View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

Internet arachnids will want to check out the public beta release of a new World-Wide Web browser from Mosaic Communications <info@mcom.com>, the company formed from a number of the original developers of Mosaic. I've used their program, Mosaic NetScape, for about a week now, and I'm impressed with its speed, features, and reliability. It comes in versions for Macintosh, Windows, and several flavors of Unix.
