    My guess is that it's the flash (ads or other contents) that does it. Even with the the latest flash plugins those things tend to be really CPU hogs.

    Maybe one day Adobe will get those plugins right... </sigh>

    Mapquest is one that comes to mind that did that to my PoweBook, the site was unusable because of it. When I got my MacBook, sites that used to run my CPU to 100% are no longer a problem.
    What browser are you using ? , Safari seems to be more prone to this.

    My fans are dead quiet, CPU at 1%. I'm using Safari.

    It's a problem with flash-player. I have it all the time on sites that use Flash, but it doesn't always happen.

    It's one of the more annoying things about my MBP. I shouldn't have my fans at full-speed while browsing the web.
