Open Links from Mail in the Background

Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.

Vote in the 2007 TidBITS Gift Guide Survey

Send Article to a Friend

Thanks to TidBITS readers near and far, we've collected all sorts of weird and wonderful holiday gift ideas, along with a few painfully obvious ones (iPhone, anyone?). We spent the last few days arranging them into categories, tapping Twitterspace for a few ideas to flesh it all out, and creating the 2007 TidBITS Gift Guide Survey, which is now open for voting.

So please, come and rate the gift ideas about which you have an opinion (and if you don't have an opinion, just skip that line in the survey). We'll collect votes through at least the end of the week such that we can publish the final results by 10-Dec-07.
