This week weÃll be looking at three apps that duplicate the function of other programs. While most of these will replace applications that are already free, you may find them valuable alternatives if the regulars fall short.
This plug-in for Mail allows you to access your Hotmail account from inside Mail, similar to the way Entourage does. This project is also open-source, and is frequently updated with new features and bug fixes.
This small app is a replacement for StuffIt Expander. While it performs the same basic archive extraction, it includes several extra features including displaying an archiveÃs contents and easy drag-and-drop expanding.
Here we have an app replacement for Preview. While feature-wise this application does not outperform Preview, it is useful for format verification and PDF troubleshooting. IT is also quite fast and has a small footprint.
I hope you find some of our designer impostors useful. As always, IÃm on the hunt for more great free software.
