This isn't really an issue i think. Basically the idea should be to speed up 
ephy and mozilla load time as much as possible. Memory management is the 
responsibility of the OS not the user imo. Also once mozilla and hence 
epiphany move to the gre this will be even less of an issue.

I think this should probably be done in the browser if done at all. Having a 
popup to disable popups is slightly odd too :P

I actually tink applets really are a sign of less system integration. 
Statust tray icons are a bit better though.
