    I use Safari, but I also use FF for certain sites, and if I leave it on for too long, my MB fans start whirring up and FF starts taking up %50 of my memory. What's up with that?

    Firefox beta has been working great for me... Not sure what firefox version you're using. Safari is horrible with its memory leak. Firefox is much better IMO

    Deviantart.com I usually keep it open and after it stays on for while it just eats it up. So then I have to Quit and relaunch FF and it stays good for awhile.
