Mozilla Thunderbird, Integrated with Gmail

The latest version of Thunderbird, Mozilla's email client, lets you add a Gmail account without entering any other detail than your email address. The account wizard's poor wording might mislead people into thinking that Gmail is not a mail service, and it also forgets you to tell you how to enable POP3 in Gmail.
Among other new features, Thunderbird 2.0 adds message tagging, saved searches, more descriptive alerts that include email snippets. Even if you like Gmail's web interface, a mail client is still useful to backup your email and for reading your messages offline. If you use multiple email clients, your Gmail messages are available only to the first client that requests them. To change that, replace with in your client's settings.

Lifehacker posted the list of 10 most useful Greasemonkey scripts. For the uninitiated, Greasemonkey assigns user-created scripts to run on certain web pages automatically, scripts that enhance and customize the way those pages look or behave. Also, is a constantly-updating repository of great Greasemonkey scripts.

Lifehacker's list included a few goodies like : Profanity Filter, TextArea Resize, GMail Macros and ruined the fun with their own script : Nested Comments (Lifehacker/Consumerist).

BloggerWhale did not agree with them and listed some more scripts. Most of these are duds except for Blogger- Enlarge Template Editor.

Quickly embed an image without hotlinking

Lifehacker shows a wonderful way to embed an image to your site/blog without actually hotlinking. Web site ImgRed (Image Redirection) lets you quickly embed an image from another web site and embed it elsewhere without leeching bandwidth from the source. Just grab the URL of the image and append it to

(e.g., The site copies the image to their server the first time it's requested, then serves it up permanently.

Its a pain to save the image from a site locally, upload somewhere and then use that image. This alternative not only very smart but extremely time-saving. As we all know that its not a good idea to hotlink an image from someone's site and steal their bandwidth.

Yahoo Alpha is here

Yahoo!7 is about to release version 1.0 of Yahoo! Alpha beta - a new service that allows users to create personalized search engine homepage using an intuitive drag-n-drop interface.    

The thing I liked about this is a very clean interface and plenty of options to create customized search engine. This is still a beta and needs some refinements like RSS search feeds, etc. but seems quite promising.

Google wireless broadband announced - straight from your toilet.

Google announces TiSP. A new FREE in-home wireless broadband service on 1st of April. The press release says (this is hilarious) ...a free in-home wireless broadband service that delivers online connectivity via users' plumbing systems. The Toilet Internet Service Provider (TiSP) project is a self-installed, ad-supported online service that will be offered entirely free to any consumer with a WiFi-capable PC and a toilet connected to a local municipal sewage system.

"We've got that whole organizing-the-world's-information thing more or less under control," said Google Co-founder and President Larry Page, a longtime supporter of so-called "dark porcelain" research and development. "What's interesting, though, is how many different modalities there are for actually getting that information to you - not to mention from you....There's actually a thriving little underground community that's been studying this exact solution for a long time," says Page. "And today our Toilet ISP team is pleased to be leading the way through the sewers, up out of your toilet and - splat - right onto your PC...I couldn't be more excited about, and am only slightly grossed out by, this remarkable new product," said Marissa Mayer, Google's Vice President of Search Products and User Experience. "I firmly believe TiSP will be a breakthrough product, particularly for those users who, like Larry himself, do much of their best thinking in the bathroom....

Happy Fool's Day !
