Jeremy's CSM Updated -- Jeremy Kezer has released version 1.6.4 of Jeremy's Control Strip Modules, a $10 shareware collection of tiny, helpful tools. These tools consist of both new and replacement control strip modules for Apple's Control Strip, that ubiquitous utility that made its debut on PowerBooks a few years ago and is now available for desktop computers as well. Although many of Jeremy's modules are useful only on PowerBooks (including a revised temperature module that better keeps track of the computer and battery temperatures, plus a module that predicts how much battery time remains) version 1.6.4 also offers a revised AppleTalk module that improves handling of File Sharing, an easy pop-up menu of Open Transport TCP/IP configurations, and an improved speaker volume control.

Open Links from Mail in the Background
Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.
