Why is "Console" "Diagnostic and user messages" now dominated by Safari messages?


I have randomly used Console over the years for trouble shooting, and now find it to be virtually worthless.


Both "All Messages" and "Diagnostic and Usage Messages" are now dominated by messages from Safari.


I do have the "Develop" menu displayed so that I can periodically "Empty Caches" since that option is no longer available otherwise.

    And what might these messages be? A few examples, please, not hundreds.

    Those are normal log messages.

    Is anything wrong with Safari?  Is it failing to display pages properly?   Are you able to surf with it?  Does it crash?

    If it's working well, don't worry about it.  After several years, I no longer even open Console unless something's very wrong.   Notations there are not "errors."  They're notations.  That goes for the other messages you're seeing, as well.
