Does this Bing page cause high CPU useage on your PC

If anyone would care to try this I would be very interested to know the result.

Also what operating system is used e.g. Vista 32 bit using IE9

Three days ago Bing had an animated graphics home page picture (tree climbing frog) that on my laptop causes excess CPU usage. The page is here, just use the arrow buttons at bottom of picture to step back to Wednesdays picture.

Bing Home Page

For me the CPU usage jumps from around 3% to 60% while displaying this image. Same issue occurs with many of "Googles doodles" too. I'm just interested as to whether this is a widespread effect or something that only occurs on certain hardware etc

Picture will expire in 4? days from today so a limited time to test. (Use the arrows to step back through each days pictures)
