    Wonder if anyone can help, i was playing this flash video using safari and my MBA started to heat up and the fans kicking in and creating noise. I never notice this level of noises on my 2010 MBP 15'' i5. I am not sure if it is normal or it is just my macbook air.

    everything seems to be fine when i am running it on google chrome instead of safari. I know safari dislikes flash but i didn't expect it to behave so badly.

    thanks for any input and help:cool:

    Disable hardware acceleration and see if that helps.

    thing seems to be running quiet after i installed adblock on safari. Will do some intensive flash video testing over the weekend and see if it happens again.
