So, propane is taking 20-30% of my cpu cycles, but only when i have one particular tab open. If I go to a second tab that I have open, cpu usage drops back down to < 1%. Anyone else experienced this? Only thing different about offending tab is it has a few more users (maybe 10 vs 5 in the other) and someone posted an animated gif.

Report from a co-worker in the room (I'm on 1.3.4):
Chris Tsongas i have the same version. when i shrink up the propane window so the animated gif is off screen, the cpu drops

Yes, animated gifs consume a lot of CPU while they are
on-screen. You can see the same effect if you view the same
Campfire room in Safari.
If you right-click on an image you can select the menu option of
"Hide annoying image" and it will cause the image to be replaced
with a link.

So, no fix planned for this? I know my browser doesn't gobble cpu if I'm
viewing a page with an animated gif.

If your browser is Safari, then it does gobble the CPU when
viewing animated gifs in Campfire (though it's a sub-process called
"Safari Web Content").
Propane currently uses the same rendering engine as Safari
(WebKit) which is why it behaves the same when presenting animated
So the fix, as such, is to move away from browser-based
rendering. I'm working towards it.
