Just for grins I fired up IE on my mac ....
PID COMMAND %CPU TIME #TH #PRTS #MREGS RPRVT RSHRD RSIZE
556 Internet E 2.6% 0:13.75 6 90 157 4.23M 19.2M 12.5M
497 Safari 0.0% 0:04.17 5 103 181 3.73M 15.0M 9.81M
361 firefox-bi 1.2% 39:34.10 10 200 559 79.8M 40.6M 102M
IE isn't _doing_ anything yet the %CPU value is jumping between 0% to 4%
