Comodo IceDragon 26
Comodo IceDragon is a secure, Mozilla based web browser

There is certainly plenty of choice in the web browser market these days – some browsers pride themselves on speed, some on extendibility, some on the level of customization that is available. Security is something that all web browsers will claim to offers, but Comodo is a company that produces a range of security software including tailored web browsers designed specifically with security in mind.

You may well have heard of Comodo Dragon which is a secure web browser based on a Chromium core; IceDragon is very much the same idea, but at the core is Mozilla. This is the first release of IceDragon so things are very much in the early stages and are not yet as developed as in Dragon. This is a great choice if you like the idea of a more secure browser and have become used to the way that Firefox works.

Being based on a Mozilla core means that you do not need to make the switch to Chrome, and just as with Comodo Dragon, the security features of IceDragon are multi-layered. You can use secure DNS settings to ensure that known malicious sites are automatically blocked, and this also has the added bonus of helping to improve page loading times.

Built in to the web browser is the Site Inspector which can be used to check the validity of any site you visit. While this is something that could easily be achieved in a different we browser with another extension, it’s a nice inclusion nonetheless. Another built-in extension, with far less of a security focus, makes it possible to share the current pages with your social networking contacts.

Comodo IceDragon 26.0.0.2 brings these changes:

 - conflict between drag&drop add-on and some sites; issue reported here.
- enabling hardware acceleration issue.
- skin related issues.

Verdict:

A great addition to the Comodo software range, this is a instantly accessible secure browser

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.
