Whenever you install a freeware or shareware always remember to use the 'custom install'. That way you can eliminate some extra toolbar or advertising bot from installing along with it.

f.lux
 
Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?
 
Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?
 
f.lux makes your computer screen look like the room you're in, all the time. When the sun sets, it makes your computer look like your indoor lights. In the morning, it makes things look like sunlight again.
 
Tell f.lux what kind of lighting you have, and where you live. Then forget about it. f.lux will do the rest, automatically.

Awesome thread!

 

:bumpsmall:

 

Got some FireFox Extensions to add:

Toolbar Buttons 1.1

Toolbar Buttons is the single biggest button pack for Firefox or Thunderbird there is. There are now nearly 150 Firefox and 100 for Thunderbird. You will find buttons that enable hidden functionality or is too many clicks away, but some of the best buttons are those unique to the extension. For example from some of out most popular buttons, there are menu items for, Options, Bookmark Manager, Bookmark Page, and Add-ons, but for Snap Back, Restart and about:config there is no existing user interface. There have been nearly 2 million downloads to date.

and a button maker, too:

Lots and lots of useful toolbar buttons.

 

:)

 

Here's some organizing software that comes in handy once it's set up....

 

Save Image in Folder

Right click an image and it makes a menu item which lets you paste the pic in a folder of your choice.

 

Automatic Save Folder

set up filters to paste different kinds of file downloads into specified folders (e.g.  PDFs go into Documents)

 

Screengrab

Sometimes its useful to take a screenshot of a webpage rather than saving the entire thing. Screen shoots the entire page or the selection.

Thank you for the pin!

Welcome!  In fact, looks like it might be good for a perma pin!

Those are always good. Little sites that offer simple links to stuff. This link is nice in looking for specific task minded software...
 
Windows Download Hubs
 
Download Hubs help you to easily and quickly find software that performs a specific task. But here's the twist: we won't just recommend the "best apps ever" and force you to take our word for it.
 
Instead, our editors create a list of hand picked software titles that can accomplish the task and you can make a choice based on your own criteria.
 

 

 

That one is really good! A task criteria driven search engine.  Nice!

IrfanView is a nifty little freeware graphics program. It's quick and doesn't fuck around when you have specific tasks in mind. Does everything you need to edit pics. It handles batch file support, optimizes, filters, etc.  Allows for plugin support, too. Better than ACDSee and it's small and fast.

It depends on what you need it to do. I like this one! No spyware. Easy intuitive interface. Some of the effects on it are good and there are a lot of them! Montages and slideshows are what I use it for!
