Thanks Scott, got the web browser help working now from the settings  
you gave me. I installed macports from the link on to . Trying to make it work for the sake of completeness but  
also for screen space and quickness really, esecially now I'm learning  
to use Gimp, just a quick screen reminder to quickly remind me of tool  
actions etc.
