Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

 
 

Discover Anyone’s #FirstTweet

Send Article to a Friend

Twitter has unveiled an amusing new tool that lets users see the first tweet anyone posted. Mine (@adamengst) linked to a historically interesting pre-App Store article, @tonyaengst was paying attention to her to-do list and hydration (some things never change!), @lymond’s Twitter account outlasted his job, @GlennF was eerily prescient, @joekissell was unsurprisingly preoccupied with email, and @Moltz was predicting the end of Twitter. Oh, and Senator @BarackObama was anticipating the end of the war in Iraq. Link to other great ones in the comments!favicon follow link
