Todd Ditchendorf, the developer of Fluid, has entered the web browsing space with Cruz. Featuring an open plug-in architecture, global keyboard shortcuts, sidebar windows, session restore, TinyURL link creation, and automatic software updates, Cruz looks like an interesting addition to the browser arena.
I’ve been playing with Cruz for a couple of days, and it seems fairly stable for the little web browsing I’ve thrown at it. I did create a right-side sidebar for Hahlo, the excellent Twitter web app optimized for the iPhone. It’s been an interesting and fun experiment so far, and I encourage Mac users to check Cruz out.
Title is pretty self-explanatory. The advice at the end regarding used cars is dead on. My next door neighbor growing up was a mechanic, with his own shop, and my dad had him look at my first car, and a couple of others he’d picked out. (My dad has a knack for finding great used cars.) It’s never a bad idea to have a mechanic not affiliated with a dealership/brand, and most importantly, one you can trust, in your contact list.posted on October 27, 2008 2:01 AM
