Useful freeware/websites
#1
This thread can be used to share and discuss useful freeware or opensource software and websites Big Grin

For instance: Firefox ~~ I trust most people use this already but what extensions are you using.

Today's find is: Wiredness http://www.wiredness.com/ - this is a web-based image editor, quite useful if you want to edit an image without having to fire up e.g. photoshop

What have you found recently that you like? Big Grin

I decided to make a list of all the sites found. Hopefully this will help in some way. =]

http://www.wiredness.com/ - this is a web-based image editor, quite useful if you want to edit an image without having to fire up e.g. photoshop

http://www.vixy.net - Converts youtube stuff to music or video files =D

http://www.keepvid.com - Does same as Vixy.net

http://www.launchy.net - Instead of having to go through the Start Menu and Program Files (and wait for the list to load if you have loads like me) or cover your desktop with icons, simply tap 'Alt-Space' on your keyboard, and start typing in the name of the application into the Launchy Box.

http://www.stardock.com/products/objectdock/  - ObjectDock enables users to have more control over how they organize their desktop. Rather than have a bunch of icons on the desktop, these icons can be put into docks.

http://www.punksoftware.com/rocketdock - an alternative to Objectdock

http://free.grisoft.com/doc/ - Free Antivirus, It works in the background and scans emails/attachments like other standard antivirus software.

http://www.bleachexile.com - Bleach Direct Downloads. Free. Though you do have to register for an account.

http://www.mangatraders.com - You can find quite a good selection of manga here

http://deathfan.com/ - Free Direct downloads for Death Note... Similar to Bleachexile. You need to register.

http://www.zolved.com/synapse/view_conte...on_Firefox - For those who use Firefox... how to reduce memory usage.

http://www.chacha.com/ - people powered search engine.

http://www.cccp-project.net/ - recommended by Yakhobian (if you've read the news) - great for playing videos esp. anime subs and such. Very easy to install! I didn't installed the bundled players (Zoom and Media Player Classic) as I already have the latter and don't particularly fancy having the first.

http://handbrake.m0k.org/ - Apparently this is a good application for converting DVD formats to those playable on the ipod.

http://www.giveawayoftheday.com - The concept behind this site is to give out what is usually shareware (the ones with trial periods) free - different ones every day. They generally pick some ok ones but others should be avoided. It is worth reading the reviews and %thumbsup and down.

Thanks for the links to Vixy and Keepvid Smile

http://www.launchy.net

If you don't already have it, do get it - you'll love it. Instead of having to go through the Start Menu and Program Files (and wait for the list to load if you have loads like me) or cover your desktop with icons, simply tap 'Alt-Space' on your keyboard, and start typing in the name of the application into the Launchy Box. It will select the closest matches to your input and you can just tap 'enter' to load the program.

The newest version even allows you to do simple arithmetic sums including + - / * etc. It also helps you search up google as well Big Grin Take alook!

Object dock is cool =D

"ObjectDock is a program that enables users to organize their programs and running tasks into a dock. ObjectDock enables users to have more control over how they organize their desktop. Rather than have a bunch of icons on the desktop, these icons can be put into docks. ObjectDock can also be used to replace the Start bar entirely freeing up valuable screen real-estate."

I haven't tried Objectdock myself, but I have tried Rocketdock
http://www.punksoftware.com/rocketdock

I understand its meant to be an alternative to Objectdock - the only reason why I haven't used it is because I like Launchy too much :p

AVG: Free Antivirus
http://free.grisoft.com/doc/
It works in the background and scans emails/attachments like other standard antivirus software. It doesn't take up much memory though which is great for laptop users or those with older computers.
