Open Links from Mail in the Background

Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.

Tonya and I are deep into working on the fourth edition of Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh, which means that we're likely to be less responsive to email for a while.

If you're the author of a freely distributable freeware or shareware Internet program, I'd like to consider your program for inclusion on the CD that will come with the book. The same goes for commercial Internet programs with freely distributable demos. So, if you'd like to submit your program for inclusion on the CD, check out the Web form at:

<http://www.tidbits.com/iskm/cd_form/cd_submit_ form.html>

Similarly, if you are an Internet service provider (anywhere in the world) that supports PPP and would like to be included in the book and installer, send email to <iskm-providers@tidbits.com>. We'll collect names and send out more information when we have a Web signup form posted. [ACE]
