Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

Send Article to a Friend

QuicKeys Revs for Mac OS 8 -- After installing Mac OS 8, QuicKeys users have encountered problems with installed contextual menu commands not appearing on menus and with the Close Window and Zoom Window Mousies failing. Although CE Software provided workarounds that helped with these issues to varying degrees, a fix is now at hand in the form of the QuicKeys 3.5.2r1 updater, which corrects these problems in QuicKeys 3.5.2. CE's download page links to the new updater and to software for updating 3.5 to 3.5.2. [TJE]
