Lunascape 6.9.6
IE, Firefox and Chrome in a single browser

Lunascape is the world's most versatile browser, combining the engines from Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer into a single application.

This gives you an immediate compatibility advantage. If a site doesn't seem to display properly when you view it with the IE engine, say, then you can redisplay it with the Firefox engine in a couple of clicks. Or, if you're at a JavaScript-heavy site, then choose Chrome and benefit from its extra performance.

Lunascape works with most Firefox addons and IE plugins, too. A simple wizard will import your existing favourites and add-ons, then you can install more as you like.

The program isn't just about IE, Firefox and Chrome, though - it has many interesting features of its own. Lunascape comes with many bookmarklets, supports scripts for more advanced automation tasks, includes mouse gestures, a pop-up blocker and built-in RSS reader, allows you to set the user agent string, and is generally very configurable.

And yet, despite all the extras, Lunascape still performs very well. The core of the program requires little in the way of memory or system resources, and the browser remained snappy and responsive throughout all our tests.

What's new in 6.9.6?

- Trident plugin process can be created without writing plugin settings to registry.
- Fixed a bug that the mouse gestures or shortcut keys do not work due to the focus bugs in Trident.
- Fixed a bug that the screen capture do not work in Trident.
- Fixed a bug that the close action triggered by javascript does not work.

Verdict:

Sophisticated browser that offers many benefits and advantages. If you currently have to manage multiple browser installations then Lunascape could save you a great deal of time and hassle

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
