CloudyTab 1.1
Open your iCloud tabs in your default web browser, even if it’s not Safari.

If you frequently switch between iPad, iPhone and Mac, one of iCloud’s best features will be its Tabs function, which lets you sync your open browser tabs in the cloud. Unsurprisingly it’s only designed to work with Safari, which is fine if you’re a fan of all things Apple, but not so great if you prefer an alternative browser.

CloudyTabs is an add-on that partially fixes the Mac-end of this problem. CloudyTabs adds extensions for whichever web browser you’ve set as your default on your Mac (including Firefox and Chrome), allowing you to access any open tabs currently synced via iCloud Tabs through either browser.

It’s simple to set up and install: download, unzip and drag CloudyTabs to your Applications folder, then attempt to open it. If Mavericks complains about it being from an unidentified developer, open System Preferences > Security & Privacy and click Open Anyway to unblock it.

You’ll now see the CloudyTabs icon appear in the menu bar – click this to see which tabs are open on which devices, then click one to open it in your default browser, or [Cmd]-click to open it in the background. You can also open all the tabs from a specific device via the Open All Tabs From menu, or type the first few letters of a tab to select it.

Want to know when your Mac last synced with iCloud Tabs? Simply hover the mouse over the CloudyTabs menu bar icon and wait.

And that’s basically it – CloudyTabs is a neat shortcut for accessing your synced tabs through a different default web browser to Safari, but it doesn’t work in the opposite direction, so if you want true two-way syncing you’ll need Safari, or install and use the Chrome for iOS app to sync between that and Chrome on your Mac.

What's new in v1.1?

- Reduces the minimum required OS X version to 10.8.2
- Fixes a favicon-related bug that caused CloudyTabs to crash on launch

Verdict:

Does what it says on the tin, but you can't sync back from changes made in your default browser to iCloud.

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.
