Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

WebHead Update -- No sooner do I write an article on recent Web browser updates (see TidBITS-326) than it's, well, out-of-date. Netscape released version 2.02 or Navigator last week (primarily fixing security problems); NCSA released 3.0b2 of Mosaic, and beta 4 of Apple's Cyberdog is now available (if you have a Power Mac and OpenDoc).
