A multiplayer, text, third-person shooter originally made for DOS, but I know it from Novell Netware.
I had a hell of a lot of fun with it. Perhaps it's nostalgia which makes me stay so fond of it, but I think the fundamental gameplay still holds up today. I could easily imagine a great updated version of this but I have and still do see this same gameplay in all sorts of other top-down games.
A straightforward GUI text editor.

Todo - as-yet untested

Brave is a web browser that uses components from Chrome to build a more security-conscious browser which also has an alternate advertising mechanism with revenue sharing.
