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...

1Password brings secure password, notes, and credit card storage to Windows Phone 7

1Password -- the popular secure password, note, and wallet app for Mac, iOS, and Windows -- is now available for download from the Zune Marketplace. If you've got a Windows Phone 7 device and have been waiting for a way to tap into your Dropbox-synced 1Password data, now you can! Once you've signed in to your Dropbox account and entered your master password, you'll have access to all your...

Wifi Browser Login makes 'browser login' hotel wireless connections easier on Android

Getting hooked up to your hotel's 'browser login' wireless signal is easy enough if you're on a laptop, but connecting with a smartphone when you want to save mobile data dollars can be a bit trickier. For Android users, a free app called Wifi Browser Login (WBL) makes the process a little bit smoother. Once installed, just jump into the WBL settings and set your preferred options. To connect,...

Internet Explorer 9 features a better download manager

As it turns out, that earlier post from Fast Company broke Microsoft's embargo. Now, however, the ban has been lifted, and the images and reviews will be coming rapid-fire. We'll do our best to keep you up to speed until Sebastian is online in California. One incredibly nice new feature Ed Bott illustrates in his review is an improved download manager. If you follow Download Squad, you've no...

Comodo releases free Programs Manager utility

Comodo used to be a one-trick pony, but their firewall software was (and still is) an excellent piece of software. In the last couple of years, however, they've begun branching out -- releasing a handful of other applications like a Chromium-based Web browser, free antivirus, and several system utilities. Their most recent offering is Comodo Programs Manager -- a kind of kicked-up version of...

Sort, order, and switch tabs with the compact Tab Manager for Google Chrome

Looking for nice, minimal tab manager extension for Google Chrome? Have a look at -- what else -- Tab Manager. It's perfect for the number of tabs I usually have open (fifteen or less) but it may not be quite so well-suited to those of you who have dozens of tabs open simultaneously. Tab Manager only displays favicons and there are no tooltips to display a tab's title -- which make things a bit...

DownThemAll! 2.0 beta ready for testing

DownThemAll! is one of my must-have Firefox add-ons and it has been for ages. It's a fantastic upgrade to the built-in download manager, and it's about to get even better -- with the arrival of version 2.0! A beta version has been made available to the public and a wide range of new features have been added. DTA 2 supports global, per server, and per download speed limits. Audio and video...

Will Internet Explorer 9 finally get a download manager?

Just a couple days ago, Microsoft posted a new application on their download site. It's called Microsoft Download Manager, and it's pretty much you would expect from an app with that name. Its features are fairly basic compared to the download managers you're already familiar with like DownThemAll, LeechGet, Orbit, and Free Download Manager. Microsoft's app currently only handles HTTP...

Firefox gets a sexy new add-ons manager

Mozilla continues to plug away at Firefox.next, and one area they've been working at is the add-on system. Jetpack and Personas have already seen improvements, browser shutdown time has been reduced to almost nothing, and now there's been a major update to the Firefox Add-on Manager. No longer does the manager open in a tiny, new window of its own -- it now opens in a new tab, and you can also...

New tabbed bookmark manager lands in Google Chrome developer channel

Earlier this week, the Chromium browser's bookmark manager moved from a separate native app window to a new tab inside browser itself (a la Opera). The streamlined manager has quickly made its way to Chrome, landing today in the developer channel build. The bookmark manager in-a-tab feels is a much more logic implementation on tabbed browsers, and it's been a feature of Opera for quite some...

Better bookmark manager coming to Google Chrome - here's what it looks like (video)

Mac users of Google Chrome finally got a solid bookmark system in Google Chrome...but the dev team isn't stopping there, of course. In the last week or so, several updates have been made to the Chromium source code which will bring a better -- and more Chrome-y -- bookmark manager to the browser. The new 'tabbed bookmark manager' currently looks like what you see in the screenshot. Rather than...

For a limited time, download Easeus Partition Manager Pro for free!

I've written about Easeus Partition Manager before - it's one of my two favorite post-install tech tools. There's one downside to the free version, however: it doesn't support 64-bit operating systems. And that's kind of a bad thing. The majority of the customers I've seen purchase a new system in the last 6 months have wound up with either 64-bit Vista or Windows 7. On top of that, the free...

T3Desk is a slick, 3D window manager with Aero Peek support

I'm not sure I'd ever go for the kind of 3D desktop BumpTop implements, but I don't mind seeing a little imaginary depth rendered on my 2D Windows desktop. Enter T3Desk, a Window manager which does exactly that. It's a bit of an alt-tab replacement and reminiscent of the Window arranging wizardry provided by Compiz. One of my favorite features of T3Desk is that all applications you minimize...

Spacetornado Killer helps you end multiple processes with minimal fuss

Task Manager is an extremely handy tool, but it does lack a few features that would make it even more useful. Say, for example, the ability to control + click or shift + click to quickly select multiple processes you want to terminate. Like so many tiny omissions in Windows, there's a free utility which steps in nicely to add that missing functionality. Spacetornado Killer is a tiny (44KB)...

Off the Clock: djl is a must-have app for Linux gamers

Now that I've managed to pick up a spare laptop on the cheap, I finally have a dedicated Linux machine to experiment with. Priority number one since I'm Off the Clock for the weekend: get some games installed that are more fun than the ones Ubuntu ships (sorry Nibbles and Gnometris). Enter djl. Think of it as a kind of FOSS version of Steam. Except, of course, that all the games are totally...
