100% CPU on some sites

The browser spends 100% CPU on some web-sites. Versions tested: 1.54, 1.60, 1.70

Yes, it does.

This is old engine effect on heavily scripted pages as I suppose. You can wait a bit or just control scripts activity by built-in or third-party tools...

P.S. But I found no such problems with rutracker.org though

Oh, excuse me, actually this is not a browser problem. The problem comes from the flash player (yes, Adobe). I have tested Opera for that and have received the simular results: Viewing some (flash based) ad banners causes it to spend 100% CPU.. Is that the time to update my flash player? =)

It's also probably interesting to activate Flashblock, You will then have the possibility to lauch the flash animation you want, but block the ads which eat a great part of your computer resourses.

You can find it in preferences.

Yes, flash is CPU hog independently of player version. FF for example even has separate process for flash-player.

And the best solution for now is what JujuLand wrote: use Flashblock by default. You can add some sites to flashblock exceptions list and (as written) manually allow any single flash module on the page...

Yes K-meleon is old, but it helps to change the settings.
I have a KMFILES tool that gives you some control.
http://home.dbdbdugbug.operaunite.com/Projects/content/KMFILES/A_KMFILES_HELP.html

I looked at the CPU usage & it is high at first.
But it stays high less time if you set the
setpref(INT, "browser.cache.disk.capacity",0);
setpref(INT,"browser.cache.memory.capacity",65536);

Or setpref(INT,"browser.cache.check_doc_frequency",2);
2 Never check for a new version always load the page from cache.
3 Check for a new version when the page is out of date. (Default)

If you use RAM Memory for the Cache, it runs faster than the Disk.
Loads up faster. Also the flash info will also be in RAM.
Could be bad for security, or not.
I had an WIN386.SWP file that was not in the place it was supposed to be at
My Anti-Virus said it was a virus. I think it came thru the flash on Opera.
I set Opera:config to load up the flash in RAM.
But I never had any virius with K-meleon, in RAM yet so far.
So I cant say for sure!
If you look at "BAD flash", turn off the
setpref(INT,"browser.cache.memory.capacity",0);
And load from disk only. Or turn it all off!

Anyway you see it, the internet is changing!
And K-meleon is going to have a few bugs that pop from time to time.
