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.

Quicksilver ß67

Send Article to a Friend

The resurrected Quicksilver utility lives to launch another day with an update to version ß67. It has a smattering of additions and improvements, including monitoring of running applications and processes in real time, improved catalog search speed, and rejiggering and simplification of preferences. But ß67 is largely a maintenance release that squashes a number of bugs, including a fix for “odd behavior” when grabbing multiple items in the Finder, correct resolution of wildcards in paths and restoration of docked panels, and putting a stop to duplicating objects in the catalog when added to the object history. (Free, 2.4 MB, release notes)

This is great news. I've used other app launchers, but like QS the best.

You should try Alfred app.
Quicksilver still better IMHO. Alfred nice, but don't like the "Pack" approach. Plus it is free :-)
