    I like Transmission, it's the only thing right now that's FAST for Intel Macs.
    the back of our computer looks better than the front of theirs

    In System Preferences>Accounts, does your account say Admin under your name?

    is there a way to rename your computer? (please tell me there is...)

    is safari better than firefox, or any other good browser?

    is there someway to make the mouse ball button open the link to whatever you clicked on in a tab, as in firefox?

    is there any way to make the side buttons on the mighty mouse to go forward and back in a browser?


    thank youuuuu

    1. I have also used Azerus and it is a very easy to use program.

    2. To change the name of your computer, go to System Preferences, Sharing, and at the top you should see Computer's Name. (I am pretty sure this changes the computer's name for everything not just for Sharing, but I may be wrong. EDIT: This may not be what your looking for also since it doesn't change the name of the Home folder)

    3. I personally have never gotten use to Firefox, there are several features that I liked, such as the ability to change what the built in search bar uses to search, IMDB, Google, Yahoo etc. Other than that I didn't notice that big of difference in speed and I found that I never used any of the add ons besides changing the look of Firefox to a more Safari look. But overall I prefer Safari.
