Does anyone know if AdBlock for Safari suffers from a memory leak when running Mountain Lion? I know it was an issue with Lion, but I can't find any conclusive information whether or not it's still an issue on ML.

AdBlock for Safari was updated fairly recently, I believe, and the problem seems to be finally gone. I've been using it in Safari 6 for several weeks now and the memory usage has been completely normal.

About damn time!

Is that with the "Speed up AdBlock using an experimental feature in Safari" enabled or disabled? I ran into problems awhile back with it enabled and have had it disabled ever since.

I hadn't actually noticed that feature. It's been off the whole time for me.

Not gone, here. Problem's quite severe.
