I admit it... I have a bunch of websites I visit whenever I'm bored and this is one of them. As you can tell, I'm frequently bored.

I use a browser called Netcaptor. Its claim to fame is that it lets you open multiple browser windows. But it also has a feature called CaptorGroups. You can open a CaptorGroup and your predefined browser windows open up. Nice. I have a CaptorGroup called Morning Report. This forum is one of those links. :)

Marktaw, I visited your site and found your link to Color Scheme. Very cool program. I need it. I've never seen it around before. It is very useful to me.

Yes, for some reason, CityDesk forum is a way of life. I don't know why.

I'm an opera convert lately.  version 7 is a very good program for developers to use.

Opera has something they called "saved sessions": http://www.opera.com/features/sessions/

Damnit, IE crashed before I got a chance to hit send.

This is a link to Color Schemer Online. I'm getting a DNS error for it right now though:

I started a thread about this in JOS almost exactly one year ago. I'm amazed that I found it again!

John Cesta: I installed NetCaptor after reading your tip. Its CaptorGroups feature is VERY nice, a real time saver when exploring a certain topic. I also like there's x tabs per open page WITHIN the application, as opposed to x instances of I.E. in the taskbar. I also like it uses IE: not really another browser, more an IE enhancing application.

Thanks very much for the tip!

>Thanks very much for the tip!

I have been using Netcaptor for a few years now. It's a good product no bugs. They are always sending out enhancements and small fixes (none that I ever experience).

Yea, I like the fact that it uses IE instead of trying to recreate the entire browser core and loading more bloatware on my computer.

I've recently "switched" to Mac OS X for my desktop at home (lured by UNIX on the desktop).

So I have the luxury of being able to use Apple's Safari (beta 2) browser. Safari has tabs and the ability to open a whole slew of bookmarked sites in seperate tabs with one click. Sounds a lot like the features of NetCaptor. Makes a huge difference to my daily catchup.

Still have to run a PC (all be it virtual) for my favourite CMS though ;-)

Check out Bulls Eye from intelliseek. I've got the pro version.

It checks your favorite websites every day (or week/month) and sends you just the new stuff by email.

There's a web-based free version at:
http://www.profusion.com

That's how I keep up on the CD new group.
