Undoubetly the best MP3 player in this universe. Well, actually that is not entirely a true statement since there is probably no audio file format that this cool thing does not support and MP3 is but one of them. In fact, I would incur the wrath of millions of Winamp users if I classify it as a MP3 player. To it's many fans Winamp is not a player. It's a lifestyle.
CDex is a is utility which can extract / rip Digital Audio tracks from your Audio CD and save it as MP3 files onto your hard disk. For those who are still wondering why they need such a software, its because of this: an audio CD stores the track information in a WAV format. With this format, lets say a 5 minute song takes about 30 to 40 MB of space on your CD. If you directly store the track on your hard disk in this format, its goodbye to your precious hard disk space. With CDex you can rip audio tracks from the CD and easily store them on the hard disk in the popular MP3 format which compresses the file 10 to 12 times to a more manageable size of around 3 to 4 MB.
ICQ 2000b
If you don't know what ICQ is then you really are new to the net. This is probably the best instant messenger available today. Chat with millions of registered icq users. The latest version even allows you to send SMS messages to mobile phones in any part of the world. The amount of features available on ICQ makes MSN and Yahoo messengers look like poor imitations. Need I say more?
