Poll Preview: Browser Brouhaha -- This week's release of Internet Explorer 5.0 for the Mac (see review below) and Netscape's recent announcement that the Netscape 6 (possibly not for the Mac, to judge from comments on TidBITS Talk) would be available in beta within a month raises that perennial question: Which Macintosh Web browsers do you use on a regular basis? We'll be especially curious to compare the results of this poll to our Web logs. Make sure your usage patterns are represented this week on our home page! [ACE]
New Documents in Snow Leopard's TextEdit
In the Snow Leopard version of TextEdit, you can now create a new document by Control-clicking TextEdit's Dock icon (when it's running), and choosing New Document from the pop-up menu. This isn't a major feature, of course, since you can also just press Command-N while in TextEdit, but consider Control-clicking other applications' Dock icons to see what functions they might make available.
