Forwarding Address: OS X

Wednesday, July 30, 2003

And now a Cult of LaunchBar™ update: 3.2.12 has been released and it has some minor updates, but one that I feel is important.

  • The "Default Web Browser" and "Default Email Reader" preference settings have been removed. Please use the corresponding settings in System Preferences instead, or use the "Open with Application" setting of your LaunchBar configuration.

It's nice to see apps, especially one as vital to me as LaunchBar, use things in the OS that make their life easier to make my life easier. It is such a pain to have every app have it's own way of figuring out what the default net app is. Remember the days before Internet Config? Pah you say, it's not like it takes a lot of time to set preferences. True, but a few seconds here and a few seconds there and pretty soon you are talking more than a few seconds.
