  1. Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll probably use Safari for my trusted sites and Firefox whenever I search the web visiting all kinds of strange, unsafe sites. It would be great if a future version of Safari (v3.0 maybe) had a built-in feature similar to Firefox' NoScript extension. The problem is, with all the Web 2.0 stuff going on nowadays having JavaScript disabled almost always breaks a lot of functionality.
  2. OK, I tried it for a while now and I am really disappointed. It causes a lot of problems. I uninstalled it.
  3. That looks pretty good. Thanks for your help.
  4. Hello, First of all, I couldn't think of a better title, I hope it is descriptive enough. Here's the thing: I am looking for some sort of plug-in for Safari or Camino that lets me block JavaScript scripts on every site except the ones I trust. I am currently using Firefox with the NoScript extension. However, I hate Firefox for a number of reasons. I would gladly switch back to Safari or Camino if there was such a plug-in. I tried Google, but I haven't been able to forge a search term that yielded the desired results, so I was hoping that you guys could help me out here. Is there such a thing and if that's the case where can I find it? Thanks in advance. ~ Milan ~ P.S.: If anything is unclear, tell me so. I will be happy to rephrase my request.

    ip scanner

    You could just ping the broadcast ip and see who responds!
  6. Here are my two cents on the subject "web browsers"! I think which browser is the best is very subjective. It depends on your needs. I don't do any syncronising and I rarely need Private Browsing so I am not dependent on Safari. I use Camino because I think it looks better than Safari and it is much more snappier on my Mac. It is also very good at organizing your bookmarks (I love the ability to add menu spacers into my bookmark menu). Firefox is ugly and slow. I have to admit that I never tried Opera. Maybe I'll do that some time. And Internet Explorer doesn't even enter the equation. Enough said...

    questioning itunes

    I monitored my network traffic while browsing the iTMS and indeed whenever I click on something iTunes contacts metrics.apple.com. It's some sort of HTTP request and along with it iTunes sends cookies that contain cryptic stuff I don't know what it means. I then blocked every connection to metrics.apple.com and tried browsing the iTMS again. I didn't notice any difference. (I didn't try logging in or buying something, though)

    Try logKext by FSB Software!

    Use the dock with your keyboard

    You can even sort your Dock items via keyboard. Press Ctrl-F3 then hold down the option key and use the left and the right arrow to move the selected item through the Dock.

    minimize option disappear?

    I had this problem a few times. Restarting the Finder (or the app it occured in) always solved the issue. ~milan

    Completely useless tricks!

    Open a browser window in Safari, open Terminal, type "killall Dock", don't hit return yet, move your Terminal window so that you can see the browser window well, hold down shift (shift+control for extra slowmode), hit the minimize button of the Safari window in the background, now when the window is half "sucked in" hit return to execute the command we typed previously. The window will freeze and you can do stuff with it (Moving! Scrolling!, Selecting!, Browsing?). Have fun! ~milan

    Vulnerability statistics for Mac and Windows

    Yeah, you're right. I think there is no OS you cannot screw up. It's just that Windows is much easier screwed up than Mac OS X. In other words, for an average user it is easier to secure OS X than XP. ~milan

    Vulnerability statistics for Mac and Windows

    The raw numbers do not show how secure an OS is. No analysis has been done. This guy hasn't taken account of bundles or time to patch. Apache, MySQL and SquirrelMail, for example, are not enabled by default in Mac OS X. The only unpatched vulnerability in Mac OS X is the Meta data shell script execution flaw (which has actually been fixed by Security Update 2006-001). Windows XP has three unpatched vulnerabilities. One of them is (if I interpret the statistics correctly) unpatched for more than 2 years. Those are just examples that you cannot judge the security of one of those OSs withoust further analysis. ~milan

    Thoughts on FileValut?

    To prevent that someone resets your password via the install CD set an Open Firmware password. ~milan

    Possible trojan virus

    So what have we learned: Before double-clicking a file you loaded from an untrusted source take at least a quick look at the info box to make sure it's not an executable.
