Not me but it probably depends on what "heavy browsing" means to you.

Are you running flash video's or youtube stuff? That makes an mac work pretty hard.

When you say "hot" how hot is your system getting? Things like istat can show you actual temperatures.

My system is running about 130 degrees fahrenheit right now.

The warmer a mac gets the more aggressively the system will run the fans.

If you're running flash/java applets on the web it could heat up quite a bit, probably nothing to worry about though

I've been watching flash videos for over an hour now and the temp is 62C with the fans going at 2000rpm.

Am jealous - that would crank my 2010 Air up to 70-80 very quickly...

Not really. Max: about 70-80 degrees Celcius. The fans generally never exceed 2000 RPM though.

My MBA got 90 to 95 with 63xx rpm sometimes when using flash, HD movies, etc...:D

The only time I hear my fan kick on is when I'm using flash or watch HD content.
