Sandcat Browser 4.4
A portable Chromium-based browser with some useful security and developer-oriented tools

Sandcat is a portable browser based on the Chromium project. The program is targeted at penetration testers - people who test websites for security holes - but could also be useful for developers, or anyone else who would like a little more low-level control over their browsing.

Sandcat launches just like any browser, so the first thing you'll want to do is enter some starting URL, and watch as it loads. But then you might notice the tabs at the bottom of the window. Clicking "Source" provides instant access to the source code of the current page, while the "Resources" tab displays a list of page objects. And double-clicking any of the latter displays it in a preview pane along with the relevant HTTP headers and responses, so for instance you can view images, JavaScript functions or whatever else you might have.

Exploring the Sandcat browser then reveals more useful functionality. Enable "Live Headers", for instance, and you can watch as your browser tries to access various components of a page. There's an option to view the current page cookies. And a User Agent Changer means you can have Sandcat identify yourself as Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari or Opera, or customise the user agent to whatever you like.

You also get the usual developer tools, which allow you to view every element of your page and watch how it affects performance.

There's a lengthy list of features oriented more to penetration testers. You can load and run custom scripts, for instance, there's a request editor, a fuzzer extension, CGI scanner scripts, encoding and decoding tools, and more.

None of this functionality gets in the way, though. And so if you want to explore everything Sandcat has to offer, you can do so. But if you simply want a browser with easy cookie viewing and user agent configuration (or whatever), then it might also appeal: there's something here for most people.

Sandcat 4 includes enhanced Live Headers, Preview extensions, new consoles, extended LUA libraries, new pen-tester tools and more.

Verdict:

A capable security testing and developer-oriented browser, powerful and easy to use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.4

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.
