Opening a Folder from the Dock

Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.

Google Serving Itself DMCA Takedown Notices on Chrome Videos?

Send Article to a Friend

Update: It's all working now, so take a look at the videos to get a sense of what Chrome can do. -Adam

So I decided that even if Google's new Chrome Web browser is available only for Windows right now, I should take a look through the feature videos to get a feel for what's forthcoming for Mac users.

"One box for everything." Sounds great. -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Gee, I wonder if Google served itself a DMCA takedown notice on the Tolkien reference.

"New Tab page." I'm in favor of that. -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Hmm, perhaps Chrome's tabs are a bit too kinky for YouTube.

"Application shortcuts." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Grr...

"Dynamic tabs." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." -click- "We're sorry, this video is no longer available." Oh, never mind.


Maybe I'll try again in a few minutes.
