    Ever since upgrading to Lion my computer has been heating up a storm during youtube videos. Previously I never had this issue, and rightfully so.

    Fans kicked in watching a 2 minute 360p video. Checked activity monitor for the entire thing (flash process) and, well, take a look at the attachment. Is anybody else getting similar problems?

    I tend to use Firefox and Chrome instead of Safari, and disable Flash - it can still me used if necessary.

    Chrome includes its very own Flash plug-in, so it can continue displaying Flash even if you completely uninstall the system-wide Flash Player.

    I don't notice a difference between Clean Install and Upgrade when it comes to the Performance of Flash, cuz Flash is trash on Macs
