we have found a witch! can we burn her?!

10 Jul 2003

I’ve playing around with a lot of wee OS X software recently. There seems to be far more independent software developers for OS X than there ever was for OS9. A lot of it is downloaded, used once, and then never again. Some however, are just so darn useful that they might get a position on my dock.

Steven f (from panic) has created Web Desktop. This bizarre app, using the WebKit rendering engine from Safari 1.0, allows browsing on your desktop! I felt very strange using it, as if I was doing something naughty, but its great. Give it a go.

URL cleaner from Hivelogic has helped me solve the problem of the safari resources page not validating. It takes your messy urls and encodes them so that the validators don’t get confused. Simple, free and so useful.

Finally, there is free ruler. A accurate way of measuring screen pixels (can also do inches, picas and centimetres). Gone are the days of making a screenshot, opening it up in Photoshop and measuring it.

Clever people. Witchcraft must be involved…
