    Watching Safari in Activity Monitor, I notice the longer it runs the
    bigger it gets. Is this "normal", in that it is caching sites or
    something, or is it a memory leak?

    it has a huge memory leak. it is most noticable with graphics
    intensive websites.

    I've had Safari crashing a lot lately only on Weather Channel sites
    which are usually pretty heavy on graphics. Wonder if it's related?

  4. Check out the darwin website for the details of this. Apparently, they
    closed over 4000 leaks in the last week.


    I suspect it will be folded into a Safari release fairly soon.
