Auslogics Browser Care
Simple, fuss-free and a good browser management tool for novices.

Is your browser littered with unwanted toolbars and add-ons? Does it open to the wrong home page? Worried about what data’s sitting on your hard drive revealing your browsing habit to all and sundry? Then Auslogics Browser Care might help.

This free tool – part of Auslogics’ BoostSpeed optimisation suite – has been engineered primarily for novices, and works with Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox across a series of tabs. Everything you need to know about regaining control and tweaking your browser can be found here, with clearly labelled sections revealing how to manage your home page, disable (or delete) toolbars and add-ons, change your browser’s default search engine and tools for clearing up privacy. You can even switch default browser from here.

Nothing on offer here can’t already be done within your browser, but Browser Care simply puts these tools at your fingertips. Better still, it even offers access to Auslogics’ Recovery Source via the Restore button, letting you undo any changes you make should you want to reset and start again.

The program is best for confused novices, and may also be of use cleaning up after browser infections, although if the infection is still present Browser Care may not be able to stop it.

Version 2 adds a system health scanner, that immediately alerts you to thousands of potential problems with your computer. This is little more than an attempt to get you to download and install the main BoostSpeed tool, and if we’re honest is a little disingenuous, particularly given the fact the program is aimed at beginners who may take its findings at face value.

Version 2 also promises to better handle all browser plugins, fix all known bugs and improves the browser cache cleanup feature.

What's new in 2.1.0.0 is a maintenance release. (Changelog)

Verdict:

A decent enough tool that is easy to use and may be of help after removing a browser infection, but we’re not convinced by the motives behind the new system health tool.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
