I started getting low ram warnings to close files. This webkit2webprocess.exe program is a RAM eater. When I start my Safari browser this program starts to run and literally eats ram till other programs crash. It came bundled with the latest Safari download.

@Tanja: What does the error message say related to webkit2webprocess.exe?

webkit2webprocess.exe comes with the Safari browser. It might help to update to the latest version of Safari.

Did that solve the problem?

Can webkit2webprocess.exe be removed and more importantly, should it be removed? Like others, I've noticed it's using close to 85,000k and seems to slow down the loading of additional tabs. Any suggestions?

If removed, Apple's software will probably not work correctly.
