I'm currently on my 30-day free trial of Viscosity as a replacement for Tunnelblick on my Mac. I've noticed that on a fresh reboot Viscosity is the application using the highest amount of memory on my computer - even higher than Finder - at 57MB. This is compared to the 15MB occupied by Tunnelblick. I like the idea of using a paid app to support developers and in return receive frequent updates and support, but I dislike even more the propensity of Mac OS X helper/background applications to consume > 50 MB of memory. It's not uncommon to find users with up to 20 such applications running on login, which would consume a gigabyte of memory in total if they were all this large.
Is this something you can look into and is there any chance Viscosity's memory footprint could be reduced?
Thank you for your time.
