Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview

If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.

The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

TidBITS Search Engine Online -- As promised, we've put the winner of our Search Engine Shootout online (see TidBITS-368, TidBITS-379, and TidBITS-380). The custom Apple e.g. implementation currently runs on a Power Macintosh 7100/80 with 24 MB of RAM. This Mac has a 56K frame relay Internet connection instead of the full T1 our main Web server enjoys, so we'll be curious to watch the performance. If you want to bookmark the search page, use the URL below rather than where you end up when you follow the link - we may move things around over time. [ACE]
