The first problem seems to be directly related to the Flash plugin. The first thing that I notice is that the plugin is 32bit while Safari is running at 64bit. I have no problems with Flash and FF which are both running in 32 bit.
Flash has always run like ass on OS X. It runs worse in Snow Leopard.
Adobe needs to get their crap together.
I don't know if this is just an Adobe Flash Plug-In problem. Could be a hardware/video card problem. Or maybe a graphics driver problem? Hopefully the 10.6.2 update can fix that. This is not good for the refreshed iMac line!
Sarge, you and this video card fetish. It's not the video card since my old MDD has practically no trouble with the same things. Some are choppy if the machine is doing other stuff, but I'm more inclined to agree with Michael on the plug in being the the bottleneck.

First of all, I said video card drivers, not video card. Large difference. The plug in sucks on windows too, but at least the large majority of video cards accelerate flash video properly on that side.
