Need a browser which doesn't leak memory

Does anyone know a good browser that doesn't leak memory and end up consuming over 300MB of ram?
I've given up on IE when going through ebay searches, firefox was just as bad andit now seems like seamonkey has followed the course too.
Am I ever going to stumble onto a browser which doesn't leak memory badly?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

How do you know that these browsers leak?
They may be just holding large allocations of virtual memory - ready for caching of your next web page.

Seamonkey is the same browser as Firefox from Mozilla - it also has the email and html editor included - as per the old Netscape - which is where FF came from too.
Another good fast browser is Opera http://www.opera.com/download/
