Portable Gmail notifier for Windows 7

Gdow is a portable (no installation required), highly configurable Gmail notifier for Windows 7, Vista and XP. This nifty tool runs in the background and can be managed via a system tray icon.

It can notify new mails in different styles – as a classic message box, a popup balloon and as a transparent animated form. The transparent option is fully customizable. You can choose any color as background, font style and size, width and height of the message box and transparency.

As said above the program is fully customizable and portable. Just download, unzip in a folder and run the program. Give your Gmail address and password, choose an option for notifying new mail from ‘notify with’ option.

Choose an option from ‘Browse Inbox with’ for reading your message. Select ‘Default browser’ for opening your mail in browser, ‘Default mail client’ (for open in Outlook/ Outlook Express), or ‘Other’ for other mail client like Thunderbird.

Uninstall: open the settings panel and click on the "Clear Settings" button to remove settings from the registry and delete the Gdow's folder. Download Gdow from here.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
