Fluid Apps try to keep your browsing limited to the website or webapp you chose when you created the Fluid App. Therefore, any Fluid App will send you to your system default web browser (like Safari or Firefox) if you browse to a URL "outside" that website. Now, determining what constitutes a "website" is more black art than exact science. "Website" is in ...

Under the finder menu, choose 'Go' -> 'Connect to Server'. In the box that appears you need to type the path to the SMB server share. SMB stands for Server Message Block, which windows understands. The path would look like this... smb://ServerName/SharedFolder I have done this on OSX Tiger and Lion. There are many tutorials available, such as this one ...

Byword seems to do that by default: It's not really drag and drop, but you could also assign a shortcut to a script like this: tell application "Safari" to tell document 1 set the clipboard to "[" & name & "](" & URL & ")" end tell

I had the same problem and wrote a little AppleScript to handle this. You can find the app here: https://github.com/biafra23/Default-Fluids You need to make this script your default browser. This can be achieved with Safari: Menu -> Safari -> Preferences -> General -> Default web browser The source is in ...

Developer of Fluid here. The only way I know of to do this is with Choosy: http://www.choosyosx.com/

The point of this is to make the domain of the site you're visiting blatantly obvious. Many phishing scams will use URLs that look very similar, but not exactly identical to the site they're trying to mimic (using things like, for example, paypal.com.mysupersketchydomain.ru), and this technique (now used in most modern browsers) helps to mitigate that risk ...

Safari's reading list and iCloud works well to synchronize a list of URL between Macs and iOS devices. The Simplenote app and web app work well to let all your devices keep track of text documents. You only need to pay for the latter if you want enhanced features or avoid the advertisements that are minimal and generally very tasteful.

To determine the web site, you will need to intercept the network traffic travelling between your iPhone and your Internet Service Provider (ISP). To do this you need to set your phone to use WiFi and to pass network traffic through a proxy. Proxies include squid and Charles. A good proxy will offer log files and allow you to see server addresses and, if ...

You can tell Safari to open ttp URLs by adding this to ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.LaunchServices.plist and restarting (logging out and back in isn't enough). <dict> <key>LSHandlerRoleAll</key> <string>com.apple.Safari</string> <key>LSHandlerURLScheme</key> <string>ttp</string> ...

If you paste into an OS X app that accepts rich text input (i.e. not a web app like gmail), you'll get the title as text with the URL as the link to that text—try it in TextEdit. If you need the title and URL as plaintext, you could use an AppleScript like this one that will copy the URL and title of the active Safari tab to the clipboard (you may want to ...

Opening a New Terminal Interactively As of Mac OS X Lion 10.7, Terminal has a “New Terminal at Folder” Service you can enable in: System Preferences > Keyboard > Services > Files and Folders With this Service you can open a new terminal by selecting a folder or file path in any application and choosing this Service in the contextual menu (Control-Click or ...

You can simply drag the message from Mail.app to a folder to create the link you want. The link that is generated is automagically named using the subject line of the email message. Yes, there are many such situations where Mac OS will do the natural thing. You can also drag any message to TextEdit.app (as long as it's to an RTF document). Sadly, I haven't ...

I've used WinShortcutter in the past - seems to work OK. This will allow you to open Windows style UNC paths (\\servername\path\to\directory) when they appear in emails, etc.

I would suggest OpenDNS. You can apply it to your entire network using their name servers and block categories or specific URL's. Although the ad might show up as a frame to a 'Website Blocked' page from OpenDNS, you'll probably find it useful (it's free).

For a minute there I thought you were asking the same question again as last time. But realise now you want to know how to use Inspect Element to construct your own code. In the example you give: document.forms[WHATGOESHERE?].click() The WHATGOESHERE would be the form name. i.e document.forms['theFormName'].click() Your website in their wisdom has ...

I personally use Chrome, and there is a great (unofficial) extension, which allows you to set both the default size/resolution to use for downloads, but also gives you a choice for a different resolution for each video you visit. Extremely handy. I also use the YouTube Options Chrome extension to disable the initial buffering (so videos don't buffer until ...

Install the ClickToFlash extension in Safari. With the extension enabled you can right-click on any video in YouTube and choose "Download File", which downloads the underlying MP4 file. The plugin also has the side benefit of blocking Flash content by default, but if you don't want this functionality this plugin might not be for you.

I don't think it is possible to obtain the link to a specific episode, either from the iTunes app on iOS where you can browse the store, or from the iOS music app after if has already been downloaded. Often a direct link to the episode is included in the show notes that are included, but the built in apps have scant support for allowing you to actually view ...

This is how it would work on a Mac; I don't see a way of obtaining a podcast episode URL from within the built-in iTunes iPhone app. In the iTunes app, navigate to the podcast episode and copy the episode link by clicking the little triangle next to "FREE" in the right column: When the link is opened on the Web, you can see what specific episode was ...

Also, if you connect to the local domain, you can configure UNC paths to work in Mac OS X. You can connect to the domain by going to System Preferences>Users & Groups>Login Options and click the Join button next to Network Account Server. Type in the name of the domain and press enter. You can then click the Open Directory Utility button and select ...

This works from the command line: /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app/Contents/MacOS/Terminal /Users/ & Where /Users/ is the directory you want to set the working directory to.

I don't think it's much faster. I use youtube-dl from MacPorts or Homebrew. > youtube-dl -g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkmyLTPh3UY ...

The "http://" part of a URL defines the protocol to use when connecting to the resource. "Http" is reserved for hypertext/web-type stuff. Two ther protocols include "ftp://" for file transfers and "afp://" is Apple file protocol. Asking Safari to assume that "ttp://" should mean "http://" because someone who professes to know how to use a computer does not ...

Pastebot, while not iPad native, is excellent for pushing images/text and various other bits between a Mac and iOS device. If you're looking for a longer lasting solution, check out Instapaper.

From the screenshot, I noticed that you are pasting it into Messages.app. What I'll usually do to work around this annoyance is to paste using Option+Shift+Command+V. This works for most apps that takes more than just plain text input.

I'm quite pleased with Pinboard. There are a number of browser extensions and apps that work with the API.

The view from Chicago is below. The prices are in GBP. When I click on the View in iTunes link, the prices change to USD. Staying in my browser, if I change gb to us in your original URL, the prices change to USD but everything else seems to stay the same.

Despite the fact that this website has shitty code (too few IDs), something like : tell application "Safari" activate open location "http://rna.tbi.univie.ac.at/cgi-bin/RNAfold.cgi" delay 3 do JavaScript "document.forms['form'].submit()" in current tab of window 1 end tell should work. It looks for the last element of the first form in ...

The short answer is, you can't, and you don't want to. Every page on the web has an address, its URL. If the URL is not accurately input in the browser, the browser can't locate it or connect. If you'd like to learn more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_resource_locator Updated browsers can usually handle input of just the host name. So Safari ...
