Get Your Daily Freeware Here

Well, maybe not daily. For some reason, there's no pdf browser plug-in included in Mac OS X. So for a year, or thereabouts, I've been laboriously downloading pdfs and opening them in Preview before trashing them. Of course, someone has stepped into the breach and provided a neat little plug-in. It's not as advanced for IE as for other browsers, but none of you are using IE for Mac any more, are you? (via Mac OS X Hints, which is essential reading in any case.)

Meanwhile, iChat's a bit of a stone soup program. It's not bad, but it could really do with a couple of carrots, in the form of iChat Enhancer, which allows you to increase the size of the text entry box so that you can see an entire sentence at once. Unless U R monosyllabic txtng teen. And it's even tastier with some tomatoes, such as iChatStatus, a program which changes the status in iChat to show what's currently playing in iTunes. Pointless but very cute.

What is the point? How am I going to get a reward for the work?
If a dentist filled teeth for free he would die of starvation, wouldn't he?
