Great to see some testing. I haven't touched Chrome on the OSX yet...will do that after my upgrade to SL.

I can't quantify or qualify the 'user experience' of FF or Safari vs. Opera, but Opera seems to be snappier at posting the pages. I can actually see FF or Safari draw and complete DL of picture portions of almost if it was downloading through an ISDN line or something.

Again...user experience. I don't have many add-ons used on FF at this time.

Infoworld did a piece on the top 10 most essential open source application for the Mac OS X. Out of their list of 10, I only use Firefox and VLC Player.

You can check out their list at The best free open source software for Mac OS X | Open Source - InfoWorld

I have the iLife 2010 installed on my 10v but it doesn't show the hole page. I'm missing some button's. How do I resize the windows in the screen?

Have you tried the usual resolution scaling hack? ( Virtually increase your Dell Mini Screen Resolution )

Note there is a way to temporarily scale every new application that opens, permanently scale every application that opens, and/or permanently scale a particular application.

Some of the Adobe CS4 apps dont work too well on the 600 screen height, for example you cant see the bottom (& thus the save button) in Photoshop's save for web dialogue.

However, you can still save by pressing Enter.
& I havent come across anything you cant work around.

Screen real estate makes things awkward with your tools bars & palettes open, but if you just show the palettes you want & then collapse them to "icons" you have almost full screen for your document.

The guy who posted his screen shot of photoshop should probably set his tools to double column instead of single, as you can see his tool bar is off the bottom of the screen.
