    when i just opened it up there is only 20-30Mb, after a while, it went to around 50-60MB at least, sometimes 70-80MB, is that normal?

    Delete your cache and it will go down, but yeah, it's normal.

    Have you got lots of tabs open? Are they running complicated Java/Flash processes? How much real memory do you have installed? :)

    80MB can be normal for Safari, in some circumstances.

    Have you deleted the cache like iGary said?

    I wouldn't worry about it too much, unless you're getting beach balls. OSX's RAM management system is pretty sophisticated and confusing, but it works. It's just that it usually says it's using seemingly high chunks of it.

    thx , i have cleared the cache as igary told me, and with only 1 tab open, the ram seems to stay about 30-40Mb, and so far i have not seen any beachball at all, so i suppose it is a sign of OK
    :p
    cheers
