Safari 5 High Memory Usage Fixed?

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 isSafari Logo that it seems that this update has fixed the high memory usage, hurray!! ┬áSo 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.

Setup OpenDNS In Mac OS X

There are several reasons you might want to use OpenDNS, the biggest two I use it is for speed and security, here I will show you how you can set it up on your Mac:

  1. Open system┬ápreferences and click “Network”
  2. 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”
  3. Once in advanced click the “DNS” tab
  4. Finally, add the following IP,s: 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220

Safari 5 High Memory Usage

Hello World!
Safari Logo

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.


VLC Mac, Finally 64-Bit!!

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!!
