Auto complete everywhere

Turns out there’s just tons of cool stuff lurking under the hood on Panther. This hint on Mac OS X Hints shows that option-escape or F5 will auto complete words pretty much anywhere you can input text. That’s just incredibly cool. Looks like it only works in Cocoa apps, but hey, still cool.

In the interest of complete disclosure, I don’t know if the capability was there in Jaguar as well. Nevertheless, a cool, cool touch. Suck on that, Longhorn!

UPDATE: A cursory check on a machine running Jaguar at the lab at school reveals that this is indeed New to Panther™.
