HowTo: Save iPhone Memory By Forcing Safari To Stop Running In The Background

Luckily somebody thought about this and it works great. All you need to do is to load cydia , add this source: cydia.iphoneil.net and than search/install SafariQuitter .Once SafariQuitter is installed you will respring your iPhone/iTouch and you are good to go.

I see a major increase in the amount of free RAM i have since i start using this tweak. Before i usually had 18-25 MB of free RAM now i constantly have 40MB of free RAM.
