On MacOS X memory leaks have been reduced, but the amount of memory leaked is still far too high IMHO. Withing 20 minutes of surfing memory usage can be as high as 82MB+. I reported this on the memory tracking Bug 246245 at Bugzilla.

Other than the memory leak issue on the Mac this looks like a good release (so far).
