Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

What does this tool do:  Allows quick access to bookmarks while hiding them from view…and much more.

Cost: Free

Looksee Page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/roomy-bookmarks-toolbar/?src=userprofile

Comments: This addon is much more valuable than may be obvious at first. It allows you to do many things you had never even considered before, but ends up saving you “real estate” and time in accessing your saved bookmarks. Among many options, you can hide (or not) multi-rows and names of bookmarks and save space by sizing and squeezing bookmark folders. Check this out.

pingdom: How Fast Can You Load, Buddy?

pingdom Review

What does this tool do: Checks the load speed of your web site and compares it to others.

Cost: Free

Looksee Page: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/

Comments: Yeah, pingdom has been around since 2009, and it also offers a web monitoring service that tells you when your website is offline. But you should always check the load time of your site because Google and visitors see this as important.

Pocket: And Save This

Pocket

Pocket Review

What does this tool do? Easily saves web pages for later review.

Cost: Free Firefox Add-on

Download Page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/read-it-later/

Comments: If you have never used this Add-on (when it was named “Read It Later”), you should try it now. When you are doing focused research, other great looking sites always seem to grab for your attention. Pocket offers you a fine opportunity to save and then return to a site later. It also will sync among all your computers (and mobile devices) and it offers a handy browser tool to make it very easy to access.

 

 

AdwCleaner: How Do You Pronounce It?

AdwCleaner

AdwCleaner Review

 What does this tool do?  Scrubs out your malicious adware, unwanted toolbar software, Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs), and prevents that unwanted change  from your primary browser.

Cost: Free

Download Page: http://general-changelog-team.fr/fr/downloads/finish/20-outils-de-xplode/2-adwcleaner

Comments: Fast. Easy. Impressive. Safe. On reboot I expected my computer to crash, but I only gained confidence that it did it’s job. Nevertheless, I would suggest you create a System Restore Point (Go to: Control Panel\Control Panel Items\System) before using it. This program allows you to make your own choices about what should be deleted, but for me, I deselected nothing. Voila!

TeamViEwer 9: Bye Bye LogMein

 TeamViewer 9 Review

 What does this tool do? Remote control of other computers

Cost: Free

Info Page: http://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/currentversion.aspx

Comments: This is a good free replacement for LogmeIn which recently and abruptly told it’s many user’s  it was discontinuing their free service. Judging by the angry response, this may be a lesson in poor customer marketing relations for Logmein. But try this alternative. It’s very good.

PicPick: My Pic, Your Pic, We All Pick Together

PicPick

PicPick Review 

What does this tool do:   Captures, annotates and edits websites, or your own saved photos or text.

Cost: Free

Info Page:  http://www.picpick.org/en/

Comments:  There are many downloads of free screen capture tools, but this is one of the better free ones. At first I did find that PicPick’s scrolling window capture did not work in my Firefox or Chrome browser, but it did fine when using Internet Explorer. You’ll find good tutorials for it as well.

He’s Baaaack!

THE BROWNIE CAMERA PAGE - All About Eastman Kodak Brownie Cameras 2014-01-04 12-59-03

Review 

What does this tool do:  Measures your raw ability.

Cost: Free

Who Needs It:  Well, possibly you.

Comments:  

More about Brownie Cameras in a minute. So anyway, I did indeed have a stroke, or hemorrhage to be more exact. It has taken about four years to return. My speech is still slightly affected along with my balance and right hand, but luckily my mind is still the same; I remain abnormal. Isn’t that wonderful. And although the world of blogging has become much easier to enter in the past several years, the basic elements remain very much the same. Even if you have all the tools, you will still need an underlying talent to get your message out. Good content is what is able to highlight good bloggers…just like a good photographer with a Brownie Camera. Same with blogging. You only need basic tools if you have the talent. And that’s what this web site offers. Tools.

This site is meant for my clients and any others who may back into it, yet my goal is not to be Number 1 on Google. So I will resume sometime in the fall. If you want to prepare a site and get noticed quickly, then take the time to bookmark the entries. All you need is right here. You will profit from it!

Comments:

This is the second time I have referred readers to Spy, the first being during the Mumbai massacre. Does it have anything to do with ranking your site? Not really. Does it have something to do with life on the “outside”?  Yes.  Use the pound sign to follow a specific subject and be continually updated. (#Iran).

Cost: Free

Who Needs It: Got a blog? You can use Wowzio.

Comments:

(The Wowzio site is no longer operational. But I left it here for you to investigate.)  If you look to the left sidebar in Webzoom.biz, you will find a useful and informative “widget” that was easy to insert and has been taking residence, on trial there, for several months.
