See open URLs per Safari Web Content instance in Activity Monitor System 10.9
I believe this is new to Mavericks: Here's an easy way to identify the windows in Safari that are currently using resources.

Open Activity Monitor, and then hover over a Safari Web Content item in the window. That will display the open URL(s) belonging to that instance. This makes it easy to identify the window in Safari that is using up your CPU.

Lex adds: This works as described, and is great.

This is the best Mavericks tip yet. Not as good as Chrome's activity monitor, but I'll take it…

Edit: (Perhaps off topic) I thought each instance of Safari Web Content was supposed to be one page, but I have several that are multiple—some are two pages, some three.

I can't get this to work reliably -- hovering over some Safari Web Content items works sometimes, and others don't want to show the site at a all. Frustrating.

I can't get this to work at all. In Activity Monitor, I see lots of messsages like

QTKitServer-(635) Safari Web Content (Not Responding)

and I'd like to identify which web page is hung up and not responding. But I get nothing when I hover over that line in Activity Monitor. Not that it's so easy to even hover. When sorted by Name, you occasionally have processes that pop up above it, so what you're hovering over will shift down the list and reposition itself out from under your cursor. I've tried clicking to select then hover, and unselected hover. Nothing. You can doubleclick and an info page comes up, which would be the logical place to put the source URL. But nothing.
