comment How to disable Mac OS X from using swap when there still is “Inactive” memory?
What you're seeing is the system caching files in memory. I agree that there is a problem, in that the cache never seems to be purged... but the caching itself (and growth of inactive memory as a consequence) is a sane and sometimes useful performance feature.

@Motin, I've used FreeMemory for months, and it does not do that, at least in my experience. If I had to educated guess (based on what I've seen in Activity Monitor), the difference is that FM consumes "active" memory first, which is prioritized over disk caches. It "frees" other memory by being higher in priority, then it frees its own memory. I've never seen it add to swap significantly (maybe a small amount that's allocated while it's consuming).

comment Should I use Safari on Windows?
Safari certainly has web standards support well beyond IE on most metrics, (and somewhat beyond Firefox on some metrics).

This is Safari 4 on XP: greginthedesert.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/… Note, though, that the cap is of the beta, and top tabs were removed in the final version (sadly).

DrJokepu, that's a screenshot of Safari 3 for Windows, despite the file name.
