Editors' review

Add functions and skins to your desktop with this plug-in utility, although some features are more glitzy than beneficial. It has a dull but straightforward interface with an online help file. Brass installs with five plug-ins that must be reloaded each time you run the program. The Newsgrinder plug-in displays titles of user-selected RSS feeds. Simply click the title to open the full post in your browser. We found the MIME mouse gestures easy to configure, edit, and use. The Desktop Text File is aimed at system administrators looking to monitor log files. It was simple to load a file and choose desktop text opacity. In the style-over-substance category are the Basic Start Options and NASA plug-ins. Basic Start Options primarily alter the Windows Start button look and feel and serve no true function. The NASA plug-in takes the NASA Image of the Day and places it on your desktop. Registered users of Brass are promised additional plug-ins. Though Brass works well and is easy to load and configure, we feel other plug-in utility systems offer much more functionality.
