I"m looking for a browser plugin that will perform certain mouseclicks and fill predefined data like a script.
I remember it being discussed in a thread like spg spin to win but I can't seem to find it. TIA

Got a new PC with Win7 today. I always start by bringing back quicklaunch, getting rid of the pinned garbage, and stop tiles from combining: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/888-quick-launch-enable-disable.html
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I like pinning for chrome, Thunderbird and Windows explorer. All else goes. Also like that the status bar? next to the clock should show all icons.

FWIW it's called the System Tray
And pinned tabs definitely get my vote. I like how they work in Firefox - they turn blue when something changes, so I know I got a new email / chat by glancing at my gmail tab.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

WinDirStat
http://sourceforge.net/projects/windirstat/

Great utility for visualizing what is taking up space on your hard drive. I freed up a LOT more space than I thought I would with it...

thanks. I like the split view wysiwyg editing. Kompozer used to be my go to when I was just doing html email templates. But now I'm editing simple pages and kompozer's live view isn't nearly as accurate as dreamweaver
