Npacked software install manager is like Synaptic for Windows

One thing I've always preferred about Linux over Windows is the fact that just about every big-name distro includes a slick, easy-to-use package manager that makes installing and updating software a simple procedure. If you're using Windows, you need to know where to go to download apps -- in Linux, you just need to fire up your package manager and browse or search. We've looked at a few...

Blank Canvas lets you manage, edit Greasemonkey userscripts in Google Chrome

While Google Chrome knows what they are and installs Greasemonkey userscripts the same way it does Chrome extensions, there's not a very good way to manage your scripts once they're installed. As is the case with so many other software annoyances and shortcomings, an enterprising developer has built an add-on that spiffs things up. Blank Canvas Script Handler is an excellent extension to...

Free tool makes managing your Windows 7 library settings easier

Windows 7's built-in libraries are a great way to organize information on your system. Windows 7's libraries provide a powerful addition to Explorer. They simplify file sharing, speed browsing and searching, and improve organization.

Walkthrough: BitRocket - a killer new Mac OS X BitTorrent client

Dan Lurie over at TUAW found a review of BitTorrent clients for Mac OS X a few days ago. Apparently, this inspired Clone Software, Ltd. to stop guarding their secret and release BitRocket (which TUAW promptly found) - an OSS torrent client (in beta) for the Mac that indeed rockets past the competition (zing!). BitRocket excels because it is refreshingly Mac OS X friendly, right down to the UI...

Google announces Webmaster Central

Anyone eager to climb Google's pagerankings - listen up, as Google has just introduced a slew of tools specifically designed to allow webmasters to learn more about and interact with Google's crawling and indexing systems. Complete with a topic-specific blog, this new Webmaster Central service offers tools like a site status wizard (I thought we were getting away from 'wizards' in the industry),...

activeCollab - web-based, open source collaboration and project management

Web-based project management seems to be all the rage lately, and activeCollab is a great example. A 100% free and open source project that is under 'heavy development', activeCollab 0.6 offers what seems to be the now-standard array of messages, tasks, projects, milestones and documents, along with a tagging system and per-user project permissions. activeCollab's site even includes a list of...

Tablet PC + Basecamp = Scout

37Signals' Basecamp is pretty slick, wouldn't you agree? Tablet PCs, in their own right, have quite the slick factor as well. Wouldn't it be cool if someone, say a small software company called Luckymonk, came up with the idea of combining the two, say with a product called Scout? It sure would! While Scout isn't quite ready yet, Luckymonk offers a preview screencast of everything that will be...
