Ever wonder if you could have a Ninite-like program that you can use for Macs? Get Mac Apps fills in that void of multiple apps installation for OS X.
All you have to do is visit the site, select the apps you want to install, copy the generated command, paste it in Terminal, and press Return to start the installation.
They’ve got the basic apps we usually install on new systems – Chrome, Firefox, VLC, Caffeine, Handbrake, Audacity. They also have Gimp, Libre Office, Text Wrangler, and Sublime Text 2 & 3.
I’m just not sure if running the same command would update the installed apps. If you’ve tested it already, you may share the result by commenting.

When a streaming audio/video links to .asf or .asx files (Windows media), chances are you won’t be prompted to download the plugin if you’re a Firefox or Google Chrome user. To be able to play these streaming media files, you’ll either need to use Internet Explorer as your browser or install the Windows Media Player plugin for your browser.
You may download the plugin from the Interoperability Bridges and Labs Center website. Download and run the installer and start your browser. This plugin works on Firefox (even up to FF5 Beta) and Google Chrome.

WiseStamp is a browser extension that lets users customize their email signatures with their social profiles enabling them to add their latest tweets, blog posts, music, an eBay item or anything they want to advertise. I use it to promote my site, tweets, and my LinkedIn profile. Users may also add custom-made images to make their signatures attention-catching.
Before, it was just an extension (Firefox for me) that works on the browser-side. Now on GMail, including Google Apps domains, WiseStamp is integrated into the email interface. You’ll see a WiseStamp link near your username on the upper right hand side of your page. And when you click it, a window will pop-up to let you customize your WiseStamp signature.
WiseStamp Integrated in GMail
After customizing your signature, try composing an email message. You’ll see your new and shiny WiseStamp signature. If you see your old signature appended to it, configure your GMail settings by removing your old signature.

You may download WiseStamp extension from their site.
