Home Page uses up too much GPU
When I am on the MacRumors home page with Safari on my Macbook Pro it activates my nVidia discrete GPU. I know this is happening because I use the app gfxCardStatus which tells me whether my rMBP is using the integrated Intel GPU. This is a bad thing because it uses more battery juice.
It's a fairly recent development, it didn't used to happen but I'm sorry that I can't be more specific on a date. I don't know what element on the page is causing this but if anyone can advise on how to check I'm willing to try.

That's the strangest thread title I've ever seen :P
I've just loaded it up in Safari on my rMBP and it didn't activate the discreet gpu - the macrumors homepage is hardly 'beefy' by any means - it must be a rogue flash advert.

If anybody knows a solution, please let us know!
UPDATE: Use ClickToPlugin and on the General tab of the settings disable "Load plug-in if HTML5 conversion fails"
