Move over, Navigator and Explorer. A freebie called Alexa (http://www.alexa.com) is the coolest browser-booster around. As you surf the Net, Alexa--which appears as a tiny toolbar at the bottom of your screen--helps steer you to where you should go next. As you settle on a Web site, it lists related sites you might want to check out. You can even find out the name and contact information of site owners, how often that site is visited and how fast it can turn pages.

Alexa is stuffed full of helpful tools. For instance, if you run across a page in which you see the message "file not found," Alexa can show you a previous version of the page. There's even a link to an online dictionary, and a thesaurus, too.
