Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

 
 

HTML Tools Update

Send Article to a Friend

HTML Tools Update -- Although my seven-part HTML series ended last week, HTML fans should note that GoLive Systems has released CyberStudio 2.0, a free downloadable upgrade ($19 for a physical package) with many small changes plus noticeable ones like a spelling checker and strong support for frames. Also, Bare Bones Software has just released BBEdit 4.5, which features much improved HTML tables support, support for Mac OS 8 contextual menus, and enhanced backup capabilities. Upgrades for owners of BBEdit 2.5 and later cost $39, though upgrades are free for those who purchased BBEdit after 01-Jun-97. [TJE]
