Best Free Outlook Express Backup

Introduction

Many email programs do not provide a practical way to back up messages, contacts and accounts. For example, Outlook Express (OE) uses an arcane data store that makes it difficult for ordinary mortals to back up, much less restore email messages. Backup programs offer a more straightforward way to back up messages, account settings and contact details (address book).

Best Free RSS Reader-Aggregator

Introduction

The "best" feed reader is largely a matter of individual preference. There are many good ones. Most of them, including the best, are free like browsers. The one that matches the way you want to work is best for you. :-)

No matter which reader you choose, it should give you some way to back up your feeds, preferably as an OPML file. You may also be able to use your OPML file to move to another reader, although the formats may not be compatible.

Best Free Internet Safety Check

Introduction

In the past, I've relied on parental filters and anti-virus software. Well, now I've been forced to use these safety checks since I've found them to be very useful. I sure like checking on a website before I risk browsing it. Even though it doesn't replace any of my existing security measures - except perhaps the parental filter - this additional layer of security is really useful.

Best Free Web Site Link Checker

Introduction

Virtually all websites have dead or broken links in the same way that all software has bugs. Mistakes happen, content changes, file names and locations change, and external links change. And until you've checked links for some period of time, and learned what breaks them, you're likely to repeat the classic mistakes on a regular basis. ;-)

Best Free Bookmark Synchronizer

Introduction

Most browsers have a built-in bookmark manager allowing users to bookmark a webpage location and organize bookmarks into folders so that they are easier to find. Usually they also allow users to export bookmarks to a html file so that it can be imported into another browser. These are the basic bookmark functions provided by the browsers, lacking the useful features of a bookmark synchronizer.

Best Free Browser Scrubber

Introduction

When you browse the web you accumulate a huge amount of stored data. The sheer quantity is surprising; often gigabytes.

Just what is and what isn't junk is a personal decision.

For example, I regard the information stored in my browser's history as a valuable resource, but I know that many see it as clutter. That's why the flexibility to choose exactly what you want to keep or delete is a key requirement.
