Internet Explorer 5.2.1 Released -- In a singularly unhelpful move, Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 5.2.1 for Mac OS X with absolutely no indication of what has changed. Installing Internet Explorer 5.2.1 did require quitting all running applications, which seems unnecessary, but it didn't change my home page setting this time (others have reported differently). We presume Microsoft fixed a bug or two, but without release notes of any sort, it's impossible to recommend the update either way. I'd encourage Microsoft to read "The Seven Deadly Product Release Sins" in TidBITS-491. [ACE]
Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008
If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.
