Flash eats 100% CPU


Hi all,

Just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my wife's laptop and everything goes well until surfing website that having flash video. I notice the CPU goes up until 100% then I close the page and CPU immediately goes down to around 30 to 40%. Any idea to solve this. I've tried using adobe flash plug-ins and swfdec-gnome but results are the same.

@SlowCoder: ROFL, I thought the same thing.

@xgreen: Flash and linux don't go hand-in-hand (yet). That is, for most of us, a well known fact. Sad but true. Only after adobe starts treating linux seriously, we will see major improvements.
