These free tools have proven themselves for me and my clients. I hope you find them useful:


ActiveWords http://www.ActiveWords.com/ My favorite time saver - navigate, open, search using text vs mouse-miles traveled. I especially like the text substitution and integration with my Notes mail client. Check out this video on using activeWords to save time with Google/Gmail http://www.activewords.com/videos/AWforGoogle.html
