Ever since I adopted Mozilla's tabbed browsing, I snarl in disgust every time a website's shoddy design twists my arm into using Internet Explorer (or as shas at one day called it, interNERD exploDER).
So, this leads me to ask, are there any browser plug-ins, stand-alone applications, or websites that you simply can't live without? What software tools improve your web experience or shave hours off the time it takes to do a repetitive task?
As soon as we get a new power supply for it, I'm hoping to get Jimmy's old computer (and trade out its video card for my much spiffier one, not that I play computer games that much anymore besides an occasional game of StarCraft and online Scrabble). In such an event, I will be wiping and reinstalling, which means that I'm rethinking the way I use my computer. I'm not thinking really hard about it, but a little.
So, what websites make your digital existence complete? What little helper programs either feed or break your habits? What apps make you need to change your shorts?
