Thanks for all the inputs gentlemen....

I agree on the need for cross platform embedded browser support.

Will LC use another embedded browser for the mac?

So I guess there are more questions than answers here in terms of a 3

I have my first ssd sitting in the box, and once i install it i will try
not to take it for granted when judging the "performance" of my work.
