Web Confidential 1.2 Adds Contextual Menu Support -- Alco Blom has released version 1.2 of Web Confidential, his $35 shareware utility for securely storing confidential information using 448-bit encryption (see "Web Confidential: Securing Information of All Sorts" in TidBITS-441). Version 1.2 adds a number of preferences for saving automatically, confirming deletions, and sorting entries. It also includes a Contextual Menu Manager (CMM) plug-in that eases entry of data into Web Confidential for users of Mac OS 8.0 or higher. First install the plug-in (and Apple Data Detectors, which enable contextual menus in any application), then Control-click selected text and choose a menu item to transfer the selected text to one of the fields of a Web Confidential card. Version 1.2 is free to registered users and is a 424K download. [ACE]
