Xorg does not just hog CPU while firefox is rendering a page (this would
be understandable), but even when firefox is quietly waiting for data,
for example if the wireless connection has dropped out, firefox is
sitting using about 5% CPU waiting for data, but Xorg is eating 40% -

At least with the new version, firefox itself doesn't hog so much CPU
time while waiting for data from the network interface.

Ubuntu 7.10 (PPC) Apple PowerBook G4 ATI rv350 FOSS xorg driver -
Firefox 3.0
