Move to Top Shortcut in iPhone

On an iPhone, flicking all the way back up to the top of a long Web page can be a real drag. Instead, a single tap on the status bar moves you to the top of a page. (The status bar is where the clock is.) This tip also works in other apps, like Mail, Contacts, etc.

Internet Explorer 5.1.1 and OmniWeb 4.0 Arrive

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Explorer 5.1.1 and OmniWeb 4.0 Arrive -- Apple has delivered an update to the Microsoft Internet Explorer Web browser provided with Mac OS X. Internet Explorer 5.1.1 is still officially a preview version and is currently available only through the Software Update control panel in System Preferences; you can't download it from the Microsoft or Apple Web sites. Apple says Internet Explorer 5.1.1 improves the browser's reliability and provides better support for file downloading, among other enhancements. The software supports English, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Swedish.

Meanwhile, the Omni Group, long-time developers of software for the NeXT platform and, more recently, for Mac OS X Server and Mac OS X, released a final version of OmniWeb 4.0, their native Cocoa Web browser. OmniWeb has earned a reputation for offering better performance than Internet Explorer, which is a carbonized version of Microsoft's existing version of Internet Explorer. You can use OmniWeb for free, but buying $30 license will eliminate reminders that the software is unlicensed. [MHA]
