Internet Explorer 2.0b3 -- Microsoft released beta 3 of Internet Explorer last week. The release includes support for Netscape plug-ins, Internet Config, and GIF animations, as well as an enhanced History feature and support for inline QuickTime movies without a plug-in. If you have a Power Mac and QuickDraw 3D, Internet Explorer also includes preliminary support for VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language); ironically, Internet Explorer now directly supports more Mac-specific technologies than Netscape Navigator. The beta can be downloaded from Microsoft's Web site, and is a little over 1 MB in size. [GD]
Expand Finder Columns Quickly
Column view in the Finder is great for navigating through your disk's hierarchy, but the columns often aren't wide enough to show the full names of all the files. To expand a column to a width that will show all file names in their entirety, double-click the handle that you would normally drag to expand or shrink the column. To expand all the visible columns to that width, Option-double-click the handle.
