Mac OS X

When users attempt to launch a 32-bit app in 10.13.4, it will still launch, but it will do so with a warning message notifying the user that the app will eventually not be compatible with the operating system unless it is updated. This follows the same approach that Apple took with iOS, which completed its sunset of 32-bit app support with iOS 11 last fall.

This is good. I would prefer other companies, too, take a more aggressive approach towards deprecating outdated technology in consumer technology.

High memory consumption is due to aggressive caching strategies to get you faster reload times. Many people visit the same sites over the day, and to improve load times it is reasonable to cache whatever is possible and keep it in memory. If you load a web page that is 40MBs, the next time you visit, it can load as little as 1MB, and no, it won't use hdd cache when you have enough ram available.
