Social Networking and Web Browsing
- Firefox: Mozilla’s open source project that took the world by storm in 2004, Firefox is still fast, powerful as ever, and customizable with useful add-ons.
- Flock: This “social web browser,” also powered by Mozilla and championed by a rabidly growing fanbase, streamlines and connects all of your separate social media accounts, including (but not limited to) Gmail, Twitter, WordPress, Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, and Digg.
- Tweetie for Mac: Twitter addicts come in different shapes & sizes and so do the Twitter desktop apps. There are several popular ones – TweetDeck, Seesmic Desktop and Echofon for Firefox to name a few. I have tried them all (with TweetDeck being the current favorite on Windows) but I am sold on Tweetie for Mac. There are two versions – free (ad supported) and the pro version at $19.95. You could mistake it for an Apple-developed product since it integrates so well with the Mac in terms of interface & ease of use.
