What OS and browser/version are you running?

I do most of my development on a macbook which doesn't have much in  
terms of graphics acceleration either (integrated intel thing), and  
it's plenty fast here.

I guess it could be trimmed down in terms of animation, but I'd really  
like to keep the "dimming out" of the stuff behind the dialog. That's  
a pretty common theme these days too, with all the lightbox/thickbox  
usage. Are those slow for you too?
