Right here in the screen capture:
If the fan on my MacBook Pro starts kicking in... or if it gets slow... or if I look at the CPU monitor and see it jacked to near 100%... all I have to do is open my Activity Monitor and...
99% of the time it's an issue with Flash!
Now, granted, it's probably not "Flash", per se, but rather "a website that isn't using Flash properly". Or "a website that has a poorly written Flash app."
But that's perhaps the point... so many websites out there have poorly written Flash apps!
The good news is - and THE reason I use Google Chrome - is that I simply kill off that process and my Mac goes back to being snappy again. Still, it's annoying.
How about you? If you're on a Mac do you find Flash sites jack up your CPU?
