Faster FireFoxSome top tips to make your FireFox install even faster by tweaking the config file. Also check these optimization suggestions from last February, back when Firefox was still Firebird, but they're still applicable today. I'm an Opera user most of the time myself, but I do like to use FF occasionally and anything that improves it even more over MSIE is a good thing in my book.

Nordic Chill
Some seasonal athletic gameplay with Nordic Chill. Take part in the cross country skiing, shooting, ski jump and curling. I actually thought the curling was the best bit, but it's the end part of the game so you'll need to have patience.

Paper Islands
Weird - Paper Islands is a web site made entirely out of paper. Well maybe there's a little bit of flash animation as well...

I've just scratched the very tip of the iceberg in playing Perplexcity - it seems you need to get really immersed in it, and it's more a long term project than a simple game. If you thought it took a long time to play some of those point and click adventures this is going to seem ridiculous. From the first couple of pages you just have to hunt for the hidden links, but after that there's a whole world out there waiting for you to investigate. I used the Project Syzygy primer to bring me up to speed with what on earth was going on with the game which I can highly recommend.

Pixelville Pensioners
Help build a retirement home for the 8-bit sprites who are now getting a bit passed it, in Pixelville Pensioners, a Spectrum influenced point'n'click game. Make an effort and put something back in for those games that gave you pleasure in the past so that they may see out their retirement years in comfort.

Overtime At Santa's Factory
Some slightly late (sorry) seasonal point'n'clickery adventure as you do some Overtime At Santa's Factory. Can you get your choice of present out the toy factory? Top tips are to remember to be good at the begining of the game - would Santa really try delivering you a present if you've been naughty, and refer to the 'in case of emergency' memo on the wall if you want to know what you need to do.

The Cubes
Recreate the drudgery of your own corporate drone job, or take a look and see what it would be like, if you are lucky enough to have an exciting job, by building your own cube farm with The Cubes.

Doom '95
Did you know you can download the original Doom for free? Did you know it's only 4.3Mb in Size? Did you know that includes a networking capability so that on a quiet day in the office, like New Year's Eve, you can turn a dull afternoon into a two hour fragfest? I found out today and I had to share the news with you.

Festive Holiday Card
I know it's a little late but this festive holiday card is a very pleasing flash thingumy to play with. Move your mouse around and see what happens, pull the lever to really mix it up.

Hot Seat Gunner
Girl meets oversize killer robot, girl falls in love with oversize killer robot, girl brutally destroys oversize killer robot. Some might see Hot Seat Gunner as a modern fairytale, others might see it as a complicated application of Newtonian physics, and yet others might see it as game with a girl with a gun.

Santa Santa Santa
Is it a badger, is it a banana, is it the footy, no it's santa (a bit late because I wasn't on-line much just before Christmas - oops). Dancing badgers (however they are dressed) are the pinnacle of internet content.
