    hi , i just upgraded to Mountain Lion
    clean install
    and my machine is
    MBP 15" mid 2009

    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,3
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
    Number of Processors: 1
    Total Number of Cores: 2

    Memory: 8 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: MBP53.00AC.B03
    SMC Version (system): 1.48f2

    everything works well
    but i have a little trouble.

    i always use safari for browsing
    i always opened a lots of new tab
    normally 20-30 tabs at once.

    in Lion i have no problems

    but after i upgrader to ML
    when i open about 10 tabs on the safari it started to lagg
    the whole machine started to lagg
    i have 8GB ram so i dont think thats the issues

    from the istat menu cpu monitors
    the top 2 procceses is
    webproccess
    and
    safari

    the webprocces can get to more than 100%

    i dont know whats wrong with it
    surelly my old core 2 duo peryn proccesors are enough to be used for browsing right ?

    can anyboddy help me here ?

    thank you.

    Do a SMC reset,Clear PRAM,start your mac in recovery partition repair permissions,remove cookies,enable develop via advanced settings emply caches and see if you see any improvements.

    Normally I would suggest what you said as well, but He clearly said it is a new installation, you forgot to mention to reset Safari and remove com.apple.safari.plist.

    _______

    How much RAM is taken by Safari, post a screenshot of Activity Monitor-System memory.

    All that, and also disable all your installed Safari extension

    this is clean install
    1 days old i havent transfer my data back from the external HD

    i did reset SMC, PRAM
    then i reset safari since the beggining of the mountain lion install
    the only thing i installed is adobe flash player because some of the web pages were asking for it.

    whne i opened 2-4 tabs it was okay.
    but more than 10 tabs then it started to choke.

    ----------

    idid veryfy and repair the disk on disk utillity but theres no errors found
    should i boot into recovery to do this ?

    If you need to repair then yes, but it did not find any errors so it is not needed now.

    In preferences you could try to disable Javascript under security I think and look what happens, I googled your problem and there seem to be problems before with it, just try and if needed switch it on again.
    Also, do you have previews enabled, disable it, I never use that one.

    ***Javascript is not Java, you should always disable Java, it's almost never used by most users.
