Three items of possible utility and/or interest:
1. Foxit Reader
for PDFs on Firefox. Omg, yes! Why did no one tell me about this? Acrobat has been a major PIA forever. Hate, hate. This is so much better. Love. Love.

FF add-on warns of compromised Internet connection. What you want when accessing a sensitive site (your bank, anything where you are worried about security). Read about it here
3. Corduroy Mansions
is a new online novel in serial form by Alexander McCall Smith, for Telegraph.co.uk. Beginning tomorrow, a new chapter will appear on the site each weekday for the next 20 weeks - but you can also have them emailed to you, listen to a podcast or read via rss.
I have no idea what this will be like - at all - but I signed up for the email because the name "Corduroy Mansions" gives me the feeling of some kind of UK version of a "Tales of the City" sort of thing. Anyway, it has a dog, so it can't be all bad. We'll see.
