I have installed tons of RAM (Random Access Memory) in Mac computers over the years. I could probably do it blindfolded. While interacting with a friend of mine I noted her MacBook Pro was a bit sluggish. I checked the machine and it only had 4GB of RAM. I suggested that we increase the RAM in the MBP for more responsiveness.
I continue to switch back and forth between Google Chrome and Safari web browsers. They both have there strong points and their features. With the release of Mavericks OS 10.9.2 Safari’s speed has been improved somewhat to where it is almost as fast as Chrome. So I am using Safari for a while. But, I discovered something in Chrome that may interest you.
This is a good article on how to setup custom keyboard commands in OS X. If you have ever been interested in what you can do so setup your own keyboard commands I would give this read. It is a bit technical, but not too bad really. I have created a couple of extra keyboard commands in some of my apps.
Apple’s Safari web browser has some nice features that other Mac browsers do not have, like Top Sites. If you have not changed the Safari home page on your Mac then Safari defaults to the Top Sites window when you open it. If you have another home page then you can access Top Sites by clicking on the small icon that looks like a grid in the upper left corner of the menu bar.
Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away I began my Macintosh experience using a Mac SE (the 9” screen). Not soon after I discovered a very cool Apple app called Hypercard. People used this app for years (some may still be using it) to design small applications they and their friends could use on their Macs. I played around with it some, but did not stick with it.
I am trying to setup a Facebook page for my Macessence blog. I finally got a WordPress Facebook plugin to post articles to the Facebook Macessence page. It is rather convoluted to say the least, but after great trial and error it works. I have gotten to this point so far. You have to be logged into Facebook. Go check it out.
