Download of the Day: PureText (I Love This App)

PureText strips the formatting from any text selection that you copy. The developer explains its function very well:
Have you ever copied some text from a web page or a document and then wanted to paste it as simple text into another application without getting all the formatting from the original source? PureText makes this simple by adding a new Windows hot-key (default is WINDOWS+V) that allows you to paste text to any application without formatting.
As I said, I really love this app. It allows me to skip that intermediate step using Notepad to strip the formatting out between copying text from a webpage and pasting it into Word or a blog. Over time, it'll probably save several thousands extraneous clicks.

(You might be able to notice that I did not use PureText to copy the selection above.)
