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.

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.
