Adding Links in Snow Leopard's Mail

Apple Mail in Snow Leopard now has a Command-key shortcut for adding a link to an email.

If you use plain-text email, this will not be helpful at all, but if you send styled email, it's a nice shortcut for adding URLs to your email messages. Simply select the word(s) you want to make into a link, press Command-K, and enter the URL to build into the link.

Send Article to a Friend

Firefox 3.0.11 from Mozilla is a security and stability update to the popular Web browser. Several critical security vulnerabilities that could be exploited to run arbitrary code have been repaired. Other more minor security vulnerabilities have also been addressed, as well as an issue causing the bookmark database to become corrupted. Finally, several problems with the SQLite internal database have been fixed. (Free update, 17.2 MB)

Script Debugger 4.5.3 from Late Night Software is a maintenance update to the AppleScript authoring environment. Changes include the pasting of object specifiers as a series of nested tell blocks instead of one object reference, an improved Balance command, automatic closing of AppleScript blocks, and the capability to continue when Script Debugger detects duplicate symbols coming from your libraries. Also several issues have been fixed including a hanging bug that occurred when viewing the InDesign dictionary, a bug that blocked auto-close and balance when unbalanced characters appeared in a style comment, and a bug that caused references to 'path' outside of a tell block to create incorrect 4-character codes. ($199 new, free update, 10.8 MB)

1Password 2.9.19 from Agile Web Solutions is a minor compatibility update to the password syncing utility. The latest version brings full support for Safari 4 on Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and 10.5 Leopard. ($39.95 new, free update, 11.8 MB)
