Freegate 7.40
An easy-to-use anonymous browsing tool

Freegate provides a simple and straightforward way to browse the web via anonymous proxies, so hiding your location from websites and perhaps allowing you to bypass local restrictions on the sites you can view.

There's nothing to install, and so no chance of Freegate messing up your network settings; just launch it, and after a brief one-time setup the program will connect to a few proxy servers. It will also open a browser window at a Chinese-language website (Freegate is aimed at internet users in China, though it works elsewhere as well), but there are no other marketing or adware hassles. Enter some other URL and you can browse more or less as normal.

As with most similar tools, we found a few performance issues. There were several occasions when pages took longer to load than we might have expected, or froze for a moment. For the most part, though, the program worked very well.

If you want an easy way to bypass some IP-related restriction for general browsing, then, Freegate is ideal. There's no way to tell how secure your traffic might be, though, so we'd recommend you turn the program off before doing anything sensitive or password-protected (shopping, online banking and so on).

Verdict:

A simple and straightforward proxy tool

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
