    Yes.



    In a terminal window type "top" and hit return. Control-C to exit.



    The column '#Th' stands for the number of threads that that app/tool is using.





    Note that Safari was using 5 for me, and OmniWeb is currently using 56. Both would benefit from more CPUs/cores/or HyperThreading.
