[Blink] Blink 0.19.1 consumes relative much CPU (22x) and physical RAM (9x) in comparison to Telephone 0.14.3

The results of Activity Monitor (while both Blink and Telephone applications are idle, and have been running for multiple hours) are:

Resource	Blink 0.19.1	Telephone 0.14.3	Factor	
--------------- --------------- ------------------      -------
%CPU		9.6-10.7%	0.4-0.5%		22.5x
Phys.memory	101.6 MB	11.5 MB			8.8x	
--------------- --------------- ------------------      -------

Hopefully the developers find some space in their roadmap to reduce CPU and memory consumed by a running Blink application.

Kind regards,

My eye caught attention to this because:
A. I was more closely monitoring RAM and CPU consumption of user window processes, due to a memory leak in Firefox+Firebug+Mobotix Live view.
B. While being in the transition from Telephone 0.14.3 (due to lack of development and lower audio quality of calls) to Blink, I am running both app simultaneous.
C. Blink consumed more CPU resource than an actively running Firefox 3.6.6 with 10+ extensions enabled
