Flash maxing out CPU
Does anyone else have an issue with either Chrome or Firefox where browsing the web causes their CPU to max? I was playing a video in YouTube (or listening to one rather) whilst browsing in other tabs and every time I scrolled or typed in the address bar, the video playback would stutter and the CPU level would peak. The same happens if I'm using Napster which has a flash based player. I have Googled and there seems to be some reference to Flash, but I'm on the latest version and said reference was on an ancient version.
If you use IE is the problem there? Reason I suggest this, is because Firefox and Chrome share the same plugin, whereas IE has its own.
Chrome has its own integrated (PPAPI) Flash Player plug-in, although it will also use the shared NPAPI plugin if that is installed.
