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.)

This deal should make Power Computing's machines more attractive in business settings, where built-in calendar, scheduling, and contact management are significant issues; however, Now Utilities should be attractive to individual Mac users as well.
