2 pieces of software that I’m sweating:
Firefox Deer Park alpha 2 - Amazingly, Deer Park feels faster than Firefox 1.0.x. I think the main reason is fastback and what appears to be smarter handling of when to render tabs. Still, it has a long way to go so at work I’ve been running two copies of Firefox (1.0.6 and Deer Park alpha 2) until a few more extensions get updated.
“Vipul’s Razor is a distributed, collaborative, spam detection and filtering network.” It’s been doing an amazingly good job of filtering email spam that normally gets past both bogofilter and spamassassin. It seems pretty unique in how it identifies spam.

Plus, have you seen the new page load error handling? No more annoying focus-grabbing popup… just a simple error page with a “Try Again” button. Beautifully simple, and much appreciated.
