What does your OS tell you is driving the increased CPU utilization?

Well I use Firefox and cpu usage goes up to 25 % on amazon.com

What browser do you all use ?

The only thing on Amazon that is causing my CPU to spike is the Adobe Flash plugin for both IE and Firefox. I'd look into that.

That must be it then. Sense Newegg does the same thing.

Flash and Firefox are well-known memory leakers. :(

about:addons > plugins > click "check to see if your plugins are up to date" at the top.

 

Sounds like Flash is out of date. You could set it to Ask To Activate from the plugins list, and see if it speeds things up.

 

Last resort - reset your Firefox profile.

Could be an extension as well. I had similar issues with Amazon and a few other sizes with a "linkification" addon, would slow the browser to a crawl as it processed the page.  Once I pinned down the culprit I told it to exclude every site except for the ones I actually needed it on and the problem immediately disappeared.
