I gave it a shot but ran into similar problems with Chrome. My biggest problem has been with the and sites. When I try streaming content from those sites CPU usage after 5 or so minutes climbs to 70-100%.

I'm not having significant problems streaming content from Amazon Prime, Pandora, or YouTube using Flash. I'm streaming Iron Man 2 on Amazon right now and CPU is between 3 and 13%. I tried switching to Pandora and Pandora uses a similar amount of CPU.

I wonder if separate/additional loads are created at all the various commercial breaks where separate flash movies are run. Don't know for sure.
