    In activity monitor, i notice there is "2606 Flash Player (Safari Internet plug-in)"

    it ocassionally takes up a huge percentage of my CPU usage? went up to 70% before.. i don't recall having that in leopard, is it something new in snow leopard? anyone noticing the same issue? thank you

    in SL, safari plugins are separate processes, so its hard to tell in leopard, where plugins are built in to the safari process

    Apple claims a plug in that crashes will not bring down Safari using this method. Also tells you what a fecking resource hog Flash is.

    so should i be worry about a 65-70% cpu usage for using safari running at 4tabs on macrumors?? isn't that taking too much cpu resources?

    you shouldnt worry

    I wouldnt worry but its a reality that the current Adobe flash plugin for the 64 bit safari is a hog. tells you why apple doesnt want Flash player on iPhone as it would kill the battery.
    Adobe is notorious for slow support to fix things like this.
