    Just noticing the updated Flash Player on the new Snow Leopard update is taking about 660 MB of actual memory on my MBP.

    Has anyone noticed and is this normal?

    Looking in Activity Monitor too. I just rebooted and same thing. What's going on?

    Does it have anything to do with me upgrading my Flash Player before I upgraded Snow Leopard?

    Which process is Flash? My Safari process is taking 100 MB real memory playing a Hulu video. I toggled so all processes show but am not seeing a separate Flash process.

    Back to normal now...whew.

    That was weird. I forced quit Flash in Activity Monitor and turned it back on (actually went to a site with Flash and it turned on itself) and wala, it's not hogging memory anymore.

    Some things I just can't explain, but, all is well now. Thanks for pitching in. :)
