|Got some new free software stuff this week, thought I'd share the news.
1. Firefox Update became available and that got me thinking about getting some extensions. I got the weather service called ForecastFox, AdBlock, and Google Preview.
2. VideoLAN VLC, an excellent little media player for video. It runs a ton of uncommon formats, has a couple of nice skins, and with conveniently separable window blocks, I can play a fullscreen video on my second monitor (read: my tv) and keep the controls tab on my laptop. Mighty-nice.
3. Mess.be, a patch that modifies several features in MSN Messenger 7. Glad to get rid of the ads and such.
4. MozBackup, an awesome utility that backs up your Firefox profile so you can restore it in case of loss. I've lost my bookmarks before and replacing them was a pain.
