Pale Moon Commander 0.6
Pale Moon Commander provides a friendlier alternative to the about:config screen.

Anyone who’s ventured into the depths of their Mozilla-based browser’s configuration settings with the immortal line, about:config, will appreciate the effort behind this browser add-on. It’s been developed by the brains behind the Pale Moon browser for Windows, but while the tool has been developed with that variant in mind, many of its functions will work in Firefox for Windows too.

Once installed, open your browser’s main menu, click Options and select Advanced options… to open the Pale Moon Commander dialog. The available tweaks are divided into six separate sections, each of which splits its available tweaks in tabs – it’s basically the same layout as used by Firefox’s own Options dialog, so should be familiar to most.

Notable tweaks include enabling and disabling various developer tools (as well as the inline PDF viewer) via Other > Tools. Fancy enabling the HTTP pipelining tweaks, which *might* boost page-loading times? Do so via Network > Pipelining. Boost maximum HTTP connections per server via Network > HTTP, and enable JIT profiling via Performance > JavaScript.

Also check out the User Interface section, where you can tweak tabs, the Windows 7/8 Jump List feature and change the way your browser displays web addresses via the General section. Missing the browser padlock that highlights a secure site? Visit Security > Padlock where you can bring it back, choose where to place it and implement border shading for additional emphasis.

Several of the tweaks are specifically for Pale Moon users only – enabling these in other Mozilla variants will simply have no effect either way. If you go too far, you’ll find a reset button under Other > Reset, but it won’t simply undo any changes you’ve made using Pale Moon Commander; it’ll reset all your browser preferences to their defaults, so as the developer says, use it – as you would with the about:config tweaks themselves – with extreme care.

There are other similar add-ons out there – Configuration Mania is cross-platform, for example – but Pale Moon Commander’s interface and selection of tweaks make it worthy of a closer look.

Verdict:

A good choice for advanced users who tire of having to enter about:config to make specific tweaks.

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.
