Netscape Finds Director -- Netscape Communications Corp. announced last week that it plans to integrate Shockwave into future versions its Netscape Navigator Web client. Shockwave is playback technology for Macromedia's Director, a popular multimedia authoring package. The idea is that as bandwidth to homes and offices increases, you'll be able to transparently play back multimedia projects developed in Director live over the Internet, regardless of the platform of the host computer. Well, hey, it can't be much slower than Director from your hard disk, right? [GD]
Hide TextExpander in the Dock
If you don't want to see TextExpander's icon in the Dock and the application switcher, you can remove it. Just open TextExpander > Preferences > Appearance, and select Hide TextExpander Icon in Dock. You'll still be able to access TextExpander from its menubar icon.
