    Flash player is a CPU hog!?!
    I've been noticing that when I'm watching youtube or hulu my computer gets warm about 150F and the fans go full blast. I looked at the activity monitor and I found the culprit... flash player, its taking up 80-90% while safari takes about 3% Is there a way to remedy the cpu usage of the flash player? Has anyone had this problem?
