This site eating up processor

Postby psp888 » Mon Aug 07, 2006 11:37

Why does viewing this site make the processor cycle round 0-70% evey few seconds.

Its really killing my laptop battery, keeping this site open.

I have not really noticed it but I wonder if the gigantic animated image in the header could have something to do with it.

I agree with BrunoT's train of thought, it may be that image.
Rather than have it rotate between four jpg's every five seconds or so, why not just make it a gif?

yup, it's taking up at least 17-20% of my CPU each time it "refreshes"

Yes, it's quite noticable when you are on IE. Firefox seems to handle the slideshow better.

scratch that...!!!

after some time, say about a few minutes later; the changes in the header dont affect CPU usage anymore.... it is quite constant at 5%

btw, im using Firefox 1.5...

I guess once it cycled through all the images, they are already loaded in the memory... something alongside those lines?
