Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

Netscape Releases Communicator 4.77 -- Netscape has released Communicator 4.77, a maintenance update that provides a few minor fixes to the company's older Web browser for the Mac (most of Netscape's development efforts are focused on Netscape 6 - see "Netscape 6 Arrives on Wobbly Legs" in TidBITS-556). The new version corrects a problem with bookmarks added to the Personal Toolbar, plus two JavaScript related issues: Command-clicking some JavaScript URLs wasn't always properly handled, and Communicator now always handles JavaScript URLs internally. The new version is a 14.7 MB download. [JLC]
