Adobe Flash Player for Other Browsers
Install this plugin in your browser to watch the latest Flash player content

It’s been a long time coming, but at last Flash Player is about to go 64-bit. Anyone with a 64-bit browser will have been frustrated in their attempts to watch Flash content as until now Flash Player remained resolutely 32-bit only, unless you were willing to install the previous release of Adobe Flash Player Square. That will finally change, and if you can’t wait then install the beta now to gain full functionality through your 64-bit browser.

Adobe Flash Player is required to access web pages that have embedded Flash content in them. With the shift to HTML5, the need for a separate plug-in to access video and audio will probably start to fade in the coming years, but for now Flash content is still popular and prevalent, making Flash Player an essential plug-in for any browser user.

Flash Player also sees a number of other technological advances in addition for 64-bit browser support, the most notable of which is Stage3D Accelerated Graphics Rendering, which has also been added to Adobe AIR 3, Adobe’s cross-platform runtime environment. It’s basically Adobe’s technology for letting Flash content harness hardware-accelerated graphics rendering and follows recent browser developments whereby they too harness the power of your GPU to improve video performance.

Other additions include G.711 audio compression for telephony, H.264/AVC SW encoding for streaming video and HD surround sound support.

As with previous versions of Flash Player, there are separate versions for Internet Explorer and all other browsers.

Verdict:

Must-have plugin for any web browser, which enables you to watch and view the very best online Flash content

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
