Two Shortcuts for App Exposé

If you want to see all the windows for a particular app via App Exposé, there are two hidden shortcuts. For either, start by pressing Command-Tab to bring up the app switcher. Then, while still holding down the Command key, press either the 1 key or the up arrow. That puts you into App Expose mode, with all of an app's windows showing, and recent documents in a row across the bottom of the screen. Let up on the Command key, and then you can press Tab to cycle through all the running apps.

Camino 2.1

Send Article to a Friend

After over two years in development, the open source Camino 2.1 Web browser has made a long-awaited appearance, complete with numerous bug fixes and performance improvements. Most notable is a completely rewritten autocomplete feature that now searches both bookmarks and browsing history, and can match against both Web addresses and page titles. But other changes aren’t to be sneezed at either, including better support for Web standards like HTML5 and JavaScript thanks to Mozilla’s Gecko 1.9.2 engine, full-screen compatibility with Netflix, and improvements in the browser’s security and privacy system.
