View Extra Bluetooth Details in Snow Leopard

In Snow Leopard, Option-click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar to view a few additional items in the Bluetooth menu. Specifically, it enables you to open three utility applications: Bluetooth Explorer, Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility, and PacketLogger. These are likely of interest primarily to experts, but if you're having troubles with Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Diagnostic Utility in particular may be useful. (These tools are available only if you've installed Apple's Developer Tools.)

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]
