Internet Explorer 2.1b1 -- Microsoft has released its first public beta of Internet Explorer 2.1 for Macintosh. This new release supports Netscape frames (but not floating frames), offers much improved History and Favorites listings, has expanded preferences (including the welcome ability to turn off frames and plug-ins), and comes with built-in support for QuickTime VR movies. Internet Explorer 2.1b1 is available in PowerPC, 68K, and fat binary versions from Microsoft's Web site. Oh, and the annoying "Homage to Windows 95" animated logo is finally gone! [GD]
Set Per-Folder Views in the Finder
Tired of navigating to a particular folder and having to switch to List View every time? With Finder in Leopard, you can set viewing preference for each individual folder. Just navigate to it, and set the view the way you want (Column, List, Icon, or Cover Flow). Then choose View > Show View Options (Command-J) and in the window that appears, select the Always Open In... checkbox.
