Internet Explorer 11
IE's latest release is faster than ever

Internet Explorer 11 is the latest incarnation of Microsoft's browser for Windows 7 users (it's already built into Windows 8.1).

The new release places a major focus on performance. JPEG decoding and text rendering is now done on the GPU; HTML 5 prefetching and pre-rendering helps to get pages ready before you even click the link; Chakra, IE's JavaScript engine, is 4% faster than previously (and it was already very fast before).

New or enhanced support for a host of web standards will help to extend the browser's capabilities. WebGL can create interactive 2D and 3D environments, for instance; Media Source Extensions (MSE) allows IE to automatically switch video bitrates depending on network conditions, delivering smoother playback (although only on Windows 8.1 at the moment); the browser can now download video without caching it to disk, extending battery life; and support for the HTML Full Screen API means videos can now fill the screen.

Elsewhere, extended support for more HTML5 and CSS properties will make web pages look better than ever; the developer tools have been redesigned; and there are various other smaller fixes and tweaks (Microsoft says IE11 "includes extensive improvements to the built-in text editor", for instance, although we're not sure exactly what they are).


There's nothing revolutionary here, but IE11 does include some welcome performance enhancements

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
