Find out more about how your PC is being used online

If you want to find out which sites someone's been accessing on your PC then you've always been able to check their cookies folder, which generally provides a few clues (the domain name, basically).

Google Analytics cookies can provide extra details, though, including the search keywords used to find a site, the number of times a site has been visited, and the date and time of the last two visits. Intrigued? The Google Analytics Cookie Cruncher can tell you more.

Launch the program and you must first choose the browser you'd like to examine (there's support for IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari).

Next, point Google Analytics Cookie Cruncher at the folder containing your browser's cookies (a Help pane offers useful clues).

Finally, choose a folder for your reports, click Process, and that's it: within a moment or two the program will have processed your cookies and created several CSV files with whatever browser activity details it's found.

There are several usability issues here. It's annoying that you have to manually browse to the default cookie folder each time, for instance (the program already knows where this is, it should at least start at that location). And ideally it should display the cookies first, rather than just dumping them to a file and assuming you have a suitable viewer to hand.

If you just want to find out more about what someone's doing online, though, Google Analytics Cookie Cruncher could prove very useful, and there's certainly more than enough power here to justify the tiny download.


An interesting tool which helps to show just how Google Analytics can track your activities online

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.
