New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit

In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.

Fluid 1.8.2

Send Article to a Friend

Todd Ditchendorf has released version 1.8.2 of Fluid, the site-specific browser that enables you to turn Web apps and sites into Mac apps. The update improves support for both multiple displays and userscripts, and ensures that Web Page Zoom persists across launches. It also fixes JavaScript and CSS syntax highlighting, as well as some code completion features in the Userscript and Userstyle editors — two features that become available when you purchase a full license for $4.99. A Fluid license also enables you to create apps with separate cookie storage and pin apps to the menu bar. (Free or $4.99 new, free update, 3.5 MB, release notes)
