Apple Safari for Lion 6
Apple's web browser is a cross-platform tool that brings competition to Chrome and Firefox

Mac and iPhone users will be familiar with Safari, but for a long time the web browser race for PC owners was a two horse race between Firefox and Internet Explorer. With the addition of Opera, Google Chrome and Apple Safari to the competition, there is now plenty of choice for web surfers. Available for both Windows and Mac, Safari boasts a familiar Apple look and feel, and brings a number of interesting features to the table.

Integrated support for PDF files means that there is no need to install a dedicated tool to view such documents when they are encountered online and the browser also makes it easy to return to sites you have previously visited. Safari logs each of the sites you visit and presents them in an iTunes style interface known as Cover Flow. This means that as well as using keywords to track down sites, it is also possible to browse through site preview images to allow for quick identification. In a similar vein, the Top Sites feature provides a graphical representation of your favourite web sites which can be visited with a single click.

With support for new, emerging and established web technologies, Safari is a browser with a strong focus on performance as well as security. Features, speed and good looks mean that Apple's web browser is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore and is well worth taking for a test drive.

Safari for Lion v6 is a brand new version. Key improvements found in Safari 6 for Lion include a unified search and Address bar, bringing Safari into line with rival browsers. It also sees the introduction of an Offline Reading List, Do Not Track privacy feature and new password pane.

Verdict:

Safari is everything a web browser should be and more. Whether it is your primary browser or not, it is well worth installing.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
