Open-Source-of-the-day : HovText

Saturday, August 05, 2006
Here is the recipe for typing less and storing more in the clipboard:

Use Firefox + Autocopy + Copy URL+ + HovText

When you want to copy text, highlight it and Autocopy goes into action.

When you want to clip Title / Selection / URL, you right-click and use Copy URL+

When you want HTML free text ( and last 10 used texts) , use HovText.

The Hovgaard Klan .:: HovText
HovText is a small freeware and open source Windows application that removes any formatting from the clipboard and it also works as a simple clipboard manager. Any text in the clipboard will be pasted as raw text without any HTML code, font size, color or layout etc. HovText remembers also the last 10 copied texts (both formatted and unformatted) and you can filter out whatever text you need with regular expressions.

RealNetworks to distribute Google and Mozilla software

Wednesday, August 02, 2006
Don't use the annoying real player. Instead, use Real Alternative which plays all real media.

Macworld UK - RealNetworks to distribute Google and Mozilla software
Developers of three popular software applications - RealPlayer, Firefox, and Google's Toolbar - have reached a multi-year agreement to distribute certain applications to users.

When users download RealNetworks' RealPlayer media software, they will be given the option to also install Firefox and the Google Toolbar, the companies said today.

Working together will help the firms compete with Microsoft. The deal should also help expand their audience of users, because RealNetworks distributes more than 2 million pieces of software a day globally, according to the company.

Google's Toolbar and Mozilla's Firefox will soon be available for users of RealPlayer, Rhapsody music service and RealArcade games, the companies said.

Google and RealNetworks have distributed software for each other for the past two years, so the deal expands their work together, they said.
