Open URLs Quickly from BBEdit

If you're working on a bit of text (HTML or otherwise) in BBEdit, and you see a URL that you'd like to open, the fastest way is to Command-click it. Most BBEdit users probably already know this tip, but if you don't, it's a huge time-saver. (The same trick works in BBEdit's free little brother, TextWrangler.)

Poll Preview: Finder's Clickers -- Polls are easy - you can just register your opinion and be on your way. No one's getting off that easy with this week's quiz, which requires you to think a bit. Here's the question:

Starting from the desktop with no open windows and using only actions initiated with the mouse, what is the minimum number of clicks needed to both view the contents of the Startup Items folder and make an alias of it on the desktop? (This requires a version of the Mac OS released since late 1998.)

As always, for those people who take the quiz, the results page will explain just how you can come by the correct answer, and I'll bet that most people will learn something in the process. Give the quiz your best shot on our home page! [ACE]
