What is WebProcess and why do it and mds eat up most of my active RAM on my 2008 white MacBook running 10.6?

I know that mds is the Spotlight index, and I've seen numerous documented cases of it running wild. But what is WebProcess? I've never seen it before and can't seem to find references online. Both of these are running rampant and eating a total of 700 Mb RAM total (WebProcess alone munches over 500). The system hangs are a real buzzkill and I'd like some more experienced advice.
