    Useful Software

    I'd thought that I would start a useful software thread.

    I'm loving more and more Firefox. (Can't stand IE or microsoft)

    - just type the first 2 letters of your URL and the most popular ones will appear. I type "a" to get my favorite * forum sites, or "m" for !!!

    *: Oooooops I mean "f" for ""

    - find text on page is much better
    - history search is better
    - bookmark search is better
    - cache viewer is much better


    And have the following great Firefox add-ons:

    Download Adblock Plus for Firefox. One of the most popular free ad blockers for Firefox. Block annoying ads on sites like Facebook, YouTube and all other websites. Adblock Plus blocks all annoying ads, and supports websites by not blocking unobtrusive ads by default (configurable).

    Ever been annoyed by all those ads and banners on the internet that often take longer to download than everything else on the page? Install Adblock Plus now and get rid of them.

    - no ads !!! and browser doesn't lock-up because of this.
    - also any ad area is removed so that more of the webpage fits onto the screen.


    For Youtube lovers; to save videos on HD permanently, now that you have to redownload videos every time. Other video sites also.

    Download Video DownloadHelper for Firefox. The easy way to download and convert Web videos from hundreds of YouTube-like sites.

    DownloadHelper is a tool for web content extraction. Its purpose is to capture video and image files from many sites...


    Firefox Add-ons: Dictionaries


    If you don't want ad webpages to spy on you.

    - Protect wanted cookies.
    - Automatically delete unwanted cookies.


    CookieCuller allows you to easily protect those cookies you want to keep and quickly delete those that you don't want.
    Gives you quick access to the CookieCuller dialog using a custom toolbar button.
    Optionally deletes unprotected cookies on browser startup.

    I'm partial to Safari. Though Firefox comes in a very close second for reasons mostly stated above.

              For the popular sites that I visit, I got them bookmarked and tagged with a letter on them.

              -Bookmark the page.
              Find the bookmarked site on your bookmarks
              Rightlclick on it, and scroll down to "Properties"
              And under "Keyword" put "j" for

              All you need to do afterwards is to type the single letter for the site.

              Very useful feature indeed.

                Thanks all for your contributions ! Could you please add a bit more of a description. E.g. a FLAC converter.... I've used one in the past but I forgot what it is and what I did with it

                I have a filming friend who obsessed about the date on videos.

                I found this nice add-on software to a video processing software and it removed most of the date all within a few hours.

                VirtualDub MSU Logo Remover MSU Graphics & Media Lab (Video Group)

                The filter is intended to remove logo from films.

                You can see the after and before of a 20 second example at:

                Auf YouTube findest du die angesagtesten Videos und Tracks. Außerdem kannst du eigene Inhalte hochladen und mit Freunden oder gleich der ganzen Welt teilen.

                  I'm more partial to the original Adblock, but both Adblock and Adblock Plus are cool:
