#29 off topic -- cpu usage on downloads

Congrats to all developers on such an awesome project from a lowly EE undergrad :p
This is quite off topic, but I noticed that when I'm downloading files with Mozilla builds over the past few months my cpu temperature rises to 50+ degrees celcius -- as hot as when I'm running cpu-intensive games -- during the download. As a comparison, using Netscape 4.76 during a download hardly increases the cpu usage +1 degree celcius. Is there some feature that speeds up downloads (and eats up lots more cpu)?
Other than the cpu temp/usage annoyance, I'm very satisfied with the latest builds. Keep up the good work!
