Updates Apple released yesterday
fixed a gripe some users (including myself) had
with the new URL scheme that iWeb employed. With its original release, an iWeb site's URL was
http://web.mac.com/username/iWeb/. Leaving that last /iWeb/ off the URL would result in a 404 error. While this isn't a
big deal to some, it's just one extra quirky name to add to a URL. To those unfamiliar with the internets
however, .Mac and iWeb could mess up, resulting in that exponentially increasing frustration that usually leads to
users simply giving up on the endeavor.
After installing the 1.0.1 update last night and making changes to some of my iWeb pages, I was pleased to see the URL in the "announce your site" confirmation window chopped down to simply http://web.mac.com/username. This not only makes the URL a little easier to remember and pass around, it also adds a bit more credibility to the URL, especially over the previous http://homepage.mac.com/username scheme.
