    Oh joy, oh rupture.
    Gotta love some evil bahstages for hijacking your CPU. Arrgh, what next? Can you see if they're using your machine this way?

    I'm sure there is some way to see a process running, but it may just look like your browser is just using extra CPU.

    I dunno how to see my processor usage. In the bad old operating system days (which now worsens by the hour-almost) it was easy, but I dunno how to see this value in Linux. I know, oh the shame of it. Sorry for being so ignorant.

    In Linux its called System Monitor
    You can probably just click your Menu and type "System Monitor"
    Then click the processes tab and you can see everything running behind-the-scenes

    Thank you booman! Typing in "Activity Monitor" didn't seem to work, but choosing "System Monitor" revealed that my CPU usage goes between 0% and 3% for each of the four cores. With up to 20% momentarily. Seems OK to me? Thanks again!

    Oops sorry about that. I meant "System Monitor"
    I keep getting Mac's "Activity Monitor" and "System Monitor" mixed up.
