How To Login, Access, And Manage Multiple Gmail User Accounts With A Firefox Addon

Do you have more than one Gmail account and would like to manage them in a same place. Logging in to different Gmail accounts over and over again just won’t work since it consumes too much of time. If you are using two different browsers such as IE and Firefox then you can open two separate Gmail accounts respectively, but this doesn’t make any sense. If you are using Firefox, then there is an add-on called Gmail Manager that lets you manage more than one Gmail account easily.

Apart from it’s default multiple Gmail account management, it also shows notifications in case you receive an email in any of your account. Once you have installed the add-on, you won’t find much change in your browser except that you will find a little grayed out Gmail icon on the right side of your status bar.

Click this icon to begin adding a Gmail account, once you click this icon, a Gmail Manager Preferences screen will pop-up as shown in the screenshot below.

Gmail Manager Preferences

If you don’t want it to remember your Gmail password, you can check the Never Save Passwords For Mail Accounts checkbox under Security. Click the Add button, enter your Gmail account details and click OK.

Once you have added an account, you can add more accounts that you would like to manage. You can then select various options by going to Toolbar and Notification  tabs, once done, click OK.

Access Google Talk From Your Chrome Browser With Gtalk [Extension]

Gtalk is a Chrome extension that provides complete Google Talk functionality within a pop-up window of the Chrome browser. With Gtalk extension, you can perform all Google Talk tasks such as chatting with friends, adding contacts, managing Google Talk settings, etc without the need of opening the desktop messenger. This way you can talk to your Google Talk contacts while browsing the web via Chrome. It can also provide management of two separate Google talk accounts conveniently. As during testing we opened this extension from a specific Google account and accessed the Google Talk messenger simultaneously with a separate Google I.D. The result was such that we found no conflict and were able to open both accounts at the same time (via Gtalk messenger and extension).

It can also be quite helpful if for some reason you do not have Google Talk installed on your computer or if you do not wish to install an extra application i.e. the Gtalk messenger. Having less applications on your system obviously reduces the load on it and using such extensions can significantly reduce the amount of pressure on a system that may have low system specs (e.g. a single core PC). It is however, worth mentioning here that this extension is in its Beta stage and therefore, might have some functionality issues. It is under heavy development and the developer has assured to make it more dynamic in the coming days.

ManyCam Is Free Alternative To Cyberlink YouCam

ManyCam is an application for taking pictures and recording videos from Webcam, as well as editing and adding effects to them. It is quite similar to the paid software Cyberlink YouCam which costs about $45. However, despite having more dynamic options than the latter, ManyCam is a free software. It works on Windows and a version for Mac has also been introduced.

After taking a picture you can manage its saturation, color balance, brightness, etc. Moreover, you can also add animations, text and dynamic effects to them. The same options are also available to clear the imagery of the recorded videos.
ManyCam Options

ManyCam has built in CGI graphic (such as fire and water effects) that can be added to enhance the look of your images. The images can be saved (with or without the effects) in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format. You can also create your custom effects via the Add New Effect option at the bottom of the main interface. There are several built-in options to customize the look of your images and videos ranging from flags, funny images, dynamic backgrounds to 3D masks.
It works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OSX 10.5 or greater.

Send Heavy Files To Your Twitter Friends With FileTweet

Many a times people do not know the email addresses of all of their Twitter followers. This makes it difficult to interact with them on a more personal level. For example, some Twitter followers may simply  be interested in the content that is tweeted by an individual, instead of having any personal relationship or acquaintance with him/her. Twitter itself does not provide a default option to send files via Twitter. FileTweet is an Adobe Air based desktop application that allows users to send files (up to 2 GB) by entering a Twitter username or email address. It is much like SendGenie which we reviewed earlier. However, unlike SendGenie, it is a cross platform application and works with Windows, Mac and Linux based operating systems. All files are saved to the FileTweet server and are accessible via a given URL, which is emailed to the specified email address or to the registered email address of the Twitter user (if the mail is sent by entering the Twitter username).

To get started, click Sign in with Twitter. This will open a webpage in your default browser, from where you will have to sign in and grant authorization to the Filetweet application to your Twitter account.
Sign in
After logging in simply enter a Twitter username or an email address, drag and drop the file(s) to the Filetweet interface, type a message (optional) and click Send My File. Users can send file as heavy as 2GB in a single instance.
Drag file
The recipient will receive an email with a URL, from where the file can be downloaded. If a file is sent via a Twitter username, the email is sent to the default email address that the user registered for his/her Twitter account. This make it possible to send files to Twitter followers, without the need of knowing their email address. For example, many people follow Addictive Tips authors on their Twitter accounts as we regularly tweet our articles, however, we do not know the email addresses of all our followers. Using services like FileTweet makes it possible to send information in such scenarios to Twitter acquaintances without having to ask each individual for their personal email address.

File Received
The recipients of the file do not require authorizing Filetweet to their Twitter accounts and can easily download the file(s) from the URL. It is worth mentioning here that since all files can be downloaded by anyone with access to the URL, so make sure that the URL is only sent to relevant people and in case the files contain confidential data, ask the recipient to avoid sharing the link.
Download file
Being a cross platform desktop application, it works with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac and Linux based operating systems.

Folder Is Empty? Remove Empty Directories And Trash Files With RED

If you haven’t remove junk off your PC lately, a quick glance into Program Files will reveal a plethora of folders of many uninstalled applications, which contain nothing or just have desktop.ini / thumbs.db files. Even uninstalling applications properly seems helpless in removing such empty folders that are present in various locations, such as, Program files, My Documents, and Windows folder. If you’re planning to remove all the empty folders, try out RED (Remove Empty Directories). Unlike other empty directory removal utilities, it shows a complete hierarchy of root folder with red marked folders indicating either an empty folder or a folder that contains empty sub-folder(s). This will help you in knowing the location where empty folders are residing and where uninstalled applications leave their traces.

To begin scanning your system for empty folders, launch the app, choose the location to search and click Scan folder to view the hierarchy of folders present in defined location. At the right side, you can check the icon description to know the which folders are hidden, protected, locked, or contains trash.
Remove Empty Directories (Admin mode)
Once scanning process is completed, just click Delete folder to remove all the empty folders along with folder containing trash files in one go.
RED is highly configurable. While providing efficient mechanism to find out empty folders, it also lets you change the criteria. For instance, it considers folders having thumb.db, desktop.ini files as empty, if you need to change the list, head over to Settings and specify file types which you want to remove.
Remove Empty Directories settings
By default, it moves all the empty folders to Recycle bin to ensure safe removal, however, you can pick out old RED delete mode to permanently remove the folders and junk files. It works on Windows XP. Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

AllMyApps Is Feature Rich App Store For Windows

A while back, we talked about Windows OS being devoid of an App Store and advocated Npackd as one good choice for installing and managing Windows applications. Going over Npackd features, we couldn’t help but say that it lacks a lot of features in terms of organizing and searching applications by different categories, such as, Internet, Security, Video, Converter and so on. AllMyApps is a freshly baked utility which is, however, in beta phase yet seems promising in addressing the user needs when it comes to choosing a feature-rich App Store for Windows. Fortunately, it covers almost all the essential options which you might look for in an App Store. Be it application types, categories, runtime environments, download manager, or complete product description with ratings that you want to check before downloading, it brings all these necessary features of an OS App Store in a drop-dead UI.
Since it’s going through testing phase, you might not be able to find plentiful of application software, desktop utilities but most celebrated applications, add-ons, browsers, IDEs, etc., are provided in respective categories, such as, Adobe Flash, Firefox, Google Chrome, VLC,  Notepad++, Skype, Live Messenger, Spybot, Paint.NET, and many more.

The very first step is to register an account with AllMyApps, so you can manage your applications from multiple systems. Once registered, download the desktop utility and sign-in with your account.
After the connection is established, it will start populating applications into multiple categories. You can navigate through categories, add, and manage chosen apps in My List from left sidebar. A search bar at the top will help filtering out applications by supplied keywords in realtime.

Allmyapps 2
After you’ve selected an application, it will show you EULA and other details with an option to install the application.

Just click Install to start downloading the application. After the application is downloaded, it will start installing the application in silent mode.

3 Ways To Use Facebook Chat On Your Desktop

Facebook’s build-in chat feature is useful, but it lacks a desktop IM. Who will open facebook window for hours just for chatting? Browsers can crash or get accidently closed, therefore putting an end to the conversation. I am never comfortable with messengers build inside a website and prefer using a desktop IM. Lets look at 3 different ways in which you can use Facebook Chat on your Desktop Messenger.
Note: When you use facebook chat from desktop IMs, you will be able to use all feature that are present in facebook’s build-in online messenger.

Digsby (Cross-Platform)

Digsby is the first 3rd party messenger to support facebook’s chat feature. It is a cross-platform messenger available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. No hacks or plugins are required.
  • Just register for an Digsby account and login with it. 
  • Once you are logged in, click Add Account. 
  • Now in the Accounts tab, click Add IM Account and select Facebook 
  • Chat from the list.

  • Enter your facebook login details and start chatting.

  • It’s that simple!

Pidgin (Cross-Platform)

Pidgin is an opensource 3rd party IM that has a large user base but sadly till today there is no official support for facebook chat. The only way to connect with Facebook chat is through a plugin.
Grab the Facebook Chat Plugin for Pidgin and with it you can log into the Facebook servers, grab the buddy list, send/receive messages, add/remove friends, receive notifications, search for Facebook friends and set your Facebook status.
  • Once you have installed this plugin, you will find Facebook listed among the supported IMs.
add facebook to pidgin
  • Enter your facebook login details and click Add. 
  • Once added, you will see the list of facebook buddies that are online instantly.

Adium (Mac OS X)

Adium is a free opensource IM for Mac OS X. The latest version(1.3.3) has a build-in support for facebook chat, just login with your facebook account and you are good to go.

Above screenshot is taken from AllFacebook

Editor’s Note (Conclusion)

Digsby has an official support for Facebook Chat and is available for all three operating systems, Pidgin has no official support for Facebook Chat but can be added with a plugin, while Adium officially supports Facebook Chat but is only available for Mac OS X. I prefer to use Digsby since it is more user-friendly, has full support of Facebook chat, and is available for all popular OS. What do you think?

Instead of checking different email accounts on their websites respectively,  you can now manage all your email accounts from Gmail. All you need is to enable POP3 from your Yahoo, Hotmail, or any other account, POP 3 is a protocol that enables your emails to be accessed through any email client like MS Outlook, Outlook Express, or Mozilla Thunderbird etc.

To being, open your Gmail account and click Settings.
Gmail settings
Now navigate to Account tab and click on Add Another Email Account as shown in the screenshot.
gmail account settings
This will open a pop-up window and enter your email address there and click Next Step. The best thing about Gmail is that it will automatically detect the POP server and Port as you can see from the screenshot below.
add a mail account in gmail
If you want to leave a copy of an email that Gmail retrieves on your other email account, then select the Leave A Copy Of Retrieved Message On The Server checkbox. If you want all your incoming emails to skip Inbox and go straight to Archive then select the Archive Incoming Messages checkbox. After you are done click Add Account.
If you want to be able to send mail as the email you provided, then select Yes as shown in the screenshot below. You can always change the settings later.
send as yahoo in gmail
In the next and final step enter the name that you want to use when sending mail and you are done.
One big drawback of the email accounts you add is that they will be checked by Google on periodic basis. Even if you don’t want to make Gmail your email-client-of-choice, it’s gigantic space can still be used for making permanent backups. Start adding your accounts now, and if you face any problem, do let me know.
