It's too simple puzzle :-). The most interesting in these results it's
crashes and freezes.

Of course I know about this dependence of CPU consuming from the number of
CPU cores (just after I've upgraded first time from 1 core to 2 cores CPU
March 2009). During this testing I've checked this exploit (in Firefox) on
one notebook - the only computer with single core CPU at my home - and
results was 88% CPU consumption.

Anyone want to bet that he doesn't understand threading? ;)
