Web excursions brought to you by CleanMyMac 3, all the tools to speed up your Mac, in one app.

Brighten Your Day with Motion Controlled Cabinet Light
Every day I find things that make me wish I had time to actually dig into Arduino programming. Robotic feline enrichment toys would be my first project, of course, then lighting automation.
AnyBar and SuperDuper!
Great use of AnyBar from Dr. Drang.
Learn Git Branching
A very cool interactive tutorial on Git branching. Great stuff for anyone starting with Git, and even more for people at an intermediate (plus) level.
As far as command line directory navigation goes, this utility seems pretty awesome so far.
Yosemite: Enable dark mode with a keyboard shortcut
I don’t use Dark Mode in Yosemite, but I do need it when testing app UIs. I hadn’t paid attention to this option previously, but it’s handy for people who switch Dark Mode on and off frequently.
