    Is there anyway that i could fix this prob with an extension? It's always clogging up after a few hours of surfing. I read bout the webkit thingie but really understand what it's saying.
    prehapys some1 can guide me??

    You aren't serious are you? The memory leaks (such that they are) are deep in the core of WebKit. You can't fix them without replacing WebKit in it's entirety. Apple are working on it. The nightly builds of WebKit show some improvement.

    Use Firefox or Camino. That will fixit.

    Yeah it sucks that Safari does that because it really is a good browser.

    Well if you're serious, yes you can download the WebKit source, amend it with XCode and submit your patch to the WebKit open-source project who will in-turn review and land it.

    Or were you just looking for a preferences checkbox to tick?
