One thing that I don’t like about Microsoft Word 2007 is the lack of tabbed documents. That is, when you open multiple Word documents, each document has its own icon in the task bar. You need to purhcase a hunting license if you have 3 or more open along with other applications. Not any more. I found the solution. This free add-inprogram gives you Tabbed browsing in Word 2007 and 2010. Navigating Word documents is now as easy as navigating websites in multiple tabbed browswers. And, the add-in is free.

When you import data in Microsoft Excel from an external data source, it often comes with some extra spaces. These spaces are invisible and, in fact, present no problem unless you have to process data further, say, to remove duplicates. If you try to do this using the standard Excel function, or our add-in for removing duplicates, no duplicate entries will be found, though you definitely know they do exist in your worksheet. The reason is obvious - excess leading or trailing spaces that you are not even aware of. The Trim Spaces add-in for Excel works in Microsoft Excel 2007, 2003, 2002 (XP) and 2000. And it’s free.

Google unveiled an early version of Hotpot in a blog post yesterday, and I think Hotpot has some attributes that could help it achieve modest success.
