Almost any page I open in Safari that has any kind of movement (Flash, animated GIF ads, etc.) will invariably wind up the fans on my dual G5 to jet engine levels, using anywhere from 15%-50% of the CPU cycles. WTF? This happens in Safari, and is usually even worse in Firefox. No way I'm buying that a simple, small, animated GIF that's changing perhaps 2-10 times per second should require that kind of CPU. This seems like some kind of fundamental OS/API bug (perhaps in Quartz, WebKit, or khtml?) that's been that way as long as I can remember in OS X. I always thought it was an early problem that would improve in time, but it never seems to. The longer Safari stays open, the more severe the problem seems to get, as well (and it tends to get more sluggish). I often have to quit Safari and relaunch it to calm it back down.
