    Lately I've been quite concerned about the cpu heat of my mbp, so I've checked the activity monitor, and what it showed was the Flash player plugin for Safari is consuming a large amount of CPU thus producing the heat which I am worried about.

    Is anyone experiencing this sort of problem and knows the solution to reduce the CPU consumption? I do not wish to remove the plugin unless there are no other options... :(

    There is a plugin for safari called click to flash. This has helped me no end.

    Another alternative is to remove flash altogether. It is a CPU and memory hog.
