Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

Other improvements include enhanced finding and replacing of text, an easy way to check for new versions of the application, page-specific links between ConceptDraw documents, new shortcuts for zooming documents, improved Copy/Paste support, better support for Mac OS X interface standards and file types, and more. The update is free to registered users; ConceptDraw 1.8 is a 2.6 MB download, whereas ConceptDraw Professional is a 3.0 MB download. [ACE]
