On HTTPS pages Safari shows a small padlock. (screen made with Safari 6.0.2) You can see this a little easier in these larger snaps - one of a site where the SSL certificate was not trusted implicitly (signed or otherwise trusted by your Mac) and another where the certificate was valid and signed up the chain by the Mac and shown in green.

As it turns out, you do this through the "View" menu, rather than through "Preferences": Close all tabs but one, so you only have one tab open In the "View" menu, click "Show Tab Bar" which will make the tab bar appear This preference will stick, even if you close and reopen Safari Simple, but not what I expected!

Specifically the browse button is disabled because there isn't a file browser (like Windows Explorer/Finder) on the iPhone. Most people don't notice that, because the iOS is designed around avoiding the need for a user interface to the iPhone's file system. For simplicity's sake file management is turned into a programing problem instead of a user problem. ...

Adobe Flash Player is supported in Lion (Chrome works by using its own copy of the plug-in that you can disable) and Safari uses the Plug-in installed in your personal libraries folder: ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ or in the system-wide libraries: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ Lion, however, doesn't ship with Flash player installed by default (I'm not ...

So it appears that Flash is still the main culprit - if you enable any flash in ClickToFlash it stays resident in memory. Following Gruber's advice on Daring Fireball, I've disabled Flash entirely on all browsers except Chrome and this seems to have helped immensely

The % CPU is relative to 1 core, so 726% is using almost 8 cores. Core is loosely defined, so 1 Hyper-Threaded, "virtual" core looks like 2 cores to Activity Monitor. What type of system do you have? If it is just 2 cores (which is seems to be) then nik's answer sounds correct. A late model 8-core system can look like 16 cores to Activity Monitor:
