    Not too sure if this was in Tiger... pretty sure it wasn't...

    but when renaming a file with an extension, when you hit return or enter to rename it... only the file name is highlighted... not the extension - so you can rename it without having to select part of it yourself or use the arrow keys + shift to select it etc

    Thought this was pretty neat - makes sense

    Is it new? I've never noticed it in Tiger

    I'm quite certain that's new because I'm used to hitting enter and then pressing the left arrow three times then hitting Cmd+Shift+Left arrow.

    Yes, it's new. Also on the "new" front: You can now use your ordinary Internet connection when using a VPN. No more disconnecting from the VPN whenever you want to access websites!

    Tested in Tiger and it doesn't work that way. Good find!
