Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

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).
