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

Verdict:

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

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.
