Open Files with App Switcher

Using the Application Switcher to open files can sometimes be faster than hunting for an Application's window or searching through a jam packed Dock for an Application's icon. First grab your file, press Command-Tab, and then drop the file onto the desired application's icon to open it within that program.

Frontier 5.0 Alphas for Mac and Windows

Send Article to a Friend

Frontier 5.0 Alphas for Mac and Windows -- UserLand Software has released the first public alphas of Frontier 5.0 for the Mac and, for the first time ever, Windows. Frontier is a free integrated outlining tool/scripting language/object-oriented database that has gathered a loyal following on the Mac for its capability to tie applications together via powerful scripting. Recent releases have focused on helping webmasters maintain complex and frequently updated Web sites (see "Spinning the Web Part 5: New Frontiers" in TidBITS-389). If you use Frontier to maintain a Web site, note that significant changes were made to Frontier's Web site framework. Bear in mind that alpha releases aren't guaranteed to be stable and may not be feature complete. [ACE]
