Personally, I'm a huge fan of Gmail, Mailchimp, Basecamp and Skitch.
What are your favorites?
I use a lot of Google products, both for translation work and other side jobs I do. Google has some super useful tools, but I'll admit that I'm becoming a bit uncomfortable with the kind of universal access this one company has to what I do on the web. Probably I'm just paranoid, but right now I use Google IG, Google Docs, Gmail, YouTube, Chrome, and of course the Google search engine...There's probably something I'm forgetting, but that covers almost everything that I do in a typical work day! The only non-Google tool that I can think of would be Dropbox. And now, all those accounts are "linked," presumably for advertising purposes. Kind of creepy, considering some of the internet privacy (or rather, lack-of-privacy) laws that they've been trying to pass in America, lately. :P
