Find the location of the current website's server

Flagfox is a simple Firefox extension that displays a flag icon to represent the current website's server location. Hovering your mouse over the flag will reveal the server's IP address, and double-clicking it provides access to a map of the server, ISP details, Whois records and more.

While this all sounds very basic, it's surprising just how useful Flagfox can be. If you've got used to your bank's website being hosted in your own country, for instance, then suddenly seeing that it's relocated to China is a good indication that you're actually on a phishing site. Quick access to Whois records is always useful if, say, you're trying to verify the credentials of a new online store before you place an order. And just being able to see at a glance that a site is hosted on the other side of the world can help to explain why it might be performing poorly, and reassure you that maybe your ISP isn't to blame, after all.

Flagfox is well designed, too, and requires very few system resources. The flag it displays is determined by accessing its own internal IP address database, for example - it doesn't use any form of online lookup. And in the unlikely event of any problems, you can post questions on the Flagfox forum where the extension's author regularly helps out.

Version 5.1.4 brings (Release Notes):

- IPv4 address location database updates for October 2015 (no v6 update from Maxmind)
- Update use of 'let' to work with newest Nightly changes
- Changed Geotool domain name to attempt to deal with DDoS


A simple way to add a little extra security to your browsing

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.
