           Summary: [GTK] Remove subresource leaks from WebKit1 and
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: mrobinson at webkit.org

Both WebKit1 and WebKit2 have an API in which you can get the subresources of a page. To do this WebKit keeps a list of all subresources. There are many pages that are just continuous JSON requests and no full-page reloads. This means that all resources will leak (with their data) until memory is filled up.

We cannot remove the WebKit1 API, but perhaps we can observe the destruction of the resource. For WebKit2, it's probably better that we remove this API completely.
