Sony's Clip Browser different aspect on Mac and PC?

To my surprise, I noticed that the user interface of Sony's Clip Browser is quite different for the Mac and the PC versions. In the PC version, there are dark and light grey backgounds in the panes, while on a Mac, all this is white, and less comfortable on the eye.

Is there a setting that I'm maybe missing on my Mac-version of the program, or it this white background as good as it's gonna get? That would be a bad case of discrimination! :-)

Thanks for the remark, Vincent. That makes it even more different from the Mac version! Any Mac users here to comment? I just want to know if it's not a preferences setting that I'm missing out on my Mac, as I prefer the PC-version by far.

I'm on a Mac...and frankly, prefer the higher contrast version. ;)

Yeah, I guess it's a matter of taste, and getting used to. But now I can rest assured that it's not some kind of setting that I missed. Thanks.
