This week’s tools will allow you to view PDF’s in your browser, tweak colors in iCal and swap out that spinning beach ball…
This broswer plugin, installed in your “Internet Plugins” folder in your Library allows Internet Explorer or any other compatible browser (Netscape, Chimera) to display PDF files. It’s simple and works.
Having a hard time reading text in your iCal? This utility allows you to tweak the text colors for each calendar color. Now you can make your text more readable, or go extreme and push the limits of the Apple System Color Picker.
Feelings of loath are quickly associated with whatever animated icon Apple’s programers put in the OS to placate users while the Mac thinks. Now you can rotate your “wait cursor” whenever you feel like it.
Beachball is a straightforward and self-proclaimed “idiot proof” method for changing cursors. It comes with 10 different cursors and even a couple new arrows. The application comes with information on creating your own cursors that you can import into Beachball.
So, if nothing else, this week’s features should break up some of the monotony in your OS. Have a colorful week.
