Hello Bob,

Awesomium is a web-UI. It's like an engine of a browser implemented within an app to allow it to connect to the internet through it rather than through a different browser. In the past, our plugin used IE to connect which unfortunately, greatly diminished the performance and introduced some bugs. Now our plugin uses Awesomium as a "bridge" to the web. We may change it to a Firefox engine soon, though, to allow full 64-bit support.

Best regards,
