Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

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

Connectix today announced the shipment of Virtual PC 2.0, its software-based Pentium emulator that enables users to run operating systems and applications based on the Intel architecture, including Windows, MS-DOS, and NeXTstep. The new version increases performance by up to 40 percent over Virtual PC 1.0 (see "Virtual PC: Slow But Well Worth the Wait" in TidBITS 397), adds drag & drop file transfer, and copy and paste between Mac and PC applications. PC gamers with fast Macs (G3 recommended) can take advantage of Virtual PC's built-in support for Microsoft DirectX technology, which includes graphics, stereo sound, and joystick support. Virtual PC 2.0 is expected to sell for $145 for the Windows 95 version, and $49 for the PC-DOS version, and is available through most online and catalog retailers. Upgrades from Virtual PC 1.0 are available for about $35.
