Alco Blom has released a new version of his useful password storage program Web Confidential, reviewed in "Web Confidential: Securing Information of All Sorts" in TidBITS 441. Version 1.0.2 addresses some of our minor concerns, including support for the arrow keys in the Note field and some confusing category labels. It also groups the categories for easier visual parsing, fixes a crash related to the Platinum appearance being turned off, and fixes a bug that sometimes caused changes to be lost on save. To update from a previous version, download the new 384K package, install just the application, and replace your previous application.
Turn Off Filename Extension Warning
In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.
