    I hope they update this sooner but God damn.

    Flash Player (Safari Internet plug-in) - bounces between 30-110% CPU.
    Completely ridiculous

    Safari Web Content - same thing but up to around 90%

    I hadn't touched Finder and I noticed it up at 40%+

    This Lion has made my computer so "laggy". Yes, I do have two windows with about 15 tabs combined but hey, ran buttery smooth on SnowLeopard. Thought Lion was an upgrade.

    It all goes back down and 15min later, back to doing it slow ass thing


    -not to mention the FORCED inverted trackpad on my black macbook

    I assume this has to do with their Flashplayer accelerator (or lack of) I have heard of them removing

    Well... I hate to suggest other software for you to use, but I would recommend using Chrome until the update. The flash player plug-in seems to not be bugged as I've been using it no problem ever since I upgraded to Lion yesterday!

    And, uh... forced? You can't change it by going to Trackpad Preferences > Scroll and Zoom > Uncheck Scroll Direction?

    Thanks for the Chrome tip, I'll look into that.

    Yes FORCED, ppl fail to realize there were no black MacBooks with the new style trackpad.
    So **** you Apple, you can figure out when it has two fingers and the direction Im going, so let me switch it.

    I thought Apple 'fixed' that in DP 2 :confused: Anyway, have a look at this thread.
