Xara Web Designer 10.1.3
Create stylish, feature-packed websites, no HTML experience required

Xara Web Designer 10 is a template-based design tool which makes it quick and easy to create quality websites.

The program comes with 40 professionally-produced multipage web designs. Each one can immediately be enhanced with your preferred buttons, headings, navigation bars, photos, icons, and more. Just drag and drop an item onto your page and customise it to suit your needs.

If you'd like to add some interactivity to your site then you'll appreciate the program's widgets. These can embed YouTube videos on your pages, Google Maps, Facebook Like and Twitter buttons, media players, contact forms, news feeds and more.

All of this can be further tweaked or rearranged as necessary. You can even build a site from scratch if the bundled templates don't appeal. And once you've finished, the program will put the site online for you, either at your own web host or using the free web space at MAGIX Online World.

New features start with SmartShapes, a quick and easy way to draw and edit common graphical objects: arrows, text panels, speech bubbles and so on.

The Online Content Catalog helps you browse available content, while a new top-level Insert menu makes it easier to add objects to the page.

There's a new password-protection option for sites hosted at MAGIX Online World. You get five new website templates, and there are new widgets for Instagram, LinkedIn and Pinterest.

Xara Web Designer 10 is a very capable tool, but if you need more power then you may prefer the Premium edition. This adds tools to create presentations, animations (Flash and GIF) and sitemaps. You get many more photo options, including the ability to manipulate your photos with Photoshop plugins. There's a screen capture tool, HTML 5 video support, more import and export options, more widgets, themes and content in general. And all this can now be presented in a site which automatically choose a layout based on the screen size of the viewer (desktop, tablet or phone, perhaps).

Verdict:

Xara Web Designer 10 is a good WYSIWYG web builder, easy to use and capable of producing quality results. If you need to produce anything more than a simple personal site we'd recommend the Premium edition, though - it's more expensive, but the extra power is worth the cost.

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.
