One worrisome thing about CDF is that it appears to conflict with
Mathematica when a Parallel computation is running (at least on Mac OS
X 10.6.8):

1) Save important files because your computer might slow to a crawl in
this experiment (be prepared to force-quit Mathematica).
2) In Mathematica, start a long evaluation using all kernels. The
following is an example, you could adjust the number of iterations:
ParallelTable[
  Rasterize[Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, \[Pi]}], ImageResolution -> 144], {i,
   100}];
3) While the above is running, try to open a web page with a CDF in
it, for example
http://www.abstractmath.org/Word%20Press/?p=2126

The CDF will not load and hence the web page will not display
properly. The same happens on demos.wolfram.com and also on W|A when
CDF is enabled.
