Memory out of control? Tame it with MemoryTamer!

MemoryTamer is an automatic memory-freeing app that runs in your menu bar. It supports notifications with both Growl and Notification Center (on supported versions of OS X), and also lets you free memory whenever you want with the "Free memory now" menu item.

On OS X 10.9, it gets even better! By tapping into a system function introduced in OS X 10.9, MemoryTamer is able to automatically free your memory without slowing down your computer.

You can find the code and more info on the GitHub page
