Just saw on C-SPAN, (probably most genealogists already know) The govt. web-page still needs a fair amount of work, it is a bit slow, and does not work smoothly with my browser, but I was able to download the ~200 pages I wanted to checkout.

comes with instructions.

I found myself and Mac both in the 1940 census. What 200 pages are you wanting? There is a series of 5 webinars on the 1940 census that I've been watching at: rootsmagic.com and click on Learn.

Several of the page links did not work on either Firefox or Chrome while I was poking around. But I was able to download the images of pages. I was trying to find my parents, and I just grabbed the whole town where they would have lived. Should be easier to find with the census images on my computer rather than through the web browser. Then I found that the penmanship of the census-takers was worse than most engineers.

I will have to go back to it when I am in a patient mood.
