CyberGhost 5
Surf the web anonymously with CyberGhost

It's easy to feel you're anonymous online, but the reality is very different: there are a host of tricks sites can use to find out more about you. And these can have very real consequences, perhaps with access to certain websites being blocked because your computer's IP address identifies the country where it's located.

Install CyberGhost, though, and the program sets up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) for you, routing all your web traffic through one of their servers, with your choice of country and IP address. This changes every time you connect, making it far more difficult for websites to identify you or track your activities. And the connection is encrypted, too, which means you're free to use wireless hotspots without worrying that others can intercept and read your traffic (even your internet provider won't be able to monitor what you're doing).

This is easy to use, too. There's no need to sign up for an account, and you don't have to worry about any complex network options: just click the Start button. That's it.

The free version does have some significant restrictions and issues. There's a 30-second delay when you first connect; you don't have as many countries or servers to choose from; there may be queues of others waiting to connect; when you do get online, speeds are limited to 1,000 kBits/s (the commercial editions get 6,000 kBits/s), and you'll be disconnected after three hours.

Despite this, the program generally works well, and it should be just fine if you're simply looking for an easier way to do some anonymous surfing. Not least because version 5 now includes anti-fingerprinting and content filter technologies which remove social network plugins, block tracking websites, and generally do an even better job of maintaining your privacy online.

Verdict:

An effective and easy-to-use privacy tool. The free version does have plenty of restrictions, though, which may become frustrating over time.

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.
