Configuration Mania in Windows
Access deeply embedded tweaks via Configuration Mania’s one-stop shop.

Most web browsers hide their more advanced settings behind an arcane list-based interface. To access this list in Firefox, for example, you type about:config, heed the warnings and then… What? Tweaking settings involves typing in the name of part or all of the setting in question, then double-clicking it to change its status. All very time-consuming.

Configuration Mania aims to change all that – this handy add-on is accessible from the Firefox > Options menu, and breaks down all its supported tweaks into six sections, each of which is further divided by a series of sub-categories. There are dozens – if not hundreds – of available tweaks here, but it’s by no means comprehensive, although users are invited to submit their own feature requests for future versions.

There’s also no documentation for the casual user, although you can right-click any setting and choose Search in MozillaZine Knowledge Base to find out more about it. It’s a little fiddly – a short pop-up description might help, particularly if it referenced the original about:config tweak – but better than nothing, and the app does a reasonable job of describing what each setting does.

As with about:config tweaks themselves, using Configuration Mania is potentially very dangerous: however, it has a handy Reset button that applies only to the selected tab’s tweaks, so you can selectively undo changes you’ve made without having to reset your browser to all its defaults.

Version 1.23.2015110501 brings (Changelog):
•UI Enhancement•The obsolute/require-msg tag such as "Obsolete since Firefox XX" has changed to be highlighted on mouse over. (issue #203)
•"UI"->"Other"->"Unix (X-Window) style mouse behaviour"->"Go to URL stored in clipboard by middle mouse click" has changed to be disabled when "Paste when clicked middle mouse button" is checked. (issue #204)


If you’re an advanced user looking for a shortcut to the about:config section in Firefox, then Configuration Mania is well worth checking out.

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.
