Computer Smarts - My Must Have Software
You may want to follow this for other peoples suggestions and updates I make!
Peek Through - Makes current application transparent using a hotkey.
4t Tray Minimiser - Pin application windows to be on top and roll up application.
WizMouse - Scroll the screen the mouse is over rather than the currently active screen.
PhraseExpress - I actually only use this for spelling auto correction, if there is a phrase that I reuse, I use ditto. Not a big fan of PhaseExpress, I think I'm missing something with it.
Ditto - Clipboard Manager. This is my number 1, I CAN NOT live without this...
CatchChar (trialling) - Inserts Special Characters LIKE GBP £!!! (That is not available on US keyboards)!
Must have Applications
Google Chrome - Primary Browser
Firefox - Secondary Browser
DropBox - Sync a folder with the Cloud.
InSync - Sync Folder with Google Apps/Docs.
Thunderbird - Use it to Sync with Gmail, effectively backing up all email.
Pixie - Colour Checker.
Paint.net - A decent and free paint package.
Beyond Compare - A well layed out Comparison Tool
Notepad++ - Better than NotePad.
Primo PDF - Print anything to a PDF file.
The Great Suspender - Removes open tabs from memory while keeping the tab open still.
Google Mail Checker - A count of all unread Gmail (nice if you get your Gmail tab to show unread priority emails only).
Rapportive - Information from various sources about your email participants.
I would like "Right Inbox for Gmail", but it stopped working and there were a lot of popup prompts to sign up to the paid version, so that's disabled.
