I love Foxmarks for synchronising my favorites between my two computers (wish it worked with Portable Firefox, though), and I'm wondering if there is a similar thing that would allow me to synchronise my extensions? 

*A few hours later: actually, I discovered I can get Foxmarks to work on Portable FF - woot!*

I thought I had learned of Foxmarks from this discussion, but see nobody else has mentioned it: a great extension for synchronising favorites across multiple machines - I now use it on two laptops and a usb drive, and it's great!

And also, I don't think anybody else has mentioned Sage...  This is an excellent RSS reader extension - a bit like Onfolio, especially when you use it alongside the excellent Scrapbook extension mentioned before.

After a month or so of using Look 'n' Stop, I highly recommend it - it's very light on resources (right now running at 5mb, often at 2mb or less), and extremely easy to set up and use.  In fact, since its pre-installed ruleset is pretty comprehensive, it's one of those install, run, and forget programs (once you've disabled the by-default-on-irritating-noise everytime it blocks an intrusion).

I have just posted this question over at the Davidco forums, but I'll ask here too: Does anyone know of any tips for using The Bat! for a GTD setup?

Reawakening a long-quiet thread:

After using TrayManager for several months, I have gone over to PS Tray Factory (, which I feel to be a far superior product.  I found TrayManager to be unreliable - icons I had hidden would pop back, or the whole thing would suddenly go belly-up for no clear reason.  It seems to be a bit rickety in its coding, and it just fell over far too often for me.

By contrast, PS Tray Factory is very solid - I haven't had a crash in about a month of using it - and it is very easy to configure.  See attached screenshots for example of it with my frequently-needed programs showing, and then with none showing at all except PS Tray itself (and you can also turn off that icon), and for an image of the configuration window.

In addition, it can minimize any program to the System Tray, and it works well with WindowBlinds (as you'll see from the screenshots).  Overall I think it's a winner: highly recommended for anybody who, like me, has too many programs running in their system tray!

re Gmail adverts, there are Greasemonkey scripts that very effectively clear away distractions from your inbox - I think the main one is the Google Butler, which not only cleans Gmail inboxes, but also any web searches.  It's a bit cheeky, because of course you're not playing your part of the deal, which is to bear with advertising - and after all, their part of the deal is very well delivered: an excellent email service.  Here's an excellent list of Greasemonkey scripts:
