That depends what side you visit. If there is a java applet or a flash
animation inside you need more CPU.
Yes, I think you'll find that Flash is the culprit.
Since Flash is used for gratuitous, annoying animation most of the
time, you can remove the flashplugin-nonfree package.
Or install the flashblock extension to firefox. It replaces flash
elements with a button, and the flash content only plays if you click
