Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

Internet Explorer 2.1b1

Send Article to a Friend

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]
