At least in Terminal.app you can hold down option while clicking to jump within your current line (that actually means just the line, so if your current prompt is so long that it wraps to a second line of input you'll have to option-click to the beginning of the "second" line and then hop with the arrow keys to the "first" line where you can option-click ...

There's a reason why Apple appears to onlookers to be so anti-Flash, and it's because Flash sucks on Macs (it may also suck on other OSs, but I don't use them enough to be knowledgeable). What to do about it depends on what browser you use (your question doesn't say, as Mozilla's Plugin Check isn't FF-only): Safari - the answer is ClickToFlash. Honestly, ...

There are two choices available right now: Photomatix Hydra You should try both and see which matches your “taste” better :)

Try TotalTerminal (http://totalterminal.binaryage.com/). It's by the author of Visor, but doesn't require SIMBL to function. And it works flawlessly on Lion.

Last.fm and its API opened to developers gave birth to some nice web applications. Of course, you must have an account (free) and scrobble your songs to benefit from them. Two of them related to analytics (I'm not a specialist, I guess there must be other ones) : http://www.mymusichabits.com/visualize/cosmokraymer ...

In Mac's mail app you have got the option to create a 'smart mailbox'. This allows you for example to only view unread emails. It can even do that over multiple mailboxes. Sample rule for unread messages of today (taken from makeusof.com): If you just want to have the unread messages always on top, there's a sort option for that in the menu between Edit ...

Problematic uses of terminology Where Oracle describes first Java for "your operating system" then "for your computer", the download is more accurately only for things that use the Internet plug-in: jre-7u13-macosx-x64.dmg installs what's required for that plug-in, but for things that use Java without the plug-in, this installer from Oracle does ...

You need Safari 6.1 or newer Enable Debug menu defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu -bool true Set "Use Per-tab web processes" and "Show Web process IDs in page titles" to on.

There's also JavaScript Blocker.

Installing java won't have much effect on battery life. I don't think installing Flash will have much effect either. Where the issue is is when you hit a website with badly written flash (and to a very much less extent Java) where the animation takes up CPU but you can just leave these sites - you will be no worse off than not installing. Java is now ...

Flash on the Mac is the single-largest cause of Safari crashes. That's just the way it is.

This is a known issue and the author doesn't plan to fix it. I encourage someone to go further and implement it because personally I don't use fullscreen apps right now and I don't plan to fix this anytime soon. Luckily, there is a workaround described by vvlad. As an workaround you can set LSUIElement in Terminal's Info.plist It has several ...

Mail.app has the ability to flag in red any e-mail address (in the To, CC, BCC fields, or From pull-down menu) that does not match a particular domain ending. If you go to Mail -> preferences -> Composing and enter your primarydomain.com in the "Mark addresses not ending in:" field. I use this all the time for exactly what you are asking for. if ...

You can see still browse resources in the web inspector. To download a file, you can copy the URL from the right sidebar, paste it on the location bar, and press ⌥↩. The web inspector can be shown by pressing ⌥⌘I if you've enabled showing the develop menu in the advanced preferences.

I did some digging and documented my findings. The plug-in is used to produce the below dialog. It can be triggered by Apple from inside any other web browser. It is unclear when and where this is used.

I was having a very similar issue, all video or jpg image files were replaced by the "Missing Plug-in" in any email received or sent. After upgrading to the latest Java, deleting the java plist file, repairing permissions, and numerous other suggested solutions from various websites, I downloaded from Apple and installed the latest OSX 10.7.5 "combo" update. ...

A quick-fix way to avoid this error is to Control-click on the Mail toolbar, select Customize Toolbar ... and instead of accepting the Apple default where Reply, Reply All and Forward are joined in one big button, choose each one singly, dragging them to the toolbar as a single button, spacing them widely and not contiguous at all ... and Show Icon and Text ...

It appears Spotlight does not make use of Address Book plug-ins. Extra menu items added by Skype also fail to appear in the Spotlight preview. It is worth providing feedback to Apple asking for this functionality to be added. It would greatly improve Spotlight. Context Menu in Contacts.app: Context Menu of Contact in Spotlight:

I'm not super familiar with NoScript, but from a quick glance at the site, I can think of two good starting points - how useful they are will depend on which features of NoScript you make use of. ClickToPlugin is a great plugin blocker, pretty configurable, and it also has a fantastic h.264 replacement for Flash video. It substitutes h.264 video with a nice ...

The hotkey window in iTerm2 works well for this, but with one catch - it only works if iterm2 is open (it doesn't have to be focused or in the foreground, but it must be running).

I don't know of anything that will do all of what you want, but there is this app that will give you some stats on your library.

Flash crashed so often for me, I have gone flash free and only use flash in Google Chrome browser. Google installs flash within that one app, updates flash behind the scenes and Safari hasn't crashed once in 6 months. I would recommend three useful and stable Safari extensions if you disable flash in Safari: YouTube5 HTML5 Audio H.264 Flickr Video

In my book, Adobe Flash is always the first culprit for issues with browser stability and responsiveness. Try installing ClickToFlash and see if that helps things.

The cheapest option is to use quartz composer to assemble the individual clips and mix them down. It is not designed like iMovie or Final Cut Express with shortcuts and ready build transitions, but it is free with Xcode 3. You have to register and agree to Apple's developer tools restrictions before downloading Xcode 3. You want the free program at the ...

You can easily switch accounts from the pop-up in a new mail message, just below the CC or BCC field and just above the body of the message: I have multiple addresses from not just multiple domains but also within one domain, so the clever answer with highlighting different domains with colour does not work for me. To avoiding hassles sending from the ...

Unfortunately iMovie doesn't take plugins. Best bet is external software OR Final Cut Pro 7 has numerous plugins that reduce noise and grain, but they are all very expensive.

For what it’s worth, I’ve checked both the Develop menu and the Debug menu in the latest Safari.app (Version 5.1.4 / 7534.54.16), and couldn’t find any helpful features. Develop menu: Debug menu: The debug menu can be enabled using the following command: defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu -bool true

You can't talk Eclipse into treating app bundles as files. Mac apps are actually "bundles", which are special folders, not files. The Finder treats them as files, but anything that uses lower-level file system APIs will see a .app file as the folder it actually is. If you look at the appify script on Github, you can see that just making a few plain ...
