    Hi, Guys, Do you meet the problem that your macbook air fan is easily spinning to 6200 even you only do some internet surf? I find this problem after my update of safari. before that, my macbook air fan seldom went up to 6200. what happened? how can I go back the old safari?

    I had the same happen. Also well, my keyboard repeat rate was really slow. Idid another reboot and the problems disappeared.

    Hope you experience the same.

    Do you guys have Flip4Mac installed? If so, that's your problem.

    Where do you even look to see what speed the fan is running at?

    your fans shouldn't hit 6200rpm when surfing safari.
    mine stays at 2500rpm unless i watch some hd movies.

    Open activity monitor (spotlight it — should be in utilities), and order the list by CPU % (highest first).

    That way you can see which processes are using the most CPU cycles. If anyone is excessively high (80/90%), then you will get the fans.

    Check it is Safari causing the problem first — it probably is but it may be something else.

    I'm having the same problem. And when the fans ramp up to 6000+, even when I shut down every single application, it continues to stay at 6000+.

    I'm using a 1.8 model with the HDD, not SSD

    Try to uninstall flip4mac. i did that according to Maui19 advice. The fan doesn't go up to 6000+ till now.

    This is the first time i've heard of flip4mac... so I don't think that's the problem for me.
