RecycleBinEx is an awesome recycle bin app for your Windows 7 taskbar

I admit it -- I'm not much of a Recycle Bin user. Usually if I press the delete key on my Windows system I'm also holding down the shift key for instant vaporization. If, however, you enjoy the safety net that the Recycle Bin provides and you're using Windows 7, you really should check out RecycleBinEx. It's made by the same developers who created FCleaner -- a very capable CCleaner altern...

Trash Can extension adds better tab reopening to Google Chrome

Google Chrome is a great Web browser, but it's got a few shortcomings. Tops on my list are the bare bones download manager and its crappy tab reopening ability. No, I don't want to right-click and reopen five tabs just to get back to the one Web page that I want reopened. I want choice!

"Previous Version" file system support coming to Vista

Ars Technica is reporting that versioning support will be implemented in Vista at the file system level, allowing users who have System Protection (enabled by default) running to simply right-click a file to access a "Previous Versions" menu (now I know why Vista's hard drive requirements are so steep). Previous Versions will also monitor backups made of files with Vista-aware backup applications,...
