Opening a Folder from the Dock

Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.

Google Chrome 5.0.307.7

Send Article to a Friend

Google's latest release of Google Chrome for Mac adds several features that are necessary for the browser to be considered a viable alternative to Firefox or Safari. The latest version includes support for extensions (similar to add-ons in Firefox that extend your browser's functionality), the capability to sync bookmarks, and new bookmark, cookie, and task managers. Also, gesture support has been expanded to enable users to pinch-to-zoom, and use Command-three finger swipe to navigate pages in new tabs. Be aware though, Chrome is still in beta testing and therefore may be prone to buggy behavior. (Free, 18.8 MB)

Yeah, it's so buggy that it crashes on Acid Test 3.

And when I went to report the crash, their form doesn't list Mac OS X as an operating system choice; only various flavors of Windows!

Google has a long, long way to go before I'll even entertain thoughts of Chrome.
I actually find Chrome to be very stable, very fast, and now that I can use extensions, it's replaced Firefox as my default browser.

I have had it up an running for 30 hours. In that time I've had two different pages crash, but not the browser itself.
