I also hope this fixes my auto-dimming "feature" that never quite turns off. Also, I hope it fixes my laptop's inability to sleep (automatically due to energy saver settings) while on AC power. It does this whether on my normal account or on a virgin account with no startup items or programs running. It's very annoying.

It will be a big step from refined Tiger to buggy Leopard...

I don't know why people think that. Leopard is way more refined than Tiger. Any time I have to boot into Tiger for something, it always feels great to go back to Leopard and that's just the latest beta. I'll jump into 10.5 and never look back. People think they're sooo smart by waiting for 10.5.2 or whatever but all they'll be doing is missing out.

I sure hope they fix Safari's insane memory usage... :)

That would be nice, wouldn't it? I leave my Safari open for probably a week at a time and I think it's GMail that really uses up the memory! So, perhaps that is not a fault of Safari at all.

Can anyone give feedback on Safari 3.0's memory usage? Is it smaller than 2.0?

I've been corresponding with Apple engineering via the ADC bug reports. They are still oblivious to the airport issues with 3rd party routers, despite the latest airport updates. Guess the odds of this being fixed are slim to none...Bleh

Third party routers my a$$!!! I'm getting drops every 15-30 minutes via an Airport Extreme on my MacBook ever since 10.4.10

I wonder if that's true or if they're still just lying about it so that people don't think it's a widespread issue.

I have no idea why they don't just rollback to 10.4.9 Airport drivers. I mean really, whatever "enhancement" they added in the 10.4.10 drivers can't be THAT important because nobody even knows what it is.

They're trying to make a "compatibility release" of Tiger, similar to 10.3.9 for Panther. Most current apps work with the latest Panther for example but may be broken on 10.3.4 which was the most stable Panther. Same way, 10.4.8 is the most stable Tiger but they have to release a future-proof version, at least 10.4.11 and more if that's not stable enough.

At least pro audio apps are struggling with the latest two Tiger releases so there's definetely something going on under the hood.

I hope the fix the USB HD no read problem unless connected to hub. I am waiting for this patch to avoid back rolling Mac os to 10.4.9, good thing I found a time consuming way to back up my stuff from 26 hours to 2 hours.

Significantly better, in general. There's still some issues (for example, Flash video streams will eat ram like nothing else, and not give it back), but it's a noticeable improvement.

Saturday evening would be a good day to release it. Have they ever released 10.x.x on a weekend though?

neither GMail nor Safari specific

That would be nice, wouldn't it? I leave my Safari open for probably a week at a time and I think it's GMail that really uses up the memory! So, perhaps that is not a fault of Safari at all.

Can anyone give feedback on Safari 3.0's memory usage? Is it smaller than 2.0?

It seems to be browsers in general IMO, at least for Safari and Firefox. The longer you leave a session on and the more you browse both real and virtual memory just keep climbing relentlessly, and never give back memory when you close tabs (nor directly seem to add it immediately when you open one??).

In FF's case it happens equally on my Mac and Win.

Interestingly, I just upgraded my iBook Ram from 1 to 1.5 GB, as I thought things would speed up because of fewer calls to virtual RAM, but instead, FF is now using more than double the V-Ram and only "modestly" more RAM, but both browsers seem to grab mem of both kinds and never let it go until quit (and for FF Win, sometimes until reboot).

Most interestingly, why would anyone who doesn't wear SJ jammies to bed use GMail on Safari where many of its features are missing??

My most hated OS X bug ever. I can't believe Apple hasn't fixed it yet considering how long it's been around. $!@#&*!
