I have a single Safari tab open, and a subprocess called Safari Web Content is taking 1.5GB of ram. 


I don't think there is any flash or anything on the page:


Why does Safari need so much memory?  My Macbook only has 2GB in total, so everything is crawling.  Is this a bug, or by design?  I really like Safari and I don't want to have to switch to Chromium, but if Safari doesn't work well on 2GB machines, I guess I have no choice
