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.

Verdict:

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

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.
