Totally agree.
Wonder, how they managed to make iceweasel use more cpu and mem
than any raytracing app ...am I going overboard?
It really seems to behave bad with the new flash versions.
With flash sites opened (but stopped), cpu often goes to 46%
although the user is idle...

I found two lighter browsers, which support flash.
You may try those called Arora and Midori.
(Use a recent Qt version too.)
