Incredible cat photography

If you like kittens --and what's not to like?-- Kittens! is the place to go. Big eyes, button noses, tiny, pointy ears... and a temper. Unfortunately, there is no author to these pictures, so I can't praise her/him by name. (Here's an alternate URL, still with no author)

Another interesting tidbit about the page is that the artist advertises Firefox as an alternative browser for MSIE, which pleased me no end. Firefox is awesome, and much easier to use. It's also sturdier and has all the IE features plus dozens of themes and extensions that make the surfer's life easier. Firefox is Mozilla-based, the "fathers" of the browsers, onto which IE was (badly) copied.

Mozilla also has an incredible emailer called Thunderbird:

"Thunderbird makes emailing safer, faster, and easier than ever before with the industry's best implementations of features such as intelligent spam filters, built-in RSS reader, quick search, and much more."

I have never used Outlook. I've used Eudora, and Pegasus Mail; now I've graduated to Thunderbird and I'll never look back. Outlook is fragile, and easily punctured by viruses. Not so Thunderbird. And it's Junk Mail filter is one of the best on the market.

Best of all: both Firefox and Thunderbird are 100% free.
