Firefox Overtakes IE in Europe
According to a recent study the Firefox 3 market share in Europe has reached a high of 35.05%, while IE7 sits with 34.54%. Of course this doesn’t take into account combined market share of the different versions of each browser, which I’d guess IE is still taking the lead on.
Gmail Themes for Google Apps Users
Last week Google finally decided to let Apps users get in on some of the Gmail theme goodness. I’m not sure why it took so long to get the themes ported over for Apps users, but it’s nice they got around to it.

–Tips, Tutorials, and Reviews–
Post to Twitter from Gmail
Thanks to the Gmail Labs feature that lets users embed Google Gadgets in the sidebar you can now have a great Twitter client at your fingertips. To make things even better the gadget will let you expand the Twitter view to use the space where your Inbox is normally shown. That way you’re not confined to the width of the sidebar.
Gminder Puts Google Calendar in the System Tray
Google has a notifier application that supports their Calendar service, but it’s only for Mac users. This nice little app for Windows users will also let you receive notifications for upcoming events so that you don’t always have to keep your browser open.
Bypass Download Timers in Firefox
The SkipScreen Firefox extension can be used to bypass those pesky download timers that show up on sites like Rapidshare and Megaupload (to name a few).
Conficker Eye Chart
Even though the Conficker work hasn’t actually done anything yet, it probably wouldn’t hurt to see if you’ve been infected. An easy way to do that is to use this “eye chart” that will load images from several different security websites that the worm is supposed to block. This also helps determine what variant of the worm you have based upon what images actually load.

Looking for a cheap way to get some business cards? If you own Office 2007 Microsoft has several different templates that you can choose from, and you can have your business cards ready in no time at all.
Online Weather Alarm Clock
If you’ve been looking for a good online alarm clock I’d have to say that Sleep.FM is probably one of the best. You can have multiple alarms, choose between a male or female voice, and have the alarm read out the current weather conditions to you.
