For those who would like to control multiple networked Macs from a single mouse and keyboard, Julien Robert of Abyssoft has now updated his donationware utility Teleport to be compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion (for a review of an earlier version, see “Tools We Use: Teleport,” 27 August 2007). Other new features in Teleport 1.1 include the capability to jump directly to a controlled Mac by pressing a keyboard shortcut, significantly faster file transfers, multiple item file transfers, support for all available screens on Macs with more than one, full support for gestures, encrypted file transfers, and more.

Open Links from Mail in the Background
Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.
