high fan speed on MBA

Hi all
My MBA fan speed seems to be running pretty loud that I can hear it, even when I am not even watching any videos etc, and just doing basic surfing. Any advice on this?

thanks

Use Activity Monitor to find out which process is running wild (sort the CPU column). If it is WebProcess, curse the guy who wrote that and restart Safari. If it is something else, zap that (click it and click "Quit Process").
