Foxit PDF Editor.

Always wanted a program to edit the .PDF files. Foxit PDF Editor is one of its type, there is no other tool available which can edit .PDF files like a normal editor. With Foxit PDF Editor, you can open a .PDF file, create a brand-new file, add or remove pages, change anything, and save. Like any real editor, Foxit PDF Editor supports features such as single or group selection, copy and paste, undo and redo, select, modify, delete, and insert text, images, or graphic objects, change font, font size, color and other text attributes for text objects.

The conventional Adobe Acrobat Reader has always been a pain, bulky in size (latest version 7.0.8 is about 17MB), takes like forever to open the .PDF files if you have more than 10 windows open at a time, most of all cannot edit the .PDF files in it. Foxit is considerably smaller in size just about 1.4 MB in size, opens .PDF files at a faster rate (about 20 times faster) and has features of a real editor.
Once I made the switch to FoxIt, I never looked back again.
Foxit is free to try, full version can be downloaded here
All the features can be used in the evaluation version just when a modified PDF document is saved, an evaluation mark will be put on every page you modify with Foxit PDF Editor. They also have Foxit Reader(just for reading .PDF files no editing can be done), free for non-comercial use.

Free POP3 access to Yahoo Mail !!

I found this fantastic application YPOPS! that provides free POP3 access to Yahoo Mail. Now you can download the yahoo mails directly into email clients of your choise like Outlook Express, Outlook 2000, Mozilla Thunderbird etc. YPOPS does not go against the licence agreements of Yahoo Mail, it is completely legal. Its a small programe just about 1.5 MB, does'nt eat up the processor or memory resources. Once you have configured it with the email client of choice and put in your Yahoo Mail account details, you wont'nt even feel its presence, it just sits in the system tray un-noticed! It can be configured according to ones needs like you can specify the folders from which you wish to download the mails, download only flagged or unread mails etc. All in all its a great application.
Download the latest version here.

Best Browser; Firefox!

I have been using firefox for 2 years now almost forgot internet explorer. Firefox is free, faster and safer, installation is small of just 4.9 MB.It has tabbed interface which allows to open many sites in the same window in different tabs, in-built pop-up blocker keeps those annoying ads aways, has integrated google search, large viewing area, sites load faster than on internet explorer. Can also install extensions as per the need, I have'nt used any extension though.

Latest version of Firefox can be downloaded here.
Get Firefox!

Internet Trouble.

Having too many net disconnections at home these days, Sify broadband sucks big time. The local cable operator knows nothing about the disconnections; faulty cables; too many connections on the same hub, and the dammn company asks to pay him Rs. 50-100 more for the maintainence. Anyways i have finally switched over to airtel 128kbps unlimited plan, Rs699 +12.5% tax, with a free phone line ;) also company says that speed doubles in the night thats 256kbps. Let's see if they are upto the mark!
