I noticed something the other day about Safari 5, There apparently is a new update available! 5.0.1 to be exact. And the best part is that it seems that this update has fixed the high memory usage, hurray!! So if you are having trouble with high memory usage in Safari 5, just update it! I’m not making any promises though, this is what I have experienced, your result might be different. Anyway, it’s nice to see that my favorite browser on Mac is finally working as it should again.
- Open system preferences and click “Network”
- Select your network interface and then click on “Advanced”. If you don’t know what network interface you are using, then it’s the one with a green circle next to it, in my case “AirPort”
- Once in advanced click the “DNS” tab
- Finally, add the following IP,s: 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124
As you probably know, the new Safari 5 has been released, and of course you have upgraded like i have. However I have noticed something really strange about that wasn’t in Safari 4 or 3, It can sometimes hang up, for quite a while. So I decided to check the Macintosh process manager to see if it was hoging the CPU, that’s what i thought, but no, IT HAD TAKEN UP FREAKIN’ 2.5 GB OF MEMORY!!
I really hope Apple will fix this bug or whatever it’s called, cause i really like Safari, it’s the only Mac web browser that I know of that runs 64-bit and it’s really fast to, fast browsing, fast booting.
I noticed something a while ago when I was just about to steam some media content with VLC, a window pops up in my face about some update, and i said, ok, nothing special, updates come all the time. So i downloaded it and installed it as i always do, but then i got curious, does it run on 64-bit? The last version didn’t, so i checked the Mac process manager, and guess what, it’s 64-bit. FINALLY!!
One night, when I was just about to go to bed, i closed down my MacBook, went to the bathroom, and when i came back, there was a lolcat sitting on my MacBook!! No, not really, it was just my kitty who decided that i would be a good idea to sit on solid ground rather than a bulky bed :)
