Yes, RAM size increases for each reload. The following are the RAM sizes in MBs
21.88 - when launching Webkit (Safari)
31.18 - when loading www.google.com/ig
39.00 - first reload
42.68 - second reload
49.00 - third reload

The webkit build is taken from http://nightly.webkit.org
Webkit nightly build dated Nov 29
Safari Version 2.0.3 (417.9.2)

Reproduction step:
Launch Activity Monitor to see the RAM size
Launch the Webkit icon (Safari browser)
Load www.google.com/ig
Reload the page as many times as needed

We are not sure whether this is a leak but webkit is consuming more RAM when
reloading the page everytime and hence performance would be deteriorated.
