Copy Before Submitting Web Forms

Filling in Web forms (like the one used to submit this tip) can be a bit of a gamble - you put in your pearls of wisdom, perhaps only to lose them all if the Web page flakes out or the browser crashes. Instead of losing all your text, "save" it by pressing Command-A to select all and then Command-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Do this periodically as you type and before you click Submit, and you may "save" yourself from a lot of frustration. It takes just a second to do, and the first time you need to rely on it to paste back in lost text, you'll feel smart.

NoMoreiTunes 1.51

Send Article to a Friend

If you read our article "Five Essential Safari Extensions" (11 August 2010), you were likely compelled to download and install Florian Pichler's NoMoreiTunes, a free extension that prevents iTunes from opening automatically when you click an iTunes Store link on the Web. Instead, you're presented with Apple's Web page about the song, video, or app in question without getting kicked out of the browser and directly into the iTunes Store. Due to a licensing error, however, the extension's certificate was revoked, causing Safari to disable it, and as a consequence, not provide a way to update to the latest version from within Safari's Extensions preferences. This latest version fixes that problem, and adds a status bar at the top of the Web page that notes NoMoreiTunes blocked the link and includes an iTunes Store button to continue to the store.
