Self-Destructing Cookies for Firefox 0.4.6
Delete a site's cookies when you close its tab

Self-Destructing Cookies is an easy-to-use cookie manager for Firefox.

Install the add-on and it takes immediate effect. Tracking cookies are removed immediately, based on their behaviour (no bulky blacklist required). And a site's regular cookies - and its LocalStorage data - are automatically deleted just as soon as you close its tab.

The add-on also deletes cookies after they've been unused for a specified period of time (10 seconds by default), so you have some protection even if you leave a tab open.

Too drastic? You can whitelist a site, which means Self-Destructing Cookies will leave it alone. Or you can have a site's cookies preserved until you close Firefox, so they'll be available for the current session only.

Useful settings include an option to clear your browser cache when the system has been idle for a specified number of minutes (this is disabled by default).

Self-Destructing Cookies also has an optional Undelete feature to restore anything it's removed. This can help if you find the add-on has broken a site, but has to be used with care, as it might allow other users of your system to log back into sites where you've logged out. (Again, this is disabled by default.)

Version 0.4.7:
    - Australis-native GUI on recent desktops builds
    - work around a bug in Firefox 36 that would cause cookies to be removed prematurely

Verdict:

A comprehensive cookie manager, highly configurable but also very easy to use.

Unreal Engine 4.8

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."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
