Orkut Helper Tools and Utilities

Since its launch on January 22, 2004 Orkut has gained enormous popularity and many helper tools for Orkut start flooding on internet. Here we will be discussing some of the most popular tools for orkut. For infomation about orkut kindly visit another articel on this site from here.

1.) Orkut Toolbar (Recommended for every orkut user):

Orkut Toolbar helps you to format the text of your posts in the Orkut forums. Works only on FireFox web browser.

With Orkut Toolbar all you need is type your entire text without any formatting code and then select the desired parts of text and apply the format using the toolbar buttons. Much like you does in OpenOffice, MS Word or any other text editor.

This Toolbar makes posting links and images within Orkut very easy. It is created by Renato Rodrigues.

For more information you can visit this site or Orkut Toolbar Forum.

2.) Changing Orkut Background:

If you are a Firefox user you got lots of options for changing the look and feel for orkut. In a message posted on http://insideorkut.blogspot.com I find a very nice example of changing Orkut background from baby blue to "various blues".

Here is a screen shot below: (taken from http://insideorkut.blogspot.com)


First install Grease Monkey (click here) then install Blukut hack (click here).

For more information on Grease Monkey check http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/index.html

Greasemonkey is a Firefox extension which lets you to add bits of DHTML ("user scripts") to any web page to change its behavior. In much the same way that user CSS lets you take control of a web page's style, user scripts let you easily control any aspect of a web page's design or interaction.

3.) Orkut Cute :

Orkut Cute is a freeware program which let you send scraps (the public messages that anyone can leave on anyone else's profile) to all your friends in Orkut and all your other online social networking communities. The program also informs you when you receive new scraps and new topics in yours communities.

Although such a program would allow you to communicate with the masses, a similar one was developed before which was abused by spammers.


  • Alerts you when you receive new scraps.
  • Scrap all of your friends (be careful with this one).
  • Receive notifications when forums are updated.

Visit there web site to get more information about the program.

4.) Scrapboy :

Scrapboy is a kind of browser for orkut. Using Scrapboy you can browse orkut and know when you or your friends receive new scraps. Sending scraps from your desktop is also as easy as writing an instant message. Keeping in touch with your friends was never more fun and easy.
