In our coverage of Mac OS 8's contextual menu capabilities in Of Mice and Menus (TidBITS 398), we neglected to mention Mark Aiken's PowerMenu. The $15 shareware utility adds contextual menu plug-ins to Mac OS 8, and provides its particular contextual menu commands, through an extension, to machines running System 7.1 or later and 68040-based Macs running Mac OS 8. PowerMenu speeds launching applications and some administrative Finder tasks. The download is 333K.
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
