    Hi all, I think safari has a habit eats memory. I did a few routine tasks with safari, nothing special, opened a few web pages, non of them contain videos. Then I closed up all windows, checked the sources used, here is what it showed in Activity Monitor.[​IMG]

    Unless you're running low on HD space that doesn't seem worrying at all... You know there's a BIG difference between real and virtual memory, right?

    BTW: Did some (or all) of the Safari pages contain flash (or other interactive) contents, like flash ads or java/flash games?

    EDit: But, yes, I also think Safari is a bloated memory hog... that's one of the reasons why I use Firefox... ;) :D

    Safari is a memory hog, its known, but to be fair all browsers will eventually start hogging memory up when you have many tabs/windows open.....

    Give Camino a try...
