Greasemonkey 2.3
Customise how websites look and behave

Greasemonkey is a Firefox add-on which uses small chunks of JavaScript to customise how a web page works.

You don't have to know anything about JavaScript to use Greasemonkey, as there are plenty of free scripts available. And it's surprising just what they can do. As we write, one repository (Greasy Fork) has scripts to avoid ads, extend YouTube, bulk-delete items from your Facebook timeline, download videos, translate text, check Rapidshare links, download Instagram and Facebook albums, and automate, fix and enhance just about every aspect of Kings of Camelot (and that's just on the first three pages).

These scripts can be almost as powerful as add-ons, and they're usually just as easy to install. Find something you like at Greasy Fork, click the link to read more, and if you like the sound of it, click "Install this script". A warning dialog explains what you're about to do, so there's no risk of silent installations. There's an option to view the script source, but otherwise you can install it with a click. Installed scripts can then be accessed via an extra tab on the Addons page, where you'll find buttons to set options, disable or remove them.

Greasemonkey also provides simple tools to create and manage your own scripts (click the Greasemonkey button on the address bar and choose "New User Script"). Even experts may find it a challenge to get everything working, but fortunately Greasemonkey has a comprehensive wiki to offer help and advice.

Version 2.3 changes:
    - Added @noframes metadata imperative
    - Bug fixes
 

Verdict:

Greasemonkey extends Firefox by providing easy access to a huge range of scripts. Beginners can use it without worrying about the fine details, but if you're a JavaScript expert then it also gives you plenty of site-customising power.

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.
