    I'm not sure if this is a commonly known issue with Snow Leopard, but most of the time, everything works fairly well performance wise.

    Other times -- while watching a video on youtube or any other site with embedded flash videos -- the video starts running REALLY choppy and will continue to do so until I completely close Safari and re-launch it.

    Is this an indication of something wrong with my computer, or again, is this simply a problem with Snow Leopard that is known and will hopefully be corrected in the near future?

    Its just flash, its very buggy. If you watch youtube a lot download and install click to flash. Its a great app that only loads flash when you click on the item with flash and on youtube it plays the video in H.264.

    Hmm, thanks for that, I'll give it a try later on. Yeah because I also noticed that sometimes when I go to a flash heavy site, the page doesn't scroll too smoothly either.
