On the other hand I did come across to online applications that are both much cooler than Chrome. I’ll start with the one I found second. This may sound lame but I’ve never heard of Scribefire until today. While I was reading around about Chrome I ran across Jim’s critique (linked above) and he mentioned this app called Scribefire that he uses to blog. I just finished installing it and I’m using it to write this very post and it is cool as all get-out. Links are easier, I don’t have to fiddle with the Blogger Dashboard, I don’t have to sign out of my wife’s account and then sign into mine, this is awesome.
The second (really the first) app that’s cooler than Chrome is a Hebrew/Greek vocab program I found a couple of days ago. For some absurd reason I accidentally deleted my Hebrew vocab software a few months ago and I’m in pretty dire need of it right now. This internet app, however, kicks the living crap out of my old software (Teknia in case you were curious). It also kicks the crap out of Greekflash Pro. You can run standard flashcards, you can do fill-in-the-blank quizzes, you can do multiple-choice quizzes, or you can do a combination of these. It runs the quizzes based on part of speech and frequency, and the best part is that if you get a word wrong that word gets cycled back into the mix radomly and appears many, many times. At any rate I’m finding it very helpful.
Both of these apps, which are cooler than Chrome simply by the virtue of being more useful, are now available in the Links section on the sidebar.
