Access 'Net Resources Directly from Finder
CyberFinder, a new product, integrates Internet bookmark management into the Mac's Finder.
Savvy educators can use its functions to integrate online resources directly into computer-based curriculum materials.
One creates and stores a "bookmark" icon, which points to any type of resource on the Internet: Web pages, FTP sites, Usenet newsgroups, e-mail addresses and more.
When a user double-clicks a bookmark icon in the Finder, CyberFinder launches the appropriate application and takes the user to the location specified by the bookmark, giving convenient, virtually transparent access to Internet locations.
