While small in terms of numeric progression, Audio Hijack Pro 2.10.1 from Rogue Amoeba adds some welcome new features. The latest release of this audio recording program includes the latest version of the Instant On component (5.0), which can now capture audio from sandboxed applications purchased from the Mac App Store. The Multi-Process mode, previously used in conjunction when pulling audio from several Web browsers, is now used for additional applications to improve audio capture. Finally, audio pulled from input devices can now be configured in Audio MIDI Setup instead of always using channels 1 and 2. ($32 new, free update, 5.2 MB, release notes)
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.
