January 29, 2008 in Utility (E)


Chicago, Illinois - January 29, 2008 - Helium Foot Software enthusiastically announces its new philanthropy program supporting the National Cancer Coalition (NCC). Effective immediately, Helium Foot customers can opt to make a contribution to NCC when purchasing any Helium Foot product. This contribution will be matched 100% by Helium Foot Software, thus doubling the donation. Any credit card processing fees will be paid for by Helium Foot Software. NCC's mission is to reduce the suffering of cancer patients and their families around the world by meeting their unfulfilled needs. NCC accomplishes this mission through a combination of medical and financial relief as well as research and educational programs. Additionally, NCC's stellar operating efficiency has been recognized by Charity Navigator with their highest rating.

Helium Foot Software is also proud to announce version 1.1 of MercuryMover, the keyboard-controlled, Window moving and resizing utility for Mac OS X. Version 1.1 introduces the ability to customize the modifier keys (Shift, Option, etc). For example, users can set the Shift key to move or resize the target window by 100 pixels instead of 10.
