Open Links from Apple Mail in the Background

If an email message in Mail includes a Web link which you'd prefer to check out after you've read all your mail, and you don't want to hunt for the link later, Command-click the link in the message to open a browser window in the background. Mail remains the foreground application, and the browser window can wait till you're ready.

Programs that report system info like Now Profile and TattleTale will also use the new Quadra name." [The enabler is available on <ftp.apple.com> in:

ftp://ftp.apple.com/dts/mac/sys.soft/ 7.1.system.enablers/

Apple says only that version 1.1 adds support for the Quadra 660AV and doesn't provide any other details, although Ric Ford reported in MacWEEK that it included "other, undocumented fixes as well." -Adam]
