Open Links from Mail in the Background

Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.

 
 

BLT 1.0.4

Send Article to a Friend

The link testing utility BLT has been acquired by Before Dawn Software and given a small update (for more about BLT, see "Verifying Web Links in PDF Files," 14 March 2008). The just-released BLT 1.0.4 fixes a bug dealing with sites that have too many redirects on a given page, implements an automatic update mechanism, sends error reports to the developer, and builds in a new licensing engine. Existing owners will have to create a new account to generate a new license. ($24.95 new, free update, 1.7 MB)
