I find that explanation rather incredible.  You'd expect the opposite,
that if the firewall was stopping something, your machine would be doing
less work.

It's more likely that your browser is chewing the CPU more is because of
some plugin in your browser is doing more.  Such as one browser is
trying to deal with using Flash, and the other is ignoring it.  Or Java,
or Javascript, etc.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
