Copy Fixer for Firefox and Chrome lets you easily copy the URL and page title (Download Squad)

Nov 17th 2010 3:24AM That is really useful, I need this.

SugarSync for Android is just like Dropbox... but better (Download Squad)

Oct 1st 2010 11:50AM Since SugarSync and DropBox are the only two mentioned here, then let me throw in SpiderOak as well.

I use both DropBox and SpiderOak. I may very well end up using SugarSync one day too, but the particular needs I had was best covered by these to.

Windows Live Sync 2011 offers slick peer-to-peer sync and remote control (Download Squad)

Jun 17th 2010 5:38AM I just notice that the page I posted a link to is auto-generated and you can replace the error code with any number and it generates a page with the same content for that....so be aware, maybe downloading and running CCleaner with its registry error repair will be better....

Update puts the "hot" in Hotmail: attachments up to 50MB, better organization, and much more (Download Squad)

May 18th 2010 4:00PM Hotmail's spam filter is actually very good. I have used Hotmail for over 10 years for private e-mail messages (since before Microsoft bought it), and I receive typically between 50 to 250 messages per day --I can't remember the last time I saw more than one or two spam messages in my inbox, but mileage my vary depending on settings, etc.

On the other hand, I do plan to switch to Gmail (I have accounts there too, but not used actively) but not because of Hotmails spam filter....I recently saw a test showing that spam was worse on Gmail.
