If you have an older generation iPhone, such as iPhone 3G or 3GS. You may notice, after 2-3 years of usage, that the OS runs sluggish and may even crash. Its well known that improvements and upgrades to the OS may allocate more memory, and having a nice little multitasking tool is nice. But its going to eat up memory fast.
Core Monitor (Free) is a nice little application for iPhone that lets you visualize current memory usage. As well as monitor:
- Remaining Battery (Roughly)
- Disk Usage
- CPU Load
- Running Processes
- Device Information (Slightly buggy in my experience)

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.
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.
