    I think I found out what I really hate about my macbook. Whenever I go to a site to watch FLash Videos, safari really slows down, fans go full blast and safari uses up all the CPU. I remember my old toshiba laptop didnt have this problem so I decided to test the macbook with bootcamp and XP. I opened 4 tabs running flashvideos and the fans never turned on. Videos were smooth with no frame drop.

    Is this a known issue with safari? Oh BTW I war running SAFARI for XP.
    Therefore Xp runs safari better than OSx? WTF:eek:

    quite simply this is because the Flash player plug-in is not as optimised for OS X as it is for Windows.

    so no browser for osx will fix it? i was thinking about trying every browser there is.
