Gtalk Extension for Chrome on Mac

I was looking at the Gtalk extension for Chrome on Mac OS X Lion (10.7) on Chrome Web Store. I liked that and installed it and now I notice that Gtalk now comes on my Mac’s menu bar as an icon.

This one is great as clicking on the icon opens up a new small Chrome window for Gtalk. So iChat beware…here comes Google without any native applications but using only Chrome browser.

How to disable inline image attachments in Mac OS X Mail.app

When you open or preview mails in Mail.app in Apple Mac OS X, the first thing you have problem with is big images are getting displayed within the message. Many times this makes you frustrating because you want to read the message and not want to keep on scrolling the window left and down. This is default behavior of Mail.app and does not show the images as attachments (even though sender had sent as attachment).

To overcome this behavior, you can disable the Inline Attachment Viewing flag for Mail.app. To do so, open up a terminal window from “Applications->Utilities” and type or paste below command:

defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool yes

At any point if you change your mind and come back to the default behavior use the below command:

defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool false

Restart the Mail.app and voila!

Also remember, this will disrupt any HTML mails coming which have images.
