ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut

For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.

You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.

El Camino Becomes Real

El Camino Becomes Real -- Even though Camino has been in development and available in one form or another for several years, the free, open-source Camino Web browser celebrated its 1.0 birth on Valentine's Day (14-Feb-06). With its roots in the same Mozilla development project that brought us Firefox and connections to Safari (Camino was originally called Chimera, and one of the primary Chimera developers went to Apple to work on the browser that became Safari), Camino offers the fast, lightweight Gecko rendering engine and a suite of modern browser features that may make it a prime candidate for your primary browser. Camino 1.0 supports tabbed browsing, pop-up and advertisement blocking, page security warnings, large picture scaling, a clean downloads experience, and broad media player support.

Users who are happy with Safari, Firefox, or another favorite browser may still want to try Camino for its excellent rendering speed and integration with Mac OS X. Camino 1.0 is a universal binary, optimized for use on both PowerPC and Intel Macs. It requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later, and is available as a standard download (14.2 MB) or a multilingual download (19.5 MB) that supports Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (for Brazil or Portugal), Russian, Slovak, and Swedish.
