I'm noticing since I did the 10.6.3 update for OSx that Safari+Flash is not leaking as badly and my memory is staying quite a bit more clean ... anyone else seeing similar? I don't think I've changed my test conditions...

Yes, it seems to be better.  I've gone more than a day without being forced to quit a relaunch Safari, something I've been having to do 2-3x per day to deal with the memory leakage.

It had gotten so bad that I had to run Activity Monitor in a corner of my screen all the time, just so I could keep an eye on the memory situation.  Completely ridiculous and inexcusable, in my opinion -- perhaps it's partly Adobe's fault, but it seems to me there's something wrong with Safari if it allows a plug-in to grow and grow and grow....

Anyway, I think it's much improved but I also haven't been opening many Flash pages in the past couple of days, so that may have an impact too.

Hmm, I haven't noticed anything different. How much memory you guys have? I have 6GB right now installed and haven't noticed a thing. But if the situation is as bad as you describe, this update could benefit my 2GB Macbook greatly.

I have 10G, and I'd regularly come to my machine in the morning, having left Safari open, with *all* memory having been "allocated but not in use" which, according to the boneheads that think they know sh!t on the Apple community forums meant that it was just previously used and being hung on to for caching, but would be freed up when necessary.

It's BS. Since the change I've got about 50% of my memory free all the time again, and it's not getting filled up ... and things are running much more quickly.
