!!Notes
*This software is in the alpha test stage. There is no warranty and no guarantee. I've been using it on my own computer for some time with no ill effects. Although I don't believe it will harm anyone's system, I certainly can't guarantee it. The user assumes all risks in using this software.


*I first came across shortcuts while looking at [OmniWeb|http://www.omnigroup.com/products/omniweb/] and decided that [Apple's Safari|http://www.apple.com/safari/] needed them, too.


*This is FreeWare. %%% It costs nothing. %%% Enjoy.
