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]
Open Links from Mail in the Background
Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.
