For about three years, the A.V. Club ran Sawbuck Gamer
, a regular column reviewing the week's most notable free and cheap games across all platforms, from web games to handhelds to console downloadables. It's a treasure trove of content, especially since more literary sister site The Gameological Society took the helm
, and it's publicized great desktop projects like the luscious platformer Frogatto
), feature-rich Super Mario Bros. X
), the evocative faux-web Digital: A Love Story
), interactive fiction gem Rover's Day Off
, and the hyperkinetic RunMan: Race Around the World
). But if you're in the mood for something more immediate, why not start with a list of all the original column's free A-rated online titles? [more inside]

Plainview is a free full-screen web browser
for your mac.
Until now, you had two options for showing Internet work: capture it all to Quicktime and throw it into Powerpoint or Keynote (looks nice but no interactivity as everything has to be canned) or show it in your browser (interactive but with ugly chrome distracting people from your beautiful sites).
So here's a third option. Fire up your full-screen browser and let your audience focus on the work. [more inside]

iCab 2.1 is out
for a program written from scratch by one or two people (Alexander Clauss seems to be the lead), it's astounding. Absolutely full support for HTML 4 – every extended character (iCab seems to use its own font), weirdo tags like LONGDESC, ACRONYM, and ABBR, TITLEs on everything (no popups: text appears in status line). Filter out ads automatically. Only browser other than Lynx that handles metadata like LINK REL="next". The damn thing validates your code for you
(click the smiling or frowning icon at the right of the address bar). And so on. And so on. I love this program. And yes, I'm in the minority
. What else is new?

is reporting that Microsoft has disbanded the IE for Mac team and is discontinuing development of IE for Mac. So much for a 5 year commitment....
