Tricks with Macintosh Netscape
Original of this page is here
To call up the Fish Cam were CTRL+OPT+Return (CTRL+ALT+F on a
PC). After some experimenting I found that CTRL+OPT+F has the
same result. window to take over my entire monitor, not even
leaving the Finder menu bar or Netscape's title bar on the
screen. This seemed like it could be useful, and I was obsessed
until I could duplicate his pounding, which in this case was
hitting CTRL+OPT+A. Pressing the same keys again reduced the
window back to normal. This was just the beginning.
After an extensive session of my own keyboard pounding I came
up with the following tricks. A few have a PC equivalent by
substituting the ALT key for the OPT key.
CTRL+OPT+HOME does the same thing with the screen that
CTRL+OPT+M yet again takes you to the Netscape Fish Cam.
If you want to pay a quick visit to the White house site type
CTRL+OPT+W. CTRL+OPT+L hides the vertical scroll bar and
CTRL+OPT+K hides the horizontal scroll bar (CTRL+ALT+S on a
CTRL+OPT+H or CTRL+OPT+Delete hides both scroll bars and
CTRL+OPT+J returns any hidden scroll bars. To refresh your

By using about: command in the "Open Location" dialog box
you can find out detailed information about your browser and
about Netscape. But be prepared for a long wait if you run
about:cache or about:global with large disk caches or global
about:cache returns information about your disk cache,
about:memory-cache delivers information about your memory
about:plugins lists your installed plug-ins,
about:image-cache lists your
Typing about: in the URL space tells you what version you
have, and if you click on the Netscape logo there you can see a
little boasting by the folks in Mountain View.
The about: command also supports HTML on the PC -- for
Bruce -- and does something silly on
the Mac if you type in an undefined command (try about:yomama).
A few about: commands worked in previous versions of
Netscape but seem to be phased out now. In particular,
about:authors and about:photo used to bring up some goodies,
but they're gone in 3.0.
Finally, for a historical reference type about:mozilla.
This is particularly impressive in the X version where you see
an animated Mozilla breathing fire in place of the regular
Netscape shooting star.
In addition to the about: feature, you may also type
"view-source:anyURL" in the location field to view the source
of any HTML document.
