Neat things on the 'net

I don't geek out about web applications very often --- my geeking out is usually more Whedonesque or otherwise fangirl in nature --- but I am just! so! thrilled! with my latest finds:

1) meebo (as seen at e pur si muove)--- Finally, the IM equivalent of web-based email: an integrated IM system that doesn't require any software downloads. All you gotta do is punch in your existing logins and passwords for ICQ, MSN Messenger, Jabber/GoogleTalk, Yahoo! Messanger and/or AIM. You can sign in with one account first, then add more accounts on the same IM service once you're online. After that, it's just a matter of IMing to your heart's content. When I'm at work, my connection is more stable to this web-based application than to separate IM clients.

2) GIMPshop (as seen in Popagandhi's comments section) --- For those of us who can't afford Adobe Photoshop. All I had to do was download X11 and it was running like a char. Now I actually have learn how to 'shops images properly...

3) The latest discovery/acquisition: GmailThis! (courtesy of Cowboy Caleb's Almost Daily Linkorama Part 152): An indispensable web browser add-on for all Gmail users. Plus it's built for the Mac! (Although I think it works with Windows browsers as well.)

Knock yourselves out.

Thanks for telling people about GIMPShop. It's a great app, and I love to use it. I can't believe it's free!
