I know that the new KDE framework is better in a lot of ways, but I
can't help but notice that when viewing a fairly simple web page, the
combination of konqueror, nspluginviewer and Xorg is using 20-25% of my
available CPU resource. It used to use about 10%. Usage seems to go up
with every KDE iteration.
I find this a bit troubling.
I am not running a lightweight machine. My laptop has a T8100 processor
with 4 GB of RAM and an nVidia GeForce 8800M GTS video card. I DO NOT
have any desktop effects enabled and I am using the proprietary nVidia
F12, fully up to date.

Let me know what else you would like to know.
Same results here - very similar setup. You wanna know what's _really_
annoying about flash? It's eating cpu even if I pause the damn video!!
