe to install. Apple requires all extensions to run within the basic tools it provides in the Safari extension environment. You don't necessarily have to worry that one you download outside of the App Store will wreck your computer but make sure you trust the developer before you install anything they made.

Where's the 'task manager' on a mac.
New to Mac and looking for the Task Manager? Apple's equivalent is Activity Monitor---we'll show you where it is and and how to use it.
Terminating stubborn programs with "force quit", troubleshooting with more detail: activity monitor.
If you're a veteran of Windows, you're probably familiar with using Task Manager to deal with applications that freeze or checking memory usage. On a Mac, those tasks fall to a Force Quit dialog or a utility called Activity Monitor , which has shipped with every version of Mac OS X and macOS since 2000. Here's how to use them.
If you're familiar with pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete on a Windows PC to kill a stubborn program, you'll be glad to know that a similar three-finger combo exists on the Mac. When a program becomes unresponsive, simply press Command+Option+Esc to open the "Force Quit Applications" dialog .
A window will pop up that lists currently running apps. To close a stubborn one that refuses to quit normally, select it from the list, and click the "Force Quit" button.
After asking for confirmation, macOS will close the application you selected. Very handy.
Related: How to Control+Alt+Delete on a Mac
If you have a deeper system resource issue to look into on a Mac, such as memory consumption or detailed information on a particular app or process, you'll want to use Activity Monitor. By default, Activity Monitor lives in a folder called "Utilities" within your Applications folder on your Mac.
One of the fastest ways to open Activity Monitor is by using Spotlight. To open "Spotlight," click the small "magnifying glass" icon in your menu bar (or press Command+Space).
When the "Spotlight Search" bar appears, type "activity monitor," and hit "Return." Or you can click the "Activity Monitor.app" icon in the Spotlight results.
Once the "Activity Monitor" window opens, you will see a list of all the processes running on your Mac, similar to this:
Using the five tabs across the top of the window, you can visit displays that show information on running processes sorted by CPU usage ("CPU"), memory usage ("Memory"), energy usage ("Energy"), disk usage ("Disk"), and network usage ("Network"). Click the tab corresponding to the section you'd like to visit.
At any time while listing processes, you can select a process from the list, and click the "Stop" button (which looks like an octagon with an "x" inside it) to force it to quit, or click the "Inspect" button (an "i" in a circle) to see more information about the process.
And if you're overwhelmed by the number of processes listed, you can narrow them down using the "View" menu up in the menu bar. For example, you could select "My Processes," to see only a list of processes associated with your user account.
You can also search for a process using the search bar in the upper-right corner of the window. Just type in the name of the app or process you're looking for, and it will appear in the list (if it is currently running).
Activity Monitor is very handy, so take some time to explore it, and you'll become that much more adept at using it to troubleshoot your Mac . Have fun!

How to View and Kill Processes Using the Terminal in Mac OS X
Occasionally in Mac OS X, it may be necessary to force a program or process to quit. For example, if a particular program fails to respond or unexpectedly hangs. Every application on a Mac comprises of one or more processes.
It’s usually possible to use the Force Quit command (⌘⌥ esc) in the Apple Menu , but only individual applications are listed in the Force Quit Applications window rather than all processes which are running on your computer. If you are new to using the OSX Terminal, I can recommend the Macintosh Terminal Pocket Guide by Daniel J. Barrett as a great way to get started.
- Open the Terminal application
- List the running processes
- Find the process you want to close
- Kill the process
Probably the most useful tool to check and kill processes is called Terminal , which is an application that provides access to the lower levels of the Mac OS X operating system and files. Terminal is a text-based tool which lets you conduct all manner of routine tasks such as viewing directories, copying, moving and deleting files, as well as obtain detailed information about each process running including:
- the process ID (PID)
- the elapsed time spent running
- the command or application file path
About Activity Monitor
A related indispensable application is Activity Monitor – a graphical tool that allows you to manage processes, however it doesn’t have quite the same capabilities that Terminal does. Activity Monitor shows common process-related details such as the memory used and percentage of CPU that each process is consuming. When used together, Activity Monitor and Terminal provide a powerful yet relatively straightforward way to inspect and manage wayward processes.
The main Activity Monitor window is shown below.
Each application on your Mac has an associated Process ID (a PID) and a user-friendly name. From here you can inspect or quit each process, but in this example we use Activity Monitor simply as a companion to Terminal.
The Apple Mail application is displayed in Activity Monitor with a PID number of 14649. Note that process ID’s are assigned by Mac OS, and therefore will not be the same on your computer as somebody else’s.
How to Use Terminal
The first step is to open Terminal either from the Applications -> Utilities folder or simply type Terminal into Spotlight. Terminal is always represented by the icon below.
Once it opens you’ll be presented with a standard Terminal window as below.
The first line shows the date and time when you last logged in. The second line is the command prompt which is where you enter the commands you wish to execute . The command prompt always begins with your computer name followed by your local Account Name.
The current directory (the “working directory”) when you open Terminal always defaults to your Home Folder.
Basic Terminal Commands
Before we describe how to check and terminate a process on your computer it’s worth knowing a few basic Terminal commands.
- To show the current folder name type pwd
- To list the files in the current folder type ls -l
- To move into another folder type cd <folder name>
Note that many commands in Terminal can accept various options (sometimes called switches) that can alter their effect. The simplest way to discover the available command-line options is to type the command into Terminal followed by -? such as ls -?
Another useful command is apropos. Enter apropos <command> into the Terminal window for a description of that command and its options.
To View All Processes
- Type ps -ax at Terminal’s command prompt to list every process running, along with additional details such as the PID, the elapsed time running, and the process name and location (shown in the CMD column)
To Find a Specific Process
The process list displayed using ps -ax may include a hundred or more processes, but it’s quite simple to identify a process based on the name in the CMD column (for example Skype is listed as /Applications/Skype.app/Contents/MacOS/Skype), or even by the PID if you already know it.
As shown in Activity Monitor earlier, the Mail application on my Mac had the PID 14649, so it’s simple to scroll down the Terminal window until the relevant process is found.
One very useful command to help find a process by name or PID is grep which can filter out the desired information. It can be used in conjunction with the ps -ax command to list only the process that you are interested in.
- At the command prompt type ps -ax | grep <application name>. For example ps -ax | grep Skype
The “pipe” function (“|”) simply uses the output from the process list as an input to grep, to filter out the desired process name.
Assuming that Skype is actually running, you may see a result something like this:
Roland-Bankss-MacBook-Pro:~ roly$ ps -ax | grep Skype 14530 ?? 0:56.32 /Applications/Skype.app/Contents/MacOS/Skype -psn_0_9218250 14947 ttys000 0:00.00 grep Skype
This example shows that Skype has a PID of 14530 and also the folder where Skype was launched from. The last line is just the process ID of the grep command itself, which can be safely ignored.
Repeating the command with the Skype process ID instead i.e. ps -ax | grep Skype yields the same result.
To Terminate (Kill) a Process
Once you know the process ID, killing it using Terminal is very simple. Be cautious however because forcing a process to suddenly exit can have unforeseen consequences, so it’s advisable to check carefully that the process you are about to kill is the correct one. There are essentially two easy ways to kill a process:
- By PID: the simplest way is with the kill command followed by the PID, which causes the selected process to terminate immediately. In the Sky example, kill 14530 does the job and causes the process to exit immediately
- By name: this method uses the killall command to kill all the processes that contain that name. For example killall Skype will terminate all the processes that have Skype in their name
Caution: killall should be used sparingly to avoid accidentally terminating the wrong processes. There is no confirmation prompt to ask if you really do wish to kill the processes, so check carefully beforehand.
Before you go
After spending over 20 years working with Macs, both old and new, theres a tool I think would be useful to every Mac owner who is experiencing performance issues.

Thanks for this great tip. i was confused about grep commands. this article is very usefull to understand the grep command use. please suggest me more articles like this for mac.
Thank you. The second ps command is the same as the first, I assume you copied and pasted it and forgot to change it to use the process id. And kill or killall doesn’t work in my case, most likely because my user can’t see the process I am trying to kill. ps -ax was new to me, but I came to the site not only to find out how to list all processes, but to kill one of them not running in the shell I use for it (Notification Center, in my case, because it hangs after standby sometimes). I think I won’t check back here, because I am sure I will find this information elsewhere on the Internet, but perhaps you want to edit your post for the next one who comes here with the same questions.
huge help!! thanks

How to open the Task Manager on Mac and monitor load
Similarly to the Windows equivalent, in the Apple Task Manager you can easily close programs that are frozen or hanging . But if you want more details about a problem, you’ll need to open the Mac Activity Monitor. This lets you kill unused or unresponsive applications, and consult statistics on CPU and memory load, and energy use . But how do you open the Task Manager on a Mac? And what information is shown in the Activity Monitor? We’ve put together a step-by-step guide to help you out.

The Mac Task Manager is a mini-version of the Activity Monitor. To open it, simultaneously press down the [CMD] + [ALT] + [ESC] keys on your keyboard. This will open a window containing a list of all currently opened programs and applications that are running in the background. Select the program or application that has frozen and click on the “Force Quit” button to close it.
The Alt key is also referred to as the Option key. In fact, on some keyboards it is actually labeled “Option”.
Mac Activity Monitor and CPU load
Like the Task Manager, the Mac Activity Monitor also lists all of the processes that are running on the system. You can open it by going into Applications and selecting Utilities , or searching for it directly in Spotlight by clicking on the magnifying glass in the upper-right corner of the menu bar.
The Mac Activity Monitor is split into several sections: CPU, Memory, Energy, Disk, Network, and (in later versions) Cache . The list of processes includes user apps, system apps used by the operating system, and invisible background processes. You can choose which columns to display and filter the processes by going into the “View” menu. As well as the Mac Activity Monitor, you can also install other programs such as htop to manage system processes.
The “CPU” pane shows how different processes are affecting CPU performance . Alongside the stats in the “Energy” pane, this information can help you work out what processes are affecting the performance, battery runtime, temperature and fan activity of your Mac. Just below the main window, you will see an additional section containing the following information:
- System : Percentage of CPU capability currently being used by system processes.
- User : Percentage of CPU capability currently being used by apps or processes launched by the user.
- Idle : Percentage of CPU capability not in use.
- CPU Load : Percentage of CPU capability currently being used by all processes (System and User combined).
- Threads : Total number of threads used across all processes.
- Processes : Total number of processes that are currently running.
When you open the Activity Monitor, you might notice that the CPU load for the kernel_task process is rather high, and also that the fan is working harder than usual. One of the roles of kernel_task is to regulate the temperature of the CPU .
The Memory pane of the Mac Activity Monitor tells you how memory is currently being used . The section at the bottom shows the following statistics:
- Memory Pressure : This is a graph that illustrates the availability of memory resources.
- Physical Memory : Total amount of RAM installed.
- Memory Used : Total amount of RAM currently in use.
- App Memory : Total amount of memory currently being used by apps and their processes.
- Wired Memory : Memory that cannot be compressed or paged out to the hard drive and that must therefore remain in RAM.
- Compressed : Amount of RAM that is compressed to make space for other processes.
- Swap Used : Space that the memory management system of the OS is using on your startup drive.
- Cached Files : Memory that was recently used by apps but is now available to other apps.
The “Energy” pane provides information on overall energy use and tells you how much energy is being used by each app. As in the other views, you can click the column headings to sort the processes according to the values measured. The bottom pane shows the following:
- Energy Impact : Total energy used by all apps.
- Graphics Card : Type of graphics card installed.
- Remaining Charge : Percentage of battery charge remaining.
- Time Until Full : Amount of time the Mac must be plugged into the mains before it is fully charged.
- Time on AC : Time elapsed since the Mac was plugged in.
- Time Remaining : Estimated amount of time the Mac can keep running on battery.
- Time on Battery : Time elapsed since the Mac was unplugged.
- Battery (Last 12 hours): Battery charge level over the last 12 hours.
The “Disk” pane shows how much data each process has read from or written to your disk. It also shows “reads in” and “writes out” (IO), that is, the number of times your Mac accesses the disk to read and write data. The information at the bottom of the “Disk” pane shows the total disk activity for all processes combined.
In the “Network” pane you can see how much data your Mac is sending and receiving over the network. This allows you to identify processes that are sending or receiving the largest amounts of data . The information at the bottom of the “Network” pane shows the total network activity for all apps combined.
In macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 or later, the Activity Monitor has an additional pane called “Cache” (if Content Caching is enabled in the “Sharing” pane of System Preferences). This pane shows information such as how much cached content local network devices have uploaded, downloaded or dropped over time.
The information available in the Activity Monitor will depend on what Apple devices and macOS version you are using.

Thanks for this Gary, it was really helpful to know what I should be seeing. Everything works as you show - apart from Safari. I am using Safari 16.1. With Stage Manager active Safari refuses to move to the side bar. It stays fixed whatever app I use - even in the finder. Can you think of a preference file I might delete (or other action) to put this right? Safari Technology works as expected.
Ken: Safari works just like any other app. Maybe you are looking at Safari in Full Screen mode? I'm not sure from your description what you are seeing. Maybe try a restart?
Thanks. Great video.
In Settings > Desktop & Dock, Stage Manager is greyed out, Message says,"Stage Manager requires "Displays have separate Spaces", to be enabled. How do I enable it? Thanks!
Russ: It is just below in the same Desktop & Dock section, under Mission Control.
I didn't see anything about the user being able to -- or not being able to -- save a stage manager configuration once they went through all the trouble to set it up. Or being able to preserve a stage manager configuration: for example, if an app is grouped with other apps into an app set within stage manager, if one of those apps is quit for whatever reason, stage manager "forgets" you had it grouped with the others. I'm guessing logout or shutdown wipes out all stage manager configurations.
Eric: There's really no "configuration." It is dynamic. It shows whatever apps are running and windows you have open. Logout and shutdown (why shut down??? why log out for that matter???) won't affect it unless you have your Mac set to quit all apps when you log out. But if you are asking about this, then I assume you don't have that option turned on anyway.
@Ken Taylor I had this same problem with several apps. Turns out that Stage Manager is very particular about how it interacts with Spaces. Not just in the “Displays have separate spaces” setting, but also in that apps you’ve assigned to appear in All Desktops will not show up in the sidebar no matter what you do. You have to assign them to “None.” Tough to tell whether this is intended behavior or a bug, since Stage Manager is so confusingly implemented.

Darren: I suppose that it makes sense that you can't use All Spaces with Stage Manager. Haven't played around with it though.
'Windows Switcher Works Differently' chapter (7:09):
When I use ⌘+`, the Stage Manager switches (most of the time) between various apps as you point out, but then once I cycle through to all apps in an App Set, I'm unable to continue switching as shown at 7:44. Wondering if anyone else has had this come up. Trying a restart in the meantime to see if this will resolve the issue.
Hi Gary and Chris,
Great video. I see the kind-of behavior Chris is talking about. Don't really understand Command-Backtick, but it's not behaving as Gary suggests i.
Paul: What are your Stage Manager "customize" settings in System Settings, Desktop & Dock? What windows do you have in the App Set you are trying the Command+` with?
Hi Gary, I will take more careful notes and then document what you request in this thread. Thanks for your video. I learned quite a bit.
Hi Gary. The simplest example is an "appSet" or "windowSet" with two Finder windows. Command-Backtick more than twice goes to limbo/statemate/no change. I have One at a Time set in Stage Manager. I think the Desktop might be considered as a Finder Destination for Command-Backtick and maybe it's getting "stuck" there. But the behaviour isn't continually cyclic as I would expect.
Paul: Finder is a special case. Yes, the Desktop is a "window" for it. So you get that in the sequence.
Hi Gary: Agree Finder looks like a special case. And Finder is very special, there really is no sequence. You get stuck in limbo with Command-Backtick.
Hi Gary: Another experiment. Only app is Safari. No other windows are open. Open 3-4 windows in Safari. They are all in the same "app/window set". Command-Backtick a few times. Eventually it locks up. You are in limbo. Further Command-Backticks do nother.
I am convinced that Apple has a special division whose sole function it is to confuse Mac users. They get something perfect, then along comes an "upgrade", and it drives us CRAZY.
Stage Manager is absolutely worthless to me. I use F3 to see open windows. Ditto Free Form. By your own admission, it's not as good as some other apps (I tossed my notes so cannot give you specifics) I've had Macs for 20 years(!), and it gets more and more difficult with each upgrade.
I really enjoyed watching your video on Stage Manager (for the second time). Is there any way of saving "asset groups" so that you don't have to reconfigure the screen each time you turn the Mac on?
Keep up the great work.
Doug: You can't save app sets. But if you need to reboot for some reason, things should return to as they were before. In System Settings, Desktop & Dock, do you maybe have Close Windows When Quitting An Application turned on? Also, when you do a restart or shut down for whatever reason, there is a checkbox for Reopen Windows When Logging Back in. Have that turned on or obviously you are restarting without any app windows open so you wouldn't see anything in Stage Manager. Also, note that restarting or shutting down your Mac usually isn't necessary. See https://macmost.com/a-beginners-guide-to-whether-to-shut-down-or-sleep-your-mac.html
Gary, I have tried Stage Manager previously but gave up. I am giving it another try having reviewed your 2 Ventura videos. I want to drag a file from Desktop into Finder. Impossible! Unless I am doing something wrong. I can achieve this only by switching off Stage Manager. I find on a Mac, the constant swapping of windows is so distracting and I will probably abandon SM again. I have tried on iPad and I think it works there for me. Have you thought about an iPad version of your SM video?
Rob: Sounds like Stage Manager is not for you. Dragging a file from your Desktop to a Finder window is just: drag it to the left side and let the Stage Manager App Sets appear. Continue to drag it over the App Set with the Finder window and wait for it to activate. Then complete the drag by moving it into the Finder window.

Manage Safari and Opera through either SCCM or Intune
I just wanted to know what are the possibilities of manage below settings on Safari and Opera through SCCM and Intune. we are using SCCM for our on-prem PCs and Intune for Internet based PCs.
-Password Manager -Auto fill -Browser Synchronization
PS: I strongly hope we can manage Chrome, Firefox, IE and Edge through SCCM and Intune since there are supporting ADMX.
Thanks in Advance Dilan

@Dilan Nanayakkara Thanks for posting in our Q&A. For our questions, I have done lots of research. We can manage Safari browser settings by creating an iOS/iPadOS device restrictions configuration profile with Intune. Note that the system requirements starting with iOS/iPadOS 13.0 and supervised devices. Please refer to the following link for details： https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/configuration/device-restrictions-ios#settings-apply-to-automated-device-enrollment-supervised-2
For management of other browsers, it is better to create device configuration profile and use OMA-URI settings. Take Firefox browser as an example here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/managing-firefox-intune Note: It is none-official link, just for reference. Hope it can help and if there is anything update,please feel free to let us know.

Pocono Township commissioners name new police chief, pending formal offer
A new Pocono Township police chief has been appointed, pending a formal contract.
At its Feb. 5 meeting, the Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to recommend current Detective Sgt. James Wagner as the new chief of the township’s police department.
President of the Board Richard Wielebinski made the motion, which was seconded by Natasha Leap.
Township Manager Taylor Muñoz clarified with Solicitor Leo DeVito regarding the process of hiring the new police chief.
“So, Leo, there’s a two-part process for the appointment of police chief, correct?” asked Muñoz. “First it’s a motion to extend a conditional offer, followed by the formalizing of the contract and a vote on that at a future date.”
DeVito confirmed the process outlined by Muñoz.
Wagner currently holds the positions of sergeant of detectives and officer in charge at Pocono Township Police Department.
Wagner's pending promotion follows former Chief Shawn Goucher's brief tenure in the position from July to December 2023.
The Pocono Record has filed a public records request regarding Goucher with the township. Public information must be provided within five business days under the Pennsylvania Right-to-Know Law unless an extension is requested. The township has requested a 30-day extension.

Three months after she was tapped to step into the role on a temporary basis, Anita D. Gutierrez is now Pomona’s top executive.
The Pomona City Council appointed Gutierrez, the first Latina to serve as Pomona city manager, with a unanimous vote Monday, Feb. 5.
Gutierrez, who has worked for the city for over five years in various positions, began her new role Tuesday. Her contract will renew automatically every two years, under terms of her appointment.
The appointment comes after Gutierrez stepped into the role of acting city manager nearly three months ago following a leave of absence and then the seemingly abrupt departure of the previous city manager, James Makshanoff .
At their meeting Monday, some council members shared gratitude for Gutierrez filling a “void” left after Makshanoff parted ways with the city. Council members said she has the necessary professional and personal skills for the position.
“You have proven yourself as a community person and someone who doesn’t just want to stay in the office but wants to get out into the community, and people notice that,” Councilmember Elizabeth Ontiveros-Cole told Gutierrez during the meeting.
“It is critical in a city manager that they have the skill sets that bring people together and to build a team of people. (Gutierrez) is not perfect. No one is. She is excellent,” Pomona Mayor Tim Sandoval said. “She’s excellent at figuring out what she knows and what she doesn’t and building the team that she’s going to need to help move the city forward.”
In addition to the support voiced by council members, community members and business owners praised Gutierrez’s professionalism while in the city’s planning department.
“The chamber has worked closely with the city for many years, and Anita Gutierrez has been an excellent partner in working with the business centers and basically looking out for the best interests of the city at large,” said Neff Cortez, Pomona Chamber of Commerce board chairperson.
Some in the audience Monday, however, expressed doubt and displeasure with the council’s appointment of Gutierrez.
“Decisions like this feed cynicism and discourage civic participation. A refusal to engage the community in this decision will reverberate for years to come,” Guillermo Gonzales said during public comment. “It will be used as the basis for future bad decisions. And in fact, today you are creating a precedent that will further undermine and erode confidence in City Hall.”
Another speaker, Larry Ortega, questioned the $295,000 salary approved for Gutierrez and why that was only $15,000 less than the Los Angeles city administrator’s salary.
“Mr. Mayor, this appears to be another giveaway and we’re going to be locking ourselves into another contract that once again sets us up for a massive giveaway like the one we just got out of with the last city manager, $600,000 to go away,” Ortega said.
As part of its separation agreement with Makshanoff, the city will pay the former city manager $604,975 in severance over several installments, according to documents reviewed by this news organization.
Some speakers also expressed concerns about why Gutierrez needs a coach paid for by the city during her first year as city manager.
“That’s not so unusual,” Councilmember Steve Lustro explained, addressing questions about the coach. “The International City Managers Association provides that type of assistance and service not only to new city managers but to experienced city managers that may be having issues that they’re dealing with in their communities.”
After the council voted unanimously to appoint Gutierrez, she shared her gratitude in a brief statement, saying she is appreciative of the opportunity and looks forward to continuing her service in Pomona.
“I thank the staff for working with me and their collaboration these last three months, which has been particularly challenging for all,” Gutierrez said.

- Webquestsearch/webquestsearchdaemon? So I noticed I was getting a lot of pop ups and suspicious “__ wants to access safari” things on my Mac, so I checked activity manager to see if I could do anything to fix it. I’m well aware that there are many malwares or whatever with “search” in them, so I specifically filtered for terms with “search”. When I did so, I found several things- -SearchUp -WebQuestSearchDaemon -WebQuestSearch -searchpartyd I’ve head of WebQuestSearch being a pop up malware, but when I looked at its parent processes, I found it came from launchd and kernel_task. As far as I’m aware, kernel_task of a legitimate process that shouldn’t be deleted, so I was wondering if I should actually delete them or not. Could someone help me on this? 399 6
- GlobalAdviseSearch Safari has been hanging up and in trying to figure out why I came across a process running under root, GlobalAdviseSearch. It seems to be hogging all the bandwidth. I can kill the process, and Safari works for a while, sometimes an hour or so, then slows and stops. I kill the process again and things work for a while. I can't find any reference to this process anywhere. Just upgraded to Mojave on an old Macbook Air. Any help out there? 969 1
- Safari on my Mac, has been affected by the Search Marquis malware. How can I get rid of it? Safari on my Mac, has been affected by the Search Marquis malware. I’ve watched a few videos on YouTube, about trying to get rid of it, but they seem to be presented by guys trying to sell different versions of software. (E.g. CleanMyMac X), then when I read the comments below the videos, some people are commenting that the software doesn’t get rid of Search Marquis. I’ve tried the manual method described in the videos…. Emptied Caches; Cleared all Cookies; Cleared all History…. I can’t find anything in Library that looks suspicious, and nothing at all in Extensions. The final step says to open Activity Monitor, and Stop any startup activities that look suspicious, but doesn’t give any examples, so it’s no help whatsoever. Does anyone know how to get rid of this malware from a Mac? 711 19
