A browser should only run applets that are visible on a page.

To check if this is still true, on my mac, while checking CPU activity, 
I've started a Proteopedia page with a single applet.

Then, I resize the page to hide/show the area of the page with
the applet on.

When the applet is visible, and the structure rotating, the CPU
activity oscillates on the 18%. It drops down to 2% when hiding
the applet by reducing the browser page.
