Thanks for your comments in the recent NNT survey. Complete results can be found at http://www.neatnettricks.com/2009Survey/2009NNTsurvey.htm . Your responses will help continue to improve Neat Net Tricks.

01. CC.BETTY organizes your email message and its contents - photos, addresses, documents, and links - and then creates a mailspace where everyone can track replies, view, and add content. All you do is add betty@xxxxxxxxxxx to your email CC address. More details are at http://www.ccbetty.com/ .

02. OPENITONLINE is an extension for Firefox and Internet Explorer that allows you to open and edit your documents from everywhere. No software installation is required and you'll find OpenItOnline at http://www.openitonline.com/ .

03. MARKKIT is a Web2.0 text highlighter at http://www.markkit.net/. Drag and drop the markkit yellow pen into your browser toolbar. Whenever you want to highlight text in a Web page, click on the markkit bookmarklet. Markkit works only with Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and Apple Safari.

04. GHOSTERY watches the Web sites that are watching you. Find out how Web sites are watching you across every page on the Web with Ghostery. Ghostery alerts you when you visit a Web site that has Web bugs on it. Web bugs are hidden scripts that track your behavior and are used by the sites you visit to understand their own audience. Download free at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9609 .
