Appendix B. Useful Web Sites

Throughout this book, you’ve learned about a number of great Web sites where you can download handy software or get valuable information. Odds are, you’ll want to revisit some of these sites to keep honing your Web skills (or just get free stuff). To save you the effort of leafing through hundreds of pages, this appendix repeats all these links, grouped by chapter.

Tip

To avoid carpal tunnel syndrome, you don’t need to painstakingly type these URLs into your browser. Instead, use the online version of this appendix that’s located on the “Missing CD” page at www.missingmanuals.com. That way, once you’ve found the link you want, you’re just a click away. Also, it’s worth checking this page for late-breaking changes (like URLs that have moved to another location).

Chapter Links

The following tables list the links found in each chapter. Links are presented in the same order that they occur in the text. You’ll find all kinds of links here. Some point to useful tutorial sites and articles, others to Web curiosities, and still more point to handy free tools or downloadable pictures and media. Particularly important or noteworthy links are printed in bold.
