Some people have said that I'm insane, but I just like to think of myself as responsibly cautious.
That's gold.

Seriously, I never knew about any of these until I read this thread.

We have all of them installed in all of our iMac's. Except for HDD had no issues.

I just got my new 27" today and now questioning it but mt nieces and nephews use it for games.

If you think Steve Jobs can fix your issue then you are insane.

Seriously though, that doesn't make sense what you're saying, no matter what application you use to browse webpages it will still be called a "web browser".
I hope you were being sarcastic in your entire post. I really do.

Why do people stay away from flash? Coming over from Windows I installed it I believe the first day or so I got my unit...should/could I uninstall it?

Tried going the user agent route. Every time I try to load tho it does a redirect to: nflx://www.netflix.com/WiPlayer?episodeid=70248471&movieid=70177057&trkid...etc which obviously fails out because safari doesnt know what to do with an nflx protocol call.... Any ideas on that?

And I can't Airplay to it because apparently you can only airplay from OSX to an Apple TV, you can't use it as a destination from an iDevice.

If you really want to spend money as a work around to the free silverlight plugin, there's always: Air Server

Comes in a free trial to test it out first, though I can confirm it'll work mirroring Netflix on iOS to your Mac.
