Open Links from Mail in the Background

Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.

Paul Durrant <pdurrant@cix.compulink.co.uk> and Steve Dobbs <sdobbs@picayune.coginst.uwf.edu> note that the slightly smaller screen in the MessagePad 110 is not a problem, as mentioned in TidBITS #218, but in fact an excellent reminder to developers to check for screen size at runtime rather than assuming a certain size. As Paul says, "Taking advantage of the capability to write flexible software is good for the user, whose software doesn't break, and for the developer, who doesn't have to rush out tweaked versions."
