Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

Hail an iCab

Send Article to a Friend

Hail an iCab -- We generally don't comment on preview releases of software in TidBITS, but we'll make an exception for iCab, a new Web browser from a German programming team led by Alexander Clauss and derived from a project for Atari systems. Available for PowerPC-based Macs, iCab features svelte system requirements, needing under 2 MB of disk space, less than 2 MB of RAM (with Virtual Memory or RAM Doubler; 4 MB without), and System 7.5 or higher. But that's just the beginning: iCab offers support for HTML 4.0, Java applets via Apple's Macintosh Runtime for Java (see TidBITS-467), sound and music via QuickTime, and support for contextual menus and Mac OS 8.5 features like Navigation Services - all with sprightly performance. iCab also offers features missing in the gorillas of the Web browsing world, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator (see TidBITS-465), including HTML error checking; a search feature that can hunt through local files, current Web pages, or send queries to remote search engines; connection logging; password and cookie management; and a sure-to-be-controversial image filter that can be used to block Web advertisements.

iCab is a little rough around the edges - it often wraps text oddly, doesn't yet support JavaScript, Cascading Style Sheets, or browser plug-ins (so far as I can determine), seems to have trouble with some HTML forms, and isn't particularly stable on my Macs - but neither are any other Web browsers. Preview releases of iCab that should run through mid-April are available in German and (just recently) English; each is about an 800K download. The final version of iCab should be shareware priced at about U.S. $30. [GD]
