Two useful options tie the plug-ins behavior to iTunes, so that when you start and close the plug-in, iTunes will also open and shut down. The program is still in beta, but it’s compatible with versions of iTunes as old as 4. This is a pretty neat plug-in for those of you who find yourselves addicted to iTunes. Publisher’s Description From Carson Morrow: iTunesControl is a light-weight program designed to add useful features to iTunes. It adds customizable visual feedback, a sleep timer, and over 40 customizable global hot keys.
iTunesControl can show many different types of information about the current track, including album, artist, track name, track rating, and bit rate.
iTunesControl allows you to tag your music to easily create smart playlists of related music. A Song Search feature allows you to quickly find the music you want. What’s new in this version: Version 0. 60 has added option to mirror display on all monitors, only toggle “repeat one” with “Repeat Mode” hotkey, static album art, and fixed iTunes always gets WM_APPCOMMAND messages.
ThunderBrowse is a Mozilla Thunderbird plug-in that gives you a feature you didn’t know you were missing.
Once you get it, though, it’s all over–e-mailing without it is so much slower.
By integrating Web surfing directly into the e-mail client, ThunderBrowse cuts down on the time it takes to open a link from an e-mail in your Web browser.
The plug-in adds a simple URL bar to the e-mail preview pane, with Forward, Back, Refresh, and Go buttons.
Clicking on a link embedded in an e-mail now opens it up in the preview pane. Tabs are now supported, and ThunderBrowse can open a new window via a customizable hot key for speedy lightweight browsing on the fly. It’s got a reasonable number of customizable features, too. The option to open in your preferred browser is accessible either from the context menu or the middle mouse button.
It automatically detects whether your default is Firefox or Internet Explorer, and you can set it to ask before opening the browser.
You can also point it directly to an alternate browser, if you want, and a History-clearing button in the options menu.
ThunderBrowse is definitely for lightweight browsing.
What’s new in this version: Version 3. 81 adds compatibility with Postbox 3. 0, fixes context menu bugs, and improves View Source code.
For users accustomed to online wikis like the Web service Wikipedia, this freeware app is a great find.
Whether you’re into comparative literature or computer programming, you’re going to need to take and organize notes.
The big bonus with WikidPid is that, like Wikipedia, you can link notes from one to another in various paths, but like Notepad, everything is localized.
The layout will be familiar to users of Notepad and the more advanced Notepad analogues like NoteTab Light.
The left pane is a tree of nodes, while the main window displays the wiki page you’re currently viewing. The trick is getting familiar enough with the wiki format.
Once the user is comfortable with it, though, WikidPad helps you wikify any aspect of your work, or even your life.
The stand-alone, open-source app sports some useful features to help you along, including the absolutely essential on-the-fly linking. This occurs based on CamelCase and other criteria outlined in the included WikidPad documentation. Reading said documentation is equally essential before using the app, and the app could benefit from some clear and concise tutorials, or links to ones online.
