since you might be digging the internet for a notepad replacement or an explorer extension that makes searching files easier..
i thought to save u some bandwidth .. and tell you about some tools i like
most of these are Free Software. برامج حرة
Exploring, Navigation and GUI
use Ctrl+Shift+V .. to paste stuff that you copied and overwritten .. like office Clipboard but cooler
if you like HackIt .. you will love PM, send any window to System Tray, makes it transparent or On Top
- Rocket Dock
Coolest app from the Mac World
Copy, Pause, Cancel and Resume in Windows Explorer and On Lan, hundreds of files.
adds a Toolbar in your Explorer, with some handy stuff (open ComandLine here, copy all pathes, copy names, rename all) .. extremely useful.
if you are a Linux fan .. then u know grep .. and u also know that windows search is useless .. grepWin Lets you search inside files with a RegEx or for normal Text
No matter what you do .. u can never rely on that.. so i will mention NONE
Network and Chat
u can see a cant be bias here
may be slower than LogMeIn.. lets you share the desktop with your friend.. very helpfull for remote assistance
aside the fact that current GTK+ release on windows is extremely buggy, Pidgin is All In One Chat Client, very light, very cool .. simply you can have 2 Gtalk accounts + 1 yahoo + 3 MSN in one window, one program
- FireFTP .. obvious
Drag and Drop any link in a new background tab .. instead of Ctrl+Click every time
- Shareaholic Found something awesome and cant wait to pass it on ? share over GReader, digg or anyother..
bookmarks in a smart way
- Sxipper Manages your passwords and fills-web forms .. extremely SMART
want to make your tabs at the bottom of the page , control ordering , force 1 instance of FF ?
- Zemanta a blogger ? .. u MUST try this
- Foxit Reader
compared to Adobe reader ? .. this one should be rated (999/5)
aka Churchill, a compact Dictionary, with shourtcut keys , just select, press ALT+T and u see the meaning. the last version is wierd, but its free any way
take alook for yourself, it can replace Notpad interly by the way
- Winamp ..
Tired of the “your evaluation Copy expired” every time you open a zip file in WinRAR ?, 7-zip is the OpenSource alternative
Now to the best part
gives you every detail about any process in your system
Source Control Management .. if you are still makeing copies of your code and sending them through mail in zip files to your friends .. then you should start using SVN
convert Makefiles into VS Solutions
i think that’s all.. you want to share a tool you like ? .. place it in the comments
