Why is it so huge? 24/25MB just for a browser?
Firefox & Chrome is just 7MB and Opera is 5MB.
PS. Congratulations to me, I just posted my 100th post in winmatrix. LOL
There's nothing wrong with the browser's size. The great features it has makes it that big. You have to remember that Google Chrome and Firefox don't have the same features and compatibility as Safari and IE. They will always be light weight browsers. Safari 4, iTunes and Quicktime are very advanced applications and will always be big, but the right size.
I have no complaints when they work excellent.

Yeah so advanced hardly anyone uses them on PC, and they require advanced hardware too, like GTA IV made for next generation PCs

Everything else about Safari4 is excellent. Even the performance surprised me (excluding memory consumption)
It gobbles resources in Windows: With 14 tabs open, it ate over 400MB of RAM.
I wish Apple would stop being stubborn about the colors they use (GREY-ISH UI IS DULL FAIL).
What i'm saying is, Google Chrome has built it's name upon lightweight-speed, and a UI that just sit perfectly. Safari's UI just doesn't "sit" into their browser as well as Chrome does. I still will take chrome over Safari, mainly because i'm not too interested in browsing my history and bookmarks via CoverFlow's animated shit.
That said, I still like it. Getting it on my MacBook now!
okay, I take what I said back. Safari is (surprisingly) original, and is the only other browser that moved together with the web, other than Chrome. Good job Apple! Tabs are unclear though. At least, Safari's tabs are less clearer and obvious than chrome's. AND MEMORY USAGE IS A BICH
