MacHeadlines 1.8 Splits into Pro and Lite -- Trexar Technologies has split MacHeadlines, its customizable scrolling ticker of Web site headlines (see "Trexar Releases MacHeadlines 1.7" in TidBITS-493), into two versions. MacHeadlines Pro 1.8 costs $20 shareware, improves the look of the floating ticker window, and enhances handling of numerous stock symbols. MacHeadlines Lite 1.8 is free and lacks only MacHeadlines Pro's site configuration and ticker appearance capabilities. Both programs are 430K downloads. [ACE]
Spin Through Toolbar View Options
Although many people never change their toolbars from the default settings, all standard toolbars on the Mac offer six states: icon only, text only, and icon and text, with all three coming in normal and small size. You can change them by choosing View > Customize Toolbar.
But there's a shortcut that makes it easier to check out each variant. Simply Command-click the toolbar lozenge at the upper right of a window, and the toolbar switches to the next view. Click it enough times, and you cycle back to the start.
