    Depends on the filetype. Many files will open just fine on the Mac. Some you will need a little help. Sounds like this one might be an AVI file or something of that nature. You might find this link useful...

    Use tabs. In Safari, press APPLE+T to open a new tab. You can have multiple sites open and switch back and forth between them very easily. Once you use tabs there is no going back to multiple instances of the browser.

    Install Flip4Mac (it's a quicktime plugin). Get VLC player for files that cannot be opened.

    For opening multiple web sites, open new tab (with menu on top or keyboard short cut COMMAND-T).

    To switch to different apps use COMMAND-TAB or the dock, don't minimize.
