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.

CFM-68K 4.0 -- Apple has released version 4.0 of the CFM-68K Runtime Enabler, which corrects "all known problems" with previous versions of the component (see TidBITS-356). CFM-68K allows applications that require the Code Fragment Manager (like LaserWriter 8.4, Cyberdog, AOL 3.0, and Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0) to run on 68K machines. Now that a final version of CFM-68K is available, releases of CFM applications for 68K machines should appear shortly. [JLC]
