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 Due to a licensing error, however, the extension's certificate was revoked, causing Safari to disable it, and as a consequence, not provide a way to update to the latest version from within Safari's Extensions preferences.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.

Set Password Activation Time in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, you can now set an amount of time after your Mac goes to sleep or engages the screen saver before it requires a password to log back on. In Leopard, the option was simply to require the password or not. Choose among several increments, between 5 seconds and 4 hours, from System Preferences > Security.
