Safari memory leak? - Mac Applications & Software

OK... so I think Safari has a memory leak that eventually affects other applications. I can't prove this (I'm no engineer).... but the more new windows created in Safari, the slower the connection and the slower the machine operates. If I reboot, all is well.... and is 110% fine until I start Safari again. Thoughts? ~Jeff -- Download the new AppleSpec Database (r.1/03) www.applespec.com...

    Default Safari memory leak?

    OK... so I think Safari has a memory leak that eventually affects other
    applications. I can't prove this (I'm no engineer).... but the more new
    windows created in Safari, the slower the connection and the slower the
    machine operates.

    If I reboot, all is well.... and is 110% fine until I start Safari again.

    Thoughts?

    Why speculate? Open up the top utility in a terminal window and
    you can see what memory is available and in use.

    How do you characterize the above behavior as a 'memory leak'? Are you
    using 'top' in a Terminal window to watch the memory utilization or the
    Process Viewer? Virtual memory systems deal with memory allocation very
    differently than Classic MacOS 9. It might be that it's unable to
    handle all the windows very well and that they way they're doing it
    doesn't scale to larger numbers of windows.

    What happens if you just quit Safari and restart it? Rebooting is
    really not necessary on a real OS.
