SITE LAUNCHER (www.donesmart.com/sitelauncher)

www.donesmart.com/sitelauncher

This tool links your most frequently visited web pages to a simple hotkey launcher in Firefox.

Once downloaded, you can access a dashboard with links from the top of your browser window.

The plugin comes with some commonly used sites already hotkeyed, but you are free to change these if you want.

43 THINGS (www.43things.com)

www.43things.com

This social networking site is a place for people to set themselves goals and keep a record of how they are doing.

Other members of the community can offer support and encouragement in the form of comments.

After registering, start adding your own goals and look around at what other people are doing.

Each goal you enter will tell you how many other people are doing it too.

HUBDUB (www.hubdub.com)

www.hubdub.com

Fancy having some fun betting on all sorts of news headlines?

After registering, you will receive 1000 hubdub dollars, which are actually worthless in the real world.

There is a social networking aspect so you are given the chance to import your contacts too.

When playing on the potential outcome of a news story, just choose the amount you would like to wager. This is a fun way to spice up your news intake.

GOOGLE ALERTS (www.google.com/alerts)

www.google.com/alerts

I have discovered this site from Google that helps put our minds at rest about personal information.

Google Alerts lets you input anything you want to know about if it appears on the web, including your own name, credit card number, bank details.

All you do is input the data you want to watch out for and confirm the alert e-mail when you receive it.

So every time Google's mammoth indexing system finds mention of it, an alert is sent to your e-mail inbox.
