Google Wave

Google Wave is a product that helps users communicate and collaborate on the web. A "wave" is equal parts conversation and document, where users can almost instantly communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. Google Wave is also a platform with a rich set of open APIs that allow developers to embed waves in other web services and to build extensions that work inside waves.

A wave is equal parts conversation and document. People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.

A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.

A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.

Are you bored looking at your same old firefox themes and colors? Here is the treat for your eyes. Personas from Mozilla Labs, a open source which can do wonders in your browser.

Personas allow you to “skin” the top and bottom areas of Firefox only (the header and footer of the browser chrome) without any change to the look of the navigation buttons or menus. With Personas, you can easily switch between many different lightweight skins with no further installation required.

Like Personas, a Firefox theme is a type of Firefox add-on that extends the functionality of your browser and allows you to “skin” it in a variety of ways. However, unlike Personas, a theme changes the appearance of navigation buttons, toolbars and menus.
