    If you have flash and various other plugins, they will raise the temperature. It could also be that the fans have too much dust.

    Make a new user account and try Safari there. Is it still running hot?

    Is it always hot or does it get hot when you watch movies? Are you using it on a soft surface?

    Maybe ask Apple to look at it? You should have warranty till next year.

    I am having the exact same problem. When I quit Safari and run Firefox or Chrome, it's fine and doesn't heat up or use up the battery. I can't find ANY solutions anywhere. Running Yosemite 10.10.5. Safari version is 9.0.1. Any help would be appreciated.

    What are you doing on Safari normally? And does the issue happen if you try a different browser?
