comment Safari is using too much RAM. How can I reduce its memory footprint?
@glenstorey: I agree with Josh, as I've made the same experience: at least as soon as my available physical RAM goes down to <100 MB (of 3 GB in total) with OS 10.6.8, this has a massive impact on my computing experience: spinning beach ball for a long time, etc. ... And Safari seems to be THE application that really needs lots of RAM, especially for flash

comment Safari makes my MacBook incredibly slow - what to do?
in fact, after uninstalling the old ClickToPlugin 2.5.4, I did not have any extreme uses of RAM by Safari any more... I had installed the current ClickToPlugin 2.9.2, but have not activated it at the moment.

comment How to find out which Safari tab is using massive memory?
I'm using OS 10.6.8 - are you sure that I can list the memory consumption of single safari tabs there also?

comment Safari makes my MacBook incredibly slow - what to do?
thanks, that looks interesting - however I can not find those settings in Safari 5.1.10. However I'm already using the ClickToPlugin 2.5.4 which should do something similar...

comment How can I figure out which tab in Safari is using CPU?
did you find a solution for yourself in the meantime? I'm having the same problem, but mainly for excessive use of RAM which seems to be triggered by some few tabs: apple.stackexchange.com/q/125290/5887

comment Safari makes my MacBook incredibly slow - what to do?
more memory seems technically impossible - is there another way to make the old system faster (e. g. a fast SSD drive for speeding up virtual memory?) Is there any hope that OS 10.7 could have better overall system performance with the given hardware?
