    Is this ever going to get fixed? I know it is related to an extent to extensions like adblock and whatnot, but even when I disable it, it appears to be using a fair amount.

    I'm running a macbook pro 5,1 2.4ghz c2d 6gigs ram, 7200rpm 500gig hd

    At least the web content process is terminated automatically a short while after you've closed all of your Safari windows.

    Chrome seems to use a fraction of what Safari uses...

    edit: I guess it looks like Chrome divides it up into a bunch of different processes. Not sure which is more efficient but I'm still fairly sure it's Chrome
