Hi Me! Well that wasn't very productive. I'm not even sure what the
value of having the Application browser may be, since it appears all
we can do is "kind of" look at some stuff. Even if I was able to find
what I thought might be what I was looking for, and copied it using
the contextual menu; what would I be able to paste it into.
What ever? Just talking to myself!
