I agree that a quick glance is in order, but your table was 
unfortunately a poor format for that kind of information.  With the 
exception of "Windows Webfolders", no row had a checkbox in more than 
one column (and Webfolders should have only had one) -- that's a sign 
that a multi-column checkbox isn't the right format.  If instead you 
want to do something like this:

    Standalone applications
    	Microsoft Office, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, ...
    Explorer extensions
    	Webfolders, Nautilus, ...
    Filesystem implementations
    	Mac OS X, ...

That's fine.  It ain't like there's so many of these things listed that 
the application names need to be the "keys" into the table -- a quick 
vgrep does the trick.
