TextWrangler 0 votes

TextWrangler is a text editor for Mac OS X from Bare Bones Software. It was originally a commercial product, but (beginning with version 2.0) has become the freeware alternative to their flagship editor, BBEdit, and the successor to their previous freeware editor, BBEdit Lite.
Like BBEdit, TextWrangler is not a word processor and so lacks formatting and style options — it is limited to editing and manipulation of plain text, but while this limits desktop publications, it allows for much greater power and flexibility editing text. TextWrangler has features common to most programming text editors, such as syntax highlighting for various programming languages, a find and replace function, spell check, and file comparison. But TextWrangler also includes extensive scripting support using AppleScript, Python, Perl, Shell scripts, and BBEdit's native Text Factories. TextWrangler's find and replace allows the use of regular expressions. Python, Perl, and shell scripts can be run directly in the program. TextWrangler also provides numerous options for reformatting text.
Like some other Mac editors, TextWrangler can read and save files in various encodings, including Unicode (various encodings), ASCII, Latin-1 and Latin-9.
TextWrangler is intended for use by programmers, web designers, and others who spend time reading and writing source code.

C++ Template Image Processing Toolkit

The CImg Library is an open source, C++ toolkit for image processing.

NoScript 0 votes

The NoScript Firefox extension provides extra protection for Firefox, Seamonkey and other mozilla-based browsers: this free, open source add-on allows JavaScript, Java and Flash and other plugins to be executed only by trusted web sites of your choice (e.g. your online bank), and provides the most powerful Anti-XSS protection available in a browser.

NoScript's unique whitelist based pre-emptive script blocking approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and even not known yet!) with no loss of functionality…

NotScripts 0 votes

NotScripts is a break through Google Chrome extension that gives you greater control over what javascript, iframes, and plugins run in your browser to increase security and lower the CPU usage. NotScripts can help to mitigate attacks like cross-site scripting (XSS) and drive by downloads by giving you control over what third-party javascript and content loads on the sites you visit.

NotScripts uses a unique and novel method to provide this “NoScript” like functionality in Google Chrome that was not previously possible. It introduces a break through technique of intelligent HTML5 storage caching to over come the limitations in Google Chrome that prevented an extension like this from being made before. This is one of the key extensions that many people have been waiting for since Google Chrome came out.

NotScripts is inspired by the “NoScript” addon for Firefox and seeks to emulate it within the limitations of the Google Chrome extensions API. It is not affiliated with “NoScript“, I just happen to like it’s functionality and wanted it on Google Chrome.
