Increase Boom Volume Quickly

If you're using Boom to increase the volume on your Mac, you can change the amount to which Boom increases the volume quickly in two ways. Either use the slider available from Boom's menu bar icon, or enable and set hotkeys (Command-Shift-+ and Command-Shift-- by default). Then, when you need that push to 11, more volume is available at the click of the mouse or tap of the keyboard.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0a

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0a -- Although I use a variety of browsers to view and test Web sites, I'm using Microsoft's Internet Explorer with increasing regularity. With the release of version 3.0a (PowerPC-only, alas) last week, Microsoft has resolved problems with deleting cache files, repeatedly reloading some Web pages, Challenge Response Protocol (used when accessing secured pages), and loading Java under MacTCP. Minimum and full install versions are available, ranging in size from 2.1 MB to nearly 8 MB. [JLC]
