I don't know for sure, but I'd imagine so! I'm certainly
interested in trying it out. I don't have a very fast computer -- on
purpose, because I'm not interested in being so much on the cutting edge
that I get out of touch with the needs of the average user. This means
that it's a real pain downloading large PDFs (anything over 20K per page).
