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]
Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily
Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.
