Develop a memory efficient version of the macOS app

Develop a memory efficient version of the macOS app

Andrew D.4
Helpful | Level 5

The Dropbox app on Mac now uses vast amounts of ram. Somehow even when I'm not actively using Dropbox, it regularly uses over 500mb of my computer's memory. This is more than Safari (with many tabs open) Figma, and Slack. Come on Dropbox, you can do better than this!
