    Is it normal to experience 115% cpu usage while downloading a video from the internet? I don't normally use this particular site to watch movies but my go to source was down so I was linked to somewhere else. Firefox kept freezing and it was impossible to multi-task while the video was downloading. As soon as it was finished, the cpu dropped down to 40%. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this happening or was it just a buggy website?

    Any thoughts on this? firefox becomes completely unusable while the videos are downloading/streaming. As soon as the dl is finished, things are back to normal.
