Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

 
 

Security Update 2011-005

Send Article to a Friend

In light of the recent security breach at certificate authority DigiNotar, Security Update 2011-005 removes DigiNotar from the list of trusted root certificates and from the list of Extended Validation (EV) certificate authorities, and configures default system trust settings so that DigiNotar’s certificates, including those issued by other authorities, are not trusted (for more info, see the links in "Firefox 6.0.2," 8 September 2011). The release is available for both Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and 10.7 Lion, and it updates both Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server. (Free, 869 KB for Snow Leopard, 15.59 MB for Lion, release notes)

It's a shame they have already started leaving Leopard behind.

Yes, but since Mozilla is still releasing these type of security updates to FF 3.6, I really don't need Apple to do so.
