Wiki fans can get faster access to Wikipedia articles.

WikiReader is a simple program that lets users view Wikipedia articles without opening the Wikipedia site. Loading an article is as easy as highlighting a word in any Windows application and pressing a user-assigned hotkey combination. A corresponding Wiki article immediately opens in a compact window.

Create a more ergonomic workspace with a virtual desktop manager.

Having to run dozens of applications simultaneously on your PC may be very confusing. If this is your case, Active Virtual Desktop is what the doctor ordered. The software lets you expand your workspace by creating as many desktops as you may need. When you have an opportunity to map applications you work with to different desktops (e.g. Web, Projects, Games), keeping things in order seems much easier. You can easily jump between desktops using user-assigned hot keys, as well as move applications from one desktop to another. Some users may also find it attractive that each virtual desktop can use its own resolution and wallpaper.
