2. Zotero – Good for academic research and tracking citations

3. Linked in Toolbar for Firefox

4. Yoonoo and Digsby – Access to Facebook, Twitter, etc. all at one place

5. RescueTime – Analyzes your internet usage each day. You can set timers, goals, alarms.

6. Organize yourself/make the world smaller – With tools like StumbleUpon (and other social bookmarking tools like, e.g., del.icio.us) as well as Twitter search.

7. (YEF Blog Author added this) Use www.Alltop.com to see blogs by area of interest.
