Session Manager
Save/ restore your Firefox windows, automatically or on demand

Session Manager is a Firefox add-on which saves and restores the state of some or all of your windows. It can do this on demand, on startup, at regular intervals and even after crashes.

Getting started is as easy as clicking Save > Save Session. Open tabs, closed tabs, windows, form data, session cookies and more can all be saved. When you next launch Firefox, choose your previous session from the Save menu and everything will immediately be restored.

There's support for "auto-save sessions", which are automatically updated when you close Firefox, the browser crashes, or every x minutes. Create an auto-save session called "Job hunt", say, go browse the job sites, and that session will always contain the tabs you were viewing last time.

Session Manager also has an option to save only the current window, useful if you don't need to save every single tab you have open at the moment.

You can have Session Manager step in when Firefox starts, and prompt you for a session to use, or just load the same session every time.

A stack of management tools can rename sessions, group or search them, maybe encrypt them for greater security.

And a comprehensive "Options" dialog helps you tweak the fine details, from the default format of session names to keyboard shortcuts for all the main Session Manager features.

Verdict:

An excellent add-on, easy for beginners to start saving sessions right away, but with the configurability to make it work however you like.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
