Toolbar command-click trick Apps
In some Cocoa applications, if you command-click the toolbar button in the upper-right corner of the title bar, the toolbar will switch between Icon Only, Icon & Text, and Text Only modes.

I haven't had the chance to test this in many applications yet (primarily because there are still so few available), but it does seem to function in Mail, OmniWeb, Address Book, and Project Builder so far.

Unfortunately, it does not work in the Finder, where it would probably be the most useful.

The reason it wouldn't work in the Finder is that the Finder is not a Cocoa app as you might expect, but rather still a Carbon app.

Sad, because this means my mousewheel doesn't work in it - and *that* would be useful.

If you'll Shift-click that little widget in the upper right corner in the Finder, you'll get the Customization window so you can fix that Toolbar any way you want it. ;)
