Firefox Sync
Firefox-only addon that enables you to keep your information synchronised between computers

Install Firefox on your work laptop and you’ll want to have access to the same bookmarks, preferences, standard form information and even your passwords. If you spend time browsing the same sites, you’ll want the browser to remember and store this information. Problem is that we might add a bookmark to Firefox on our desktop PC, then forget it’s not available on our laptop.

Firefox Sync is the solution. This is an official Firefox add-on from Mozilla that enables you to share your browser information across every edition of Firefox where you have Sync installed. You create an account, enter a unique username and dual-password, then on first run the information is stored on a secure remote server. Install Weave on another computer, log in, then the information is synchronised back to the new machine.

Firefox Sync will synchronise your bookmarks, stored passwords, the information you use regularly within web forms, some of your most important preferences, your browsing history and even your open tabs.

The biggest problem with using Firefox Sync is that it only synchronises your Firefox-based information. XMarks will attempt to synchronise information across your different web browsers.

Important: Firefox Sync is now built in to Firefox 4 onwards. This is included for legacy Firefox 3.x users only


Official addon from Mozilla that enables you to synchronise your Firefox information across your computers. Problem is, it only supports Firefox.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

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 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
