Updates to KnowtheNetwork.com/tools

I’ve added some apps and firefox extensions to our tools page that I would like to bring to your attention. The apps are listed by category.

Wireless
inSSIDer – Free Wi-Fi network scanner compatible with XP & Vista
Vistumbler – Free, Open SourceWi-Fi network scanner compatible with Vista

Firefox Extensions
Compact Menu – replaces the standard menu bar (File, Edit, View etc…) with a single button. If you like a minimalist browser experience this is a great addon to give you more screen real estate.
Better Gmail – Collection of UI tweaks for Gmail
Better GCal – Collection of UI tweaks for Google Calendar
Better GReader – Collection of UI tweaks for Google Reader

Misc Apps
InfraRecorder – Free CD/DVD burning software with excellent audio/data/ISO features. There is an installer and a portable version available. I used to need Nero for ISO support until I found InfraRecorder. Must have.
FastStone Photo Resizer – Image converter/resizer that provides great batch functions. If you need to edit a group of pictures (batch editing) this is the one-stop-shop.
MagicISO – Virtual CD-ROM that allows you to mount/create/edit ISOs. How did I live before Magic ISO? In the past you had to burn the ISO to disc and then run the disc to access the software. Well those days are gone. Magic ISO will mount and ISO as a virtual CDROM and you are off to the races. You should add this app to your toolbox immediately.

What are your favorite apps? What is missing from my list?
