Firefox 43 Beta 7
Check out the next version of Firefox before it's released

Firefox Beta is the build for those who like a little bit of jeopardy, but who don’t want to risk everything by trying out Firefox Aurora, the early alpha build of Firefox. Firefox Beta gives you a sneak peek at the next version of Firefox six weeks ahead of its final release, offering a relatively stable build that’s not quite ready for primetime, but still pretty solid.

Whereas Firefox Aurora installs as a completely separate application alongside your existing Firefox installation, Firebox Beta will replace the stable build. Should you subsequently wish to go back to the safer version, you’ll need to manually download the stable version and install it over the top of the beta build.

Confirm which build you have by selecting About Firefox from the Firefox menu or button (it’s inside the Help menu if using the Firefox button).

Firefox 43 is now in the Beta channel. New features include:

NEW. Firefox now automatically shows the on-screen touch keyboard on Windows 8 and higher
NEW. Improved API support for m4v video playback 1
NEW. Search suggestions can be displayed in the Awesome Bar
NEW. WebRTC streaming on multiple monitors
NEW. Improved Big5 support for Hong Kong supplementary characters on Windows XP
NEW. GTK3 integration (GNU/Linux only)
NEW. User selectable second block list for Private Browsing's Tracking Protection


Version 41 includes a improved private browsing and more.

Your Comments & Opinion

Firefox 24

I think in your review it need to be specified that Firefox while it may run on a 64 bit system is not by any means a 64 bit browser. One does not get the performance out of a 32 bit browser on a 64 bit system than they would with a 64 bit browser.
Firefox 32 bit browser is actually slower than IE 10 x64. reply:

Thanks Edward. This isn't really a 'review' as such as the Firefox Beta is updated every few weeks, so we can't justify/afford to commission a new review each time, so it's written up to be very generic.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
