Buttonz & Tilez!
Buttonz & Tilez! is an award-winning software package that should make the life of webmasters easier. The package includes 2 applications, "Buttonz!", which creates buttons of various shapes, and "Tilez!", which renders seamless textures.
Tilez! textures are created using a procedural approach. You can choose from 20 basic texture types, all of which can be modified to suit your needs. Additionaly, textures can be combined in layers to produce more complex ones. You can even import images to include them in a texture as a layer. And finally, to make this tool totally addictive, you can enter you're own expressions for coloring and displacing pixels, making Tilez! a real mind toy.
Buttonz! renders buttons with various bevel types and shapes from either an imported image, or using a procedural texture. Various text effects are included. Additionally, Buttonz! supports the batch rendering of multiple buttons from the same template, each having a different caption - no more layered cut & paste work in your image processing software!

It controls Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator from an un-obtrusive, sit in your tray, application that provides an interface to resize either browser to the standard screen resolutions. Isn't it annoying to change your development machine's resolution just to test for people who haven't figured out that they can change THEIR screen resolution?

A nice tool for web designers and programmers. You want to test how your program or web site looks on a screen with lower resolution than your's? You can change your screen's resolution of course.

All you have to do is to select the desired size and then click on the big button. The next window that becomes the forground window (by clicking on that window or it's taskbar button) will be resized.
