Select two words in Camino via double-click Web Browsers
Just now observed in Camino: Double-clicking on the right part of the last letter of a word selects that word plus the following word. If there is any punctuation immediately after the word, then the punctuation is selected instead of the following word. If you double-click in the left half of the last letter, the usual behavior results (word selection, no punctuation).

Makes you wonder what that's useful for...

[robg adds: I tried this in a few other apps (Safari, Smultron, TextEdit), but had no luck; this trick seems to be limited to Camino, at least based on my limited testing.]

This also happens in Firefox on the windows machine I'm currently using. Maybe it's a Mozilla thing?

I'm sure this is just a buggy artifact of the Windows-style text-selection behaviors in Gecko--it's one of the things I'd like to see get rooted out in the future. (Similarly, double-clicking on a space character selects the space and both adjacent words, rather than just the words.)

In other words, it's not a hint, it's a bug ;-)

This happens when you doubleclick the SPACE between two words, not really by doubleclicking the "right half of the last letter". ;-)

this is not the sig you`re looking for.
