Open Files with App Switcher

Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.

Camino 2.0.9

Send Article to a Friend

Following quick on the heels of version 2.0.8, the Camino Project has released version 2.0.9 of its Camino for Mac OS X Web browser. The latest release fixes build issues with the previous version which caused some formerly fixed crashing bugs to reappear. In addition, the 2.0.9 release fixes both a Netflix-related crashing bug and a hang that occurs when Camino is asked by another application to open a URL using an unknown protocol. It also updates the code that the browser uses to block Flash animations. (Free, 15.8 MB)

Personally, I find the new version a disaster for an OS X 10.4.11 user. Sites that interact with the OS Keychain get hung up hopelessly.
