INTERNET

DUCKDUCKGO SEARCH ENGINE (NOT AN APP - COPY URL TO YOUR BROWSER)
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. Better than Google despite its strange name. It does not filter the search results according to your previous searches
nor those most frequently visited, and does not  put "sponsored" links on the top of the page of search results. The latter has gotten much worse over the
last year or two (as of 11/17) and I rarely use Google any more. For scientific searches I have found it to be especially better than Google.

THUNDERBIRD
Email client from Mozilla. Excellent.

GOOGLE EARTH
Downloadable file that, once executed, allows you to zoom into anywhere on the planet (down to street level). Requires broadband connection since it
functions online. Also requires a 'good' video processor (as defined by Google). Must use Google download for Linux.

WEB EXPRESS (FROM THIS LINK GO TO /WPK/WEBEX/webex.exe)
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.  This web site creator was used to create the present website and is now free. Just unzip the folder that this link points to -
this  yields the executable file. It  supports features not used in this website such as frames but does not support rollovers nor secure ftp uploads (some web
hosting sites will therefore not accept them). However, secure ftp uploads can be accomplished using third party ftp apps. The present version is 4.0 and seems faster
and/or more stable than 3.x.
