BBEdit Moves to 4.5.3 -- Bare Bones Software last week released a free updater for BBEdit 4.5, the commercial version of the company's popular text and HTML editor. The 4.5.3 update offers improvements to BBEdit's built-in FTP capabilities and Find Differences functionality, plus a number of minor bug fixes. It's either a 2.7 MB (BinHex) or 1.9 MB (MacBinary) download. [ACE]
Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly
This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.
