Macintosh Software at Your Fingertips With Tweaks and Technology

37

Macintosh software as a widely used and readily available open-source has found different applications for the user from browsing, to emailing, documenting in office-suites, or video gaming. There is hi-end technology, which perfectly synchronizes user experience with quick, efficient performance – branding Macintosh software in the technology world.

To boost the performance of your Macintosh software, some tweaks and tips in the way of utilities embedded in the software package, can make your experience with Mac the best ever. Here is how.

Under configurations, you can tweak mouse-right-clicking, as Mac mouse does not support a right -click button. To simulate the right-click effect, you need to simply go to preferences and select ‘Tap to click’ and ‘secondary click’ that enables you to use right-click by using your two fingers simultaneously on the track-pad. Then there are the ‘Hot corners’ of Macintosh software where each corner of the screen can be specifically used to target some hotspot, to trigger an event when mouse moves over it.

This feature gives additional, attractive utility when used in combination with the ‘Expose’ and ‘Spaces’ feature. Expose zooms out the window on the screen and Spaces gives a lens-view of all multiple desktops and helps you create a hot corner with which you can drag any file, show the desktop and transfer to a different space.

The Safari Debugger comes in handy to enrich your Safari browsing experience. Though it does not come in a customizable feature giving only standard tools and views to the user, there are hacks and plug-ins available on the internet to make your Safari experience more personalized. There is a wide range of Macintosh software for multimedia such as Perian, VLC, Miro (for video playback) Songbird (an iTunes alternative which is available open-source). Apart from these Macintosh software also offers certain utilities for tweaks in performance of your PC. They are:

Apple Jack 1.4.2 used for troubleshooting boot-up problems in the system helping delete junk files from the hard disk. Macaroni 2.0.7 to self-run Unix-based script program when your Mac is idle or even switched off. Onyx, as a utility summing up the features of all of other utility tools. Tiger cache cleaner offers the number of options for file-cleaning that comes with Antivirus cleaner.
