Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail.

Send Article to a Friend

Default Folder X 1.5 Mixes with Cocoa -- St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 1.5, its invaluable enhancement for Mac OS X Open and Save dialogs. Along with a few bug fixes, this version adds the previously missing compatibility with Cocoa applications and works with Bare Bones Software's Super Get Info to display information about files. Default Folder 1.5 also works with an upcoming release of Keyboard Maestro to use key commands when switching folders in file dialogs. Default Folder X 1.5 is a free update to users of previous versions; it's a 1.7 MB download. [JLC]
