Acquire - Bookmarks App
This is the best 'Bookmark' utility I have yet found, bar none. Easy to use and it gives you complete control over your bookmarks. What I like most about 'Acquire' is the fact you can use it as a 'stand-alone' utility. You can print your bookmarks or actually create an HTML page of all your bookmarks! Has many more features. You can even e-mail bookmarks from within the program. Definitely worth a try. Check the details at the author's homepage.

Here's an application which should ease your Net surfing. At any time, you can enter an everyday word or phrase (like a company name, product/brand name, stock ticker, or your own defined nicknames and "one jump" directly to a site -- there's no need to check a search engine to see what the URL for a site is, because 1Jump does that job for you. What I like about 1Jump, beside the fact it is freeware, is that it comes will not add DLLs or other baggage files to your Windows/System directory and comes with an UnInstaller. The main file size is only 304Kb! If in a hurry, you can get it here

Once you have the plug-in installed, try this International Space Station animation for a start. It may take up to 5 minutes to load but is well worth the wait.

Visual Planets - Solar System
Visual Planets is a multimedia excursion around our Solar System. The program, already a classic, extends and deepens our acquaintance with the Sun and its nine Planets, using the power of hypertext to connect images to information about each body's moons, atmosphere, structure, rings, statistics, mythology, and the spacecraft that have done more than anything else to probe their secrets. Unfamiliar astronomical terms are equipped with yet further hyperlinks to more definitions. Underpinning Visual Planets are more than 100 direct links to some of the more unusual definitions taken from its companion reference work the New Windows Dictionary of Astronomy. A revolution in planetary science has been brought about by the use of interplanetary spacecraft. Visual Planets has been created in the light of new knowledge and contains over 150 of the best images from NASA's planetary exploration program.

This program scans your system looking for all references to DLL files in your Windows system directory. You can move .dll files that have no programs calling on them out of the system directory and delete them, saving disk space and improving system performance.
Find Dead Files
FDFiles uses the "last access date" date stamp available under Win95 and WinNT to help you "find dead files" on your system. Over time, unused files can accumulate from old applications you've upgraded or no longer use, or undeleted temporary files. FDFiles lets you find these files and remove them from your system.
