infoencrypt.com is a nice idea, anyway, because they are using http instead of https, data is being transfered as cleartext to their site. easy way to sniff the data by a man-in-the-middle, so it’s quite unusable this way.

Are they in any particular order? :-)

The encrypted message you can save or send to email. An email will be sent to the recipient with a link to decrypt and download the file. No one, not even their internal staff, will be able download the file unless they know the password. We don’t store original unencrypted files, passwords or sensitive information on our servers. The service is completely secured. http://crypo.com

Some of these are pretty dam cool, i like the encryption related links the most. The ms OneCare is kind of laughable though!

Free Surveys, MUCH better than PremierSurvey:
SurveyGizmo.com

There’s lots of alternatives for Hide My Ass btw :) I mean LOTS and LOTS.

Proxies are wild around, but i do admit that hidemyass looks the most professional of those i’ve seen around :)

Most of web proxies tho rely on the same codebase, there’s not much competition technically.

ConceptDraw is cool but i think its not totally free…they are offering a 30 day trial for this app

good article thank you

I love Google docs. It is good way to have docs anywhere on internet. But how safe is it? For example it would be very useful for me to save all those passwords I have (about 20 :-( ), but is it safe to save them on google docs?

Dear Optimizacija,
My advice is to keep your passwords on some paper (or on some pen drive), but don’t loose it. Google docs is maybe save, but what if somebody finds your gmail pass? With that he will get access to all your other things.. You can never be enough careful.

There’s quite a boom going on for online anonymity right now with Piratebay aswell starting to offer VPN connections :O

Good article thank you, Very good selection

Thanks for sharing list

I have been using Google Doc for sometime and they are a very good alternative to MS Office for sure.

I agree with you John, but it has much less possibilities. Maybe open office could be alternative to MS office. But of course, Google Docs has BIG advantage: that you need only internet, and you have your documents with you ;-)

Great compilation!!

Also consider zoomerang an excellent tool for creating polls and surveys. The real-time reporting and stats rock. Free. http://snurl.com/facebooksurveys

siroDDDD

Another one to look out for is a Project Management tool for freelancers – really easy to use and simple. http://www.projectbubble.com

Very useful blog. Menu for some things just helped.

You should add http://yourdough.com for managing your money

You can add many access names as you wish, up to 10 notes per access name and can be organized up to 3 groups. No personal information (name, email address, age …) required, just register any access name and password then you are ready to take notes.

Good blog, thanks to the nice tip, super …

Google Docs is my favourite. It is free, and I can use it from office or from home (same document). But my only question – is it safe?

Im usig it for a few years. Its very useful.

photo editor, free and easy:
http://pixlr.com/editor/

Great List of very useful Applications. Thank you

Thank you for your explanation. There really useful information.

Flash sites I personally do not like, but they are effective and are not good for optimization. I know how the images are not read as in the HTML sites.

Thanks, Just what I was looking for.

pixlr.com is a fantastic web-based photo editor. powerful advanced features, and very fast. best i’ve seen yet, and i’ve tried many.

they have a lightweight simple editor, and an feature-rich advanced editor, both free, not trial or demo.

Flash sites are very elegant and effective but that it would be well optimized site requires a really good programmer and master

Merci pour l’instruction. Je viens d’allumer internet et je tombe sur ton blog qui me fournit totalement sur le sujet de la mode que j’ai besoin. Continue comme ça, c’est un contentement de te lire. Au fait c’est toi qui a fait le look de ton blog ? Très élégant

I don’t know what to sead, but it is very nice…

Me too :)

How about Firebug, which allows you to inspect every element of your page in real time. You can make temporary alterations right there and then at the bottom of your page and see how it affects the look and feel of your website. Of course permanent alterations need to be made within the code editor but this is a great add-on available through your Firefox browser.
