Mac installer launches the verify page on top of installer while installer still working (JDK-8007045), this over takes the install process. Since "close" event on Mac installer cannot be captured, verify page should open in the background one level below the installer UI.
Verified for JDK8 b93 promotion.

Well, after reading the description second time, I think my saying above didn't hit the verification point. But please help point out the exact verification point(s) of bugs for your SQE friends. It would save time and effort for both. Thanks.

This is still not fixed in JDK 8 b91 PIT. The verify page will always appear BEFORE the install process ends.

User -g option to open the verify URL, this will open the browser in the background.
