Create Multiple Inspectors in iWork

Tired of flipping between panes in the Inspector in Keynote, Pages, and Numbers? You can open multiple copies of the Inspector window with View > New Inspector, but even better, you can Option-click one of the icons at the top of the Inspector window to open that pane in a new Inspector.

 
 

Firefox 10.0

Send Article to a Friend

Continuing with its inane version numbering scheme, Mozilla has released Firefox 10.0, adding a few minor features to the Web browser and fixing a couple of bugs. (Firefox 8.0 and 9.0 were too minor to warrant mention — you can think of 10.0 as 4.6 in the real world.) The only feature you’re likely to notice is that the Forward button is now hidden until you’ve navigated back in browsing history. Firefox also now allows most add-ons to be compatible with new versions of Firefox by default, so you won’t lose access to add-ons every 6 weeks when Mozilla releases a new version. Also, Firefox 10.0 now offers support for anti-aliasing for WebGL, CSS3 3D-Transforms, the HTML5 element for bi-directional text isolation, and HTML5 full-screen APIs. Fixed bugs include one that could cause a crash when closing a tab containing a Java applet and another that cropped up when moving bookmarks. Outstanding bugs worth keeping an eye on include slow scrolling in the main Gmail window, an incompatibility with Growl 1.3, jerky scrolling and text input, and failure to play Silverlight video on some Macs. (Free, 31.4 MB, release notes)

The only thing that really required saying about this update, & in fact should be shouted from the rooftops, is FIREFOX NO LONGER AUTOMATICALLY KILLS YOUR ADD-ONS WITH EACH MINOR BUG-FIX (aka Release)! [At last, long overdue, & desperately needed since FF3.0!]
