Are you guys sure Safari leaks? I never use Safari, I use Camino, but I also own Omniweb and it sucks up ram too... but I always figured that was because it goes out and checks all your bookmarked sites for updates, and maybe it caches them as it goes?

Yes - http://webkit.opendarwin.org/blog/?p=24

Does anyone know if the leak fixes are included in the 10.4.3 build? And if so, should we expect an updated Safari for Panther as well? (I surely hope so given 4000+ leaks - and yes, I can feel them!)

Nothing new appears broken over here.

Safari still seems to leak though; closed all safari windows and tabs except OSNEWS, cleared caches, and safari is gobbling 88MB of real memory and 214MB of virtual memory.

It's been a lot worse though, sometimes Safari gets so bogged down that browsing on the windows box via VNC is better.

Oh WOW! I'd be replacing Apple's core with the opendarwin webkit.
