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.

Action Menus for Free

Action Menus for Free -- For a limited (though unspecified) amount of time, Power On Software is giving the Macintosh community a holiday gift of their $30 menu utility Action Menus (download version only, and one copy per person). With Action Menus, you can create custom menus; populate them with files, folders, and volumes; use a variety of automatically generated menus of recent, favorite, and frequently used files, folders and servers; assign keyboard shortcuts to any menu items; and more. Action Menus works under Mac OS 8.6 through 9.2, as well as in Mac OS X's Classic mode. I've long been fond of Action Menus, and it's worthwhile for anyone using Mac OS 9 heavily. If you're primarily using Mac OS X, take a moment to fill out Power On's Mac OS X survey so they can better prioritize bringing their utilities to Mac OS X. [ACE]
