Here is the output from "ps aux"(it got a little mangled):

noon 84594 19.8 44.7 1464752 937308 ?? U 6:46PM 51:20.66 /Applications/internet/ -psn_0_13708562

as you can see Safari is using 937,308 kb of memory, or 44.7% of my total. Is this a normal case or an exceptional case? Safari has recently been restarted 3 hours ago and it continually does this.

This is using 10.5.2 MacBook

Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.2 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2

Sorry, to reply to myself, but I failed to mention something: I also have AdBlock installed version 0.3.2.

Thank you
