    I have a mid 2011 Retina MBP (8gb ram, 256 flash, 1GB in graphics, 2.3Ghz i7). I've been noticing lately that sites with photos or lots of data are loading extremely slow...for example, my dashboard on Tumblr. It takes a ton of time for short videos to load, gifs, etc and I'm not sure whats causing it. I've cleared the cache for Chrome (primary browser) but I am clueless if there are any advanced steps or personal diagnostics to run to get things back to normal...thank you!

    Download the free scanning software EteCheck. The program will scan your OS X system and print out a txt file report with five paths to Manually delete the bad file, orphaned services, run away processes. Then you throw awaythese bad files. Then reboot to clear out bad running plugins.

    Open /Applications/Utilities/Activity Viewer and use that to kill the process!

    Get rid of Google Chrome (my opinion only) ...

    Don't have to get rid of Chrome. Download and use their 64 bit version. The 32 Bit version of Chrome is a resource hog and shouldn't be used on a modern Mac.
