    I want to like Google Chrome, but for some reason it seems like when i use Chrome my macbook pro's fans shoot up. Even just doing normal browsing.. although it does naturally happen to youtube based stuff

    You know, that YouTube uses Flash to embed its videos?

    Flash is highly CPU intensive, even using YT via Safari will heat the CPU and make the fan(s) spin.

    Have you tried the HTML5 beta of YouTube yet?

    Also, all the browsers have a flash block add on where you can just click to activate the flash. Here's a link to one of Chrome's. I always install flash blockers on my browers. Clicktoflash is the best one I've used though and that's only on Safari.

    I use Chrome as my default browser on a Macbook Pro and have no problems.
