In terms of Traffic we had just over 5000 hits to our blog with majority of the users coming in from Search engines. Without much ado here are some of the best posts this month.

Black Friday is over and many of you would have indulged in shopping a new computer. If you were lucky enough to bargain a great deal – Congrats! Check out the recommended reading I’ve mentioned below just for you.
We all love IMs despite all the distractions and troubles they can cause. If you are still using a separate Yahoo! Messenger/GTalk/Live Messenger; you desperately need a multi-network IM client that can handle all those networks from one window. Multi-network IM Clients save your computer’s memory big time by just launching one program for all the IM accounts you hold instead of a separate one for everything.

FeedDemon, an RSS Reader is the Download of the Week.
FeedDemon might be popular already but, I just started using it and fell in love with it at fist sight! For some reason, I’ve never been comfortable with Google Reader and thus I always kept up with blogs by visiting them. FeedDemon (though resembles Reader in many aspects) was inviting and I’ve been using it regularly ever since I installed it.

Opera’s latest BETA (version 11) brings in functionality to install extensions into the browser. I just had a look at the Opera Extensions gallery and found a small collection of extensions that are worth using. Since Extensions are pretty new for Opera, you should keep checking out their gallery in the forthcoming days for more stuff.

It is 2010 and I still notice a lot of people on Windows XP using Outlook Express to check their mail. No, This isn’t another post about moving on to a newer version of Windows. I am writing this to point out that Outlook Express is obsolete and should not be used under any circumstance.

Chrome got desktop notifications sometime in may and it was amazing. We were able to get alerts for email, etc. But I always missed notifications for Tweets on Google Chrome and this is one of the reasons why I started using TweetDeck instead. When I was randomly skimming through the Chrome Extensions gallery, I found the super-cool ‘Twitter Notifier’.

We all follow certain users on Twitter who irritate us by indulging in excessive self-advertising/Re-tweeting etcetera. Unfollowing them is an excellent solution while there is an excellent chance for the person on the other side to get offended. If you really care about this annoying Tweeter and don’t want to hurt him. Filtering their tweets is the only way to play safe.
