    Look at this screen capture to see how Flash for Mac is bad :


    On the left : a video played with flash in firefox 3.0.5 on a virtual machine with Windows XP

    On the right : the same thing, running natively on Mac OS.

    VMWare = 8,3% of CPU
    Native Firefox = 61% !!

    I know, its pretty terrible.

    Adobe has had more than enough time to optimize their player for mac os x, but they have still ways to go. If you think that was bad be grateful you didn't have to put up with it during the os 9 days. :p
