Internet Startup is a utility for dial-up modem users; it loads all your Internet software (e.g. e-mail client, Web browser, chat clients) while dialling up your Internet connection. To make things quicker, pre-set groups of applications can be set up, which can be chosen with a single mouse click or set to be selected automatically when the program loads. In the illustration, the program has been configured with four Internet applications, and two groups have been set up: one of which will load iCab, Eudora and ShadowIRC. The program will automatically quit once the connection has been made.
The application is 68k-friendly; see the update resources page for more information about running the program under 68k and versions of Mac OS earlier than 8.1. And as of 2.3, the application is open source.
1 Applications that demand a connection on load will bring up the Remote Access connecting dialog regardless. However, it is possible to patch Remote Access so that the white dialog no longer holds up the machine.
