I see many threads populating this forum about how flash is extremely CPU intensive and almost unusable on a Mac. Is this true or are these issues rare and user related? I plan on buying a MBP and I would like to know the general consensus on flash. Also, which browser is generally the fastest, most reliable browser? On PC for instance, Chrome is unsurpassed in speed. Firefox used to be the browser of choice but it has since been dethroned. Safari on a PC is terrible.
