Software Roundup 1/31

Wow so far behind on installing software…

* Rich on how to fix search provider slamming in firefox
* Great article on spywareinfo on how to use the vmware browser appliance to have a completely secure browsing experience
* Another guide to must-have firefox extensions
* Rich on how to see what flipping codecs you have in the chain on your machine. I don’t understand why this is so hard on windows. Also some ogg/flac playback goodness from rich. oh and another tool from rich to debug the codec chain
* Installing frontrow on any mac
* Last.fm player — i’ve started playing with on my mac. pretty good experience so far.
* Google local mobile on the blackberry — cute toy but i never really find a reason to use it.
