Smarter Wikipedia adds a "Related Articles" box to the mass-edited encyclopedia's left-hand menu, helping you quickly dig into and around a topic—or easily start a long spiral of Wiki-traveling.

Assuming you can responsibly break away from the big gray information machine, Smarter Wikipedia is a helpful navigational tool. Beyond the "Related Articles" box, the add-on can search Wikipedia (or Wikipedia's pages via customized Google query) for any term you highlight and right-click on. The add-on is built small and light, too, as its author points out, aiming to put little drag on your open-source browser.

Smarter Wikipedia is a free add-on, works wherever Firefox does

Puppy Linux- as cute and small as a puppy


This is pretty awsome according to me:-). Have you ever thought of an Operating system which is hardly 85 to 100 MB. Yes it true and it does exist. Its called the puppy Linux. What are it's goals:

  • Easily install to USB, Zip or hard drive media.
  • Booting from CD (or DVD), the CD drive is then free for other purposes.
  • Booting from CD (or DVD), save everything back to the CD.
  • Booting from USB Flash drive, minimise writes to extend life indefinitely.
  • Extremely friendly for Linux newbies.
  • Boot up and run extraordinarily fast.
  • Have all the applications needed for daily use.
  • Will just work, no hassles.
  • Will breathe new life into old PCs
  • Load and run totally in RAM for diskless thin stations.
Here's a You tube video of the same. Just see the video for the features:

Mojave Experiment


This is yet another fascinating site which i discovered as i was browsing.. Wats so fascinating about it is the 3 D video cloud. Wondering wat it is??? Its nothing but a cluster of video in a 3 dimensional view. Well wat are the requirments your browser should have to view the site? Yes since its "Microsoft" you need a silverlight plugin installed in ur browser. Although the the same thing can be achieved in Flash:-).. Don worry just go to the site, if you don have silverlight plugin installed it will guide you to install.

The Mojave Experiment is an advertising campaign by Microsoft for the Windows Vista Operating System. The participants in the experiment were asked about their perceptions of Windows Vista (having never used it) and then were shown a ten minute demo of Microsoft's "next OS", codenamed "Mojave". After the experiment was over, it was revealed that "Mojave" was actually Windows Vista. Before the session, the average rating of Vista was 4.4 out of 10; after the session the average rating for the "Mojave" OS was 8.5 out of 10. The official goal of the Mojave Experiment is to get consumers to "decide for themselves" rather than accept the commonly held negative perceptions of Windows Vista, providing links to product demo videos and other product advertising. Microsoft says that it is slowly adding more video content to the Mojave Experiment website.

Google labs feature u must enable in gmail


Recently i was just going through the lab features for gmail. I have had a few lab features before. But I feel these two lab features is must enable if you have gmail account.  

Offline Gmail:
So even if you're offline, you can open your web browser, go to, and get to your mail just like you're used to.

Once you turn on this feature, Gmail uses
Gears to download a local cache of your mail. As long as you're connected to the network, that cache is synchronized with Gmail's servers. When you lose your connection, Gmail automatically switches to offline mode, and uses the data stored on your computer's hard drive instead of the information sent across the network. You can read messages, star and label them, and do all of the things you're used to doing while reading your webmail online. Any messages you send while offline will be placed in your outbox and automatically sent the next time Gmail detects a connection. And if you're on an unreliable or slow connection (like when you're "borrowing" your neighbor's wireless), you can choose to use "flaky connection mode," which is somewhere in between: it uses the local cache as if you were disconnected, but still synchronizes your mail with the server in the background. 
Isn't this really great.It is according to me..
So how to enable:
1.Click settings,then select the labs tab.
2.Then enable the offline gmail feature and save the settings.
3.Now you will find a link on top right side of the gmail window named offline gmail.
4. Click the link and follow the instructions.
