Hi all,
I recently took a look @ the activity monitor while trying to figure out why my MBP was so hot (that's another story though). I was amazed @ what I saw for the Safari process. It was eating up 400MB of RAM! Granted I had only put the machine into sleep mode overnight, then continued using it in the morning. But I have never before in my life seen a browser eat up that much memory. I didn't really take an impact, as I had 500MB of RAM free, but at the same time I find myself wondering why it was using so much of it.
QUOTE Thanks
