NetNewsWire 2.1 Beta

Just downloaded and installed the newest version of NetNewsWire 2.1 Beta. In the first 5 seconds it solved one of my most annoying problems with prior versions. When you click on a link for more… NetNewsWire opens a new tab which is really a session of Safari.

Since I rarely go through and close all these windows they tend to build up often I’ll have 50 to 100 tabs opening. In prior versions when things got slow I’d chose

Window > Close All Tabs

. That worked fine, but it would launch the dreaded spinning beach ball and take at least 2-3 minutes to finish. Annoying, but I eventually got used to it.

I just closed 68+ windows in 2 seconds. Very nice. (And I still haven’t tried out the real power feature, syncing online through NewsGator.)
