Echofon, a Firefox extension for Twitter
Echofon gives you a Twitter client inside Firefox

One of the joys of Twitter is that it provides such a wide scope for third party clients, enabling you to choose how you’d like to interact with your timeline. Sometimes you might want to be able to check your tweets without leaving whatever web page you’re viewing. Thankfully there’s a client that can help you out.

Echofon is a Firefox add-on which provides you with a client right there within your browser. It’s ideal if you like to live on the web and use a lot of web based apps. It also provides you with the opportunity to monitor your tweets while watching web video. It’s pretty simple to use and does away with much of the more sophisticated filtering that many clients offer. Instead, the focus is on keeping you up to date.

Once installed, double click the Echofon icon in the Firefox status bar to see your tweets. Right click the icon and choose Preferences to add Twitter accounts, select a theme and make other tweaks. You can change the frequency of updates and the length of time that notification pop-ups are displayed here too. In the main app, you have access to tabs showing your full timeline, any replies you have and your direct messages. There’s no scope for adding Twitter lists or other filtered columns though.

The Firefox add-on is only part of the Echofon family; there are related apps for the iPhone and Mac as well, although these have a wider range of features.

Verdict:

A solid client that’s useful if you want to stay within Firefox, but it lacks essential filtering capabilities and columns.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
