Has your Mac been good this year? Then reward it with some new software. I have collected a stockings-worth of handy freeware that should make your Internet time more effective.
There are good ideas, and then there are great ones. This little menu bar application lets you initiate searches to Google, Ebay, MacUpdate and more right from your menu. If you’re brave enough to dig into the code, you can add any site you like.
This frequently updated FTP client is still in early development. Its “iApp” style brushed metal interface is appealing, as are its options. Quite a handy FTP client, it gets the job done nicely. Best of all, itÃs free and Fetch isnÃt.
Ever received an email with a mysterious winmail.dat attachment? These encoded attachments are the product of Mac-loathing Outlook clients. TNEFÃs Enough is a small application that extracts anything meaningful from the winmail.dat file. Very useful if you receive frequent email from Win-Dosers. This one comes in Carbon, FAT and 68k flavors.
