Because why not?

I'll start it off:

Gmail (http://gmail.com) - Its mail from google.

Google Reader (http://reader.google.com) - Is there a better way to use the web?

Ninite (http://ninite.com) - *nix users might be familiar with apt. This is like that, but for windows and not as robust. I am running it on a new install right now. It inspired this post. It is awesome.

Dropbox (http://dropbox.com) - I mainly use it for file syncing across computers with the desktop app, but the webapp's no slouch.

Sure, I'm game.

Toodledo (http://www.toodledo.com) - The best online task manager I've found so far; it also has an iPhone app it syncs nicely with.

PiratePad (http://piratepad.net/) - Powered by the software that ran Etherpad (http://etherpad.com/) before that was shut down, allows you to collaboratively edit text by just sharing a URL with people. Not for private things, but good for quickly workshopping something.

Google Wave (http://wave.google.com) - Much more sophisticated collaborative editing, we use this to plan out the IM podcast and it works pretty great.

Google Docs (http://docs.google.com) is pretty awesome too. Anything with Google in the name, basically. ;)

By the way, anyone interested in signing up for Dropbox should use this link:

It is like a normal signup, but gives me an extra 250 MB (:D)
