Sonoma has by far been the most unstable OS I've had in years. Apps will just constantly freeze when I go up to the menu bar to select on something. Really ridiculous, I hope this update fixes the issue.
Been using the public beta since it was first available and it has been absolutely stable for me

How much RAM do you have, and on which Mac? Safari/Sonoma on my M2 MBP with lots of RAM has been totally stable. I have left multiple Safari (currently 17.1) pages with scores of a wide variety of tabs open for weeks w/o a hiccup under 96 GB RAM. Activity monitor shows my overall use (includes multiple other apps, and images work) typically accessing ~50 GB RAM.

We have all along expected RAM demands to increase over time. <as always>

Edit: Always in the past I rebooted every day or two for stability, just out of principle. With the M2, Sonoma and 96 GB RAM I have evolved into rebooting maybe once a month, just out of principle. Sonoma has been a very solid OS in my experience, and I have experienced every Mac OS - - except the ones I skipped.

Open apps: Filemaker, Safari, Mail, Pages, Affinity, Photos. Displayed on three 4K displays plus the MBP display.

He might have been on a Mac with 4 GB RAM.. i dont think anyone told him 4 GB is not the same as 8 GB. Its only 8 GB thats the same as 16 GB. But 16 GB is only similar to 16 GB. 4 GB is actually the same as 2 GB on PC :/

But if you Da Vinci Resolve with only 128 GB you're gonna run into problems. I recommend 64 GB in that case as its the same as 256 GB, apparently.
