with 5 comments

Jane Hart asked me at our Internet Time Community : “What are your top 10 tools?”. Here goes the list (in no particular order). You can see other’s top 10 here.
1. Firefox

Do we remember how was the life before FireFox? FF is not only the browser that simply works, the Plugins and Add-ons developed by the community help me to make it my own. Love it!
2. Google Family

It’s not a single tool, I use and love and can’t live without Gmail, GTalk, Google Reader, Google Docs and Spreadsheets, Google Calendar, Google Notebook..

3. WordPress

The sweetest :) blog engine, again Open Source and community development (plugin, theme) rules! All of my blogs are using Wordpress. [Thanks James for introducing me to WordPress, 3 years back]

4. Del.icio.us

Simple, easy to use, effective. Period!

5. Flickr

Most intuitive online album application till date.

6. Basecamp

The online project management application by 37 Signals. Without that me and my team will be forced to live a hellish chaotic life! It’s simple and provides a great user experience.

7. PB Wiki

We are running our intranet or ‘Knowledge Pod’ on this. Cool, flexible and easy too use. Even a drunken monkey can use it.

[Last 3 are Desktop Tools, unfortunately!]

8. Mindmanager Pro 7

Most feature rich, link-all-tools mind managing s/w, I use it as my dashboard.

9. PowerPoint 2007

Because still there is no viable alternatives.
10. Outlook 2007

I know it’s so uncool! I swear, I tried ThunderBird. But…
