Open Files with App Switcher

Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.

Netscape Posts Two Updates

Send Article to a Friend

Netscape Posts Two Updates -- Netscape has released version 2.01 of Netscape Navigator, which improves on 2.0 by offering security enhancements, including a preference to disable JavaScript. Since the release of Navigator 2.0, several possible security issues have been uncovered, including the ability to surreptitiously gather users' email addresses and other information using JavaScript. One ironic side effect of disabling JavaScript, however, is that Web sites relying heavily on it - including Netscape's - may not load properly, whereas they may load correctly in browsers with no JavaScript support whatsoever. A full installer is available, and a patcher application is available for users who purchased the full not-for-export version.

Netscape's beta release of a Java-enabled version of Navigator for Power Macs also expired last week, prompting Netscape to re-post the release with the expiration date set to 01-Jul-96. No other changes are included in the release. [GD]
