Uncomplex has released Mailplane 3.0.1, a maintenance release to the Gmail-specific mail client that revises keyboard shortcuts for opening mail due to a change that enables shortcuts to work in reply mode. The previous Mail > Open option has been revised to Mail > Open Conversation (Command-]), while Mail > Open In New Window has been added (Command-O). The update also lets you hide the tab bar, fixes an AppleScript issue with paragraphs in the mail body, squashes a bug with downloaded attachments containing special characters in their file names, and ensures that opening a file dialog no longer crashes the app in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. ($24.95 new, free update, 20-percent-off upgrade discount or free upgrades for purchases after 1 October 2012, 3.6 MB, release notes)
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.
