Chrome Extension: Eye Dropper


Today’s link is actually to a Chrome Extension called Eye Dropper. What is it? It’s an extension for Google Chrome that allows a web designer to pick colors from web pages, etc. Well worth a look. I use it now. Very useful.

The Wilderness Downtown: A Google Chrome Masterpiece


Now this is something special from the Google team of developers. It is called ‘The Wilderness Downtown’ and is a collaboration between Chris Milk, Google and Arcade Fire (Band). It brings together a number of web technologies including HTML 5, Google Maps and Google Street View. It is something to experience and could well be a look to the future of the World Wide Web.

Adobe Buzzword


The era of installed software appears to be coming to an end, with online or web based applications becoming more the norm these days. I will find it hard to go past Microsoft Word and Office, however, online office-like applications are getting better and better.

Adobe Buzzword is an online word processor that is free to use. Not only can the application be used by an individual, but documents can also be accessed and worked on by others you choose to share it with as well. You can also access your document on any Internet connected computer.

While on the Adobe website, check out the other web applications available, including Presentations and Tables.

Great Free Web Host


For today’s ‘daily,’ I have a link to a great site that offers free web hosting with no advertising. It also gives you 5000MB of space and 50 000MB of free bandwidth a month. But it gets better still, as you can also have as many accounts as you like.

So if you have always wanted to have a go at building a web site, what a great opportunity to do so. If you want to have a look at a free site, I have set one up as a ‘portal’ for my online presence on the World Wide Web. View my site at:
