Utilities and links

Suggested free utilities

Anansi is able to use WordWeb, an incredible great thesaurus/ dictionary.

Todd C. Wilson has an utility for making imagemaps called Map This! Unfortunately he doesn't seem to have his own homepage anymore, but there are various places on the internet where you can still download this great tool. Try here or here or otherwise do a search with your favorite search engine on MapThis (one word).

Jasper Metselaar offers an online utility for processing forms. I'm content with it: free formmailer. Highly recommended!

Did you know that you can fire up helpfiles from Anansi (Beta 3f and higher) just as easy as applications? The HTML 3.2 Reference is available as a Windows Helpfile. Mind you, HTML 4.0 is pretty useless in that it was released after the last major Netscape release.

It's got nothing to do with homepages, but everything with using multiple email-accounts. I've written Sneaker, a small utility that changes ini-settings. It does this not only for email programs but for any kind of program.

Browserola is a browser emulator to see how your homepage looks with different browsers even though you don't have them installed.
