A long time ago I noticed a memory leak, albeit a small one in Safari. Later I discovered it was a known problem, but it wasn't fixed for several versions thereafter. Maybe Apple thought it was so small that it didn't merit attention. 

By the time they fixed it I had given up and went with Firefox.
