Internet arachnids will want to check out the public beta release of a new World-Wide Web browser from Mosaic Communications <firstname.lastname@example.org>, 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.

Avoid Simple Typos
If, like me, you find yourself typing 2911 in place of 2011 entirely too often, you can have Mac OS X (either Lion or Snow Leopard) fix such typos for you automatically. Just open the Language & Text pane of System Preferences, click the Text button at the top, and then add a text substitution by clicking the + button underneath the list. It won't work everywhere (for that you'll want a utility like Smile's TextExpander), but it should work in applications like Pages and TextEdit, and in Save dialog boxes.
