    Specs:
    iMac OSX 10.5 Leopard
    Leopard - Hovering over links, possible? Easy method to copy/paste?
    Couple of newbie questions here:

    Is it possible to change the settings for how links are displayed so that they are only underlined when the pointer hovers over them? I'd much prefer that option over viewing webpages where every link is underlined.

    Also, is there an easier method to using the copy/paste function other than going to the Edit icon? I miss not being able to do a simple right click to copy/paste as I did with XP.

    Other than these two issues I'm loving my new iMac thus far. Wish I would have gotten an Apple a long time ago.

    I do not know about the link thing, but to copy and paste you can also use command-C to Copy and command-V to paste.
    I'm A Mac. And I Work Better Then A PC.

    In Firefox, yes. In Safari, this would require a custom .css file.

    Drag-and drop, Command-C, or enable the secondary button in the Mouse pane of System Preferences

    I also noticed after that that Safari displays the address in the bottom left.
