10+ Chrome extensions and Web apps for new users

It might only be a couple of years old and its extension interface might not be quite as powerful as Firefox's, but in terms of developers, big-name publishers, and sheer numbers, Chrome already has a very healthy ecosystem of add-ons. When you factor in Chrome's exclusive selection of Web apps, it's even possible to say that Chrome has a wider variety of extensions -- or at least until Mozilla...

Google releases list of 1,000 largest websites, lets advertisers target those sites

If you're an advertiser, you can now use Google's DoubleClick Ad Planner to exclusively target the 1,000 largest websites on the Internet. If you're a mere enthusiast -- or a nerd -- you can now feast your eyes upon an updated-monthly list of the largest domains on the Web. Unlike 'guesstimate' sites like Alexa, Google uses its sticky, all-encompassing web of data sources (Google Toolbar,...

5 desktop apps that'll make swift work of FaceVille -- er, Facebook!

I originally intended this to be a guide on Facebook gaming. Then I realized that if I inducted you all into the bottomless and eternal pit that is social and casual multiplayer online games, you'd never have time or the willpower to come back to Download Squad. So first I'm going to show you some neat desktop apps that might make your Facebook experience more streamlined, and certainly more...

Need an effective presentation? 6 PowerPoint tips

PowerPoint slideshows can be a good way to get ideas across -- when used correctly. Sometimes, they can be boring and confusing, even doing more harm than good. Here are a few tools and techniques you can use to create engaging and effective presentations. 1. Use the Lessig Method All too often, PowerPoint presentations become bogged down in graphs, long quotes and giant chunks of text. My...

Jay's 10 favorite free Mac apps of 2009

After Lee posted his excellent list of 10 favorite free Windows apps, I figured I'd jump in on the Mac side of things. 2009 has brought a lot of great new software to the Mac, especially with the introduction of OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. We've seen everything from hot new browsers to productivity apps to essential system utilities, and they're all well worth a download. Since Lee included some old...

To use the extensions you will need to install the Beta if you're under Windows, or the Developer build for Mac. Linux users will also need the Beta...

The Ultimate List of Google Wave Robots

This list has been a long time coming, and for that I apologise. But I think it will be worth the wait. In just the last month invites for Google Wave have opened right up with second and third generation testers getting invite codes of their own to distribute. Developers and users are now flooding into the new and exciting service. As a result, we're seeing rapid and extensive development of...

TASCK - Minimalistic online task management

TASCK is a bare-bones task list-manager web application. What TASCK lacks in features, it makes up for in minimalism. Literally, the only thing you can do on the site is add tasks by hovering over the plus symbol, and either check off or delete them as you complete them. It's unclear what the difference is between checking off a task and deleting it; in either case the list item simply disappears....

6 Microsoft freebies I actually love to use

No, Windows won't ever compete with Linux on price. However, even though Microsoft isn't giving away their RTM operating systems for free, they do offer a lot of great software and services at no charge. Here are my six favorites -- feel free to share yours with us in the comments! 1. Windows Live Writer - If you don't blog, Live Writer probably isn't that useful to you. If you do, though, it's...

Universal trip packing list generator

I hate packing for trips. I will put it off until the last possible moment, and even then some. Part of the reason I hate it is that I'm never quite sure exactly what I need to pack. If you're in the same boat, you might find the Universal Packing List site as interesting as I do. Basically, the site is a very compact user interface that asks you a set of questions about your upcoming trip,...

25 awesome Cross-platform games you can download for free

Regardless of what operating system you run on your computer, it doesn't have to be all work and no play. Heck, that could turn you into some kind of axe-wielding homicidal maniac bent on destroying your own family while watching over a remote resort hotel in the dead of winter. I'd certainly never want that to happen to any of our DownloadSquad readers, so here's a list of games that you can...

10 Facebook apps you might actually want to install

Facebook apps are pretty controversial, as far as developments in the world of social networking. When they first arrived on the scene, some people rejected them as ugly and useless, while others loaded their profiles with as many apps as they could find. I admit, I was in that first camp for quite a while. But, while I'm still disappointed with Facebook apps in general, I also have to admit...
