    I've been noticing incredibly slow and unresponsive web page loading, particularly on Facebook and Google maps, it's been driving me bonkers! I noticed that it was happening only on secure connections so I turned off SSL on Facebook and it's lightning quick now.

    Looking at processes I see 'ocspd' is maxing out my processor on SSL pages I visit. I see that is to do with certificate verification.

    Any ideas what's going on, it was never a problem in the past, I think it stated when I upgraded to 10.8, but not entirely sure.

    I've got a MBPr 2.7GHz i7 with SSD, so computer speed shouldn't be the cause!

    Any ideas?

    I'm bumping this because I cannot find an answer, identical issue - started last week, anything HTTPS hammers my CPU and ocspd is the culprit.

    Honestly, I feel like throwing this Mac in the bin now.

    Still happening... a year later.

    I don't think anyone from Apple actually reads this site, nor does anyone have any clue WTF is going on inside a Mac. It's 30 years of cruft at this point. Turn it off & on again, and pray.
