Enabling Auto Spelling Correction in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, the automatic spelling correction in applications is not usually activated by default. To turn it on, make sure the cursor's insertion point is somewhere where text can be entered, and either choose Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically or, if the Edit menu's submenu doesn't have what you need, Control-click where you're typing and choose Spelling and Grammar > Correct Spelling Automatically from the contextual menu that appears. The latter approach is particularly likely to be necessary in Safari and other WebKit-based applications, like Mailplane.

Web Confidential 1.3 Adds Keychain Support -- Alco Blom has quietly released Web Confidential 1.3, the latest version of his $20 shareware utility for securely storing passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive data (see "Web Confidential: Securing Information of All Sorts" in TidBITS-441). Web Confidential 1.3 adds support for the Keychain in the forthcoming Mac OS 9 and features an encryption algorithm that's even stronger than that in previous versions. Also new is balloon help in the Preferences window, support for iCab, and a Revert Card command. Version 1.3 is a free upgrade for registered users and is a 643K download. [ACE]
