    Hey all,
    Just bought my first Mac. Got the 13" Pro 2.4ghz and I am totally impressed by it. The only thing that's a bother is that I find Chrome freezes up sometimes when playing flash movies or there's flash ads.

    Do any browsers handle flash better than others?

    I've that same problem in Chrome. Not sure, but as Chrome and Safari are webkit based, both may have the same performance handling flash. Your best bet is Camino/Firefox.

    Firefox basically sucks for Flash, due to the built-in framerate limiting.(30fps max)
    Chrome probably has the best implementation of the Flash Plugin, with the auto updater.
    Safari and Chrome can achieve higher framerates than Firefox.
