Todd Sharp has put together a very short slide deck (12 slides) detailing reasons why you should attend CFUnited 2009 in Leesburg, Virginia. The deck has information about where and when the conference will take place, video of the conference venue, what valuable content you can expect, and more. If you're on the fence about attending I recommend taking 3 minutes to view Todd's slide deck.

This is one of those blog posts where 99% of you will say "Huh, he's actually blogging about this?" It's true this might be one of the easiest things in the world to figure out but for those who've asked me already, and for those who might in the future, here's how you activate Safari's developer tools.

Open Safari's preferences window (command + comma) and click on the Advanced tab in the upper right. At the bottom of the resulting screen there will be a checkbox you can click to activate the developer tools. This will allow a new "Develop" option to show in Safari's menu bar.

Now that you have the tools activated read this overview and this detailed article to ensure you're getting the most from the Safari 4.

Safari 4 Beta Tab Hacks

Posted by Aaron West at 8:00 AM in Hacks, Mac

I've been running Safari 4 beta for a few weeks now and am quite happy with it. It's much faster than Firefox on Mac, has a smaller visual footprint, and includes a great set of developer tools. Some people aren't too happy with some of the new tab features though. Have no fear, Rob Griffiths over at Macworld put together a screencast that shows you how to move the new tab bar from the top of Safari window to its original position. Rob also shows how to hack the active tab color or the inactive tabs colors to make either stand out.

Check it out here.
