Google Chrome Backup
Back up your Google Chrome profile with ease

Why on earth would you need to back up your Google Chrome user profile? For starters you may not want to use Chrome’s own Sync feature – yes, it’s designed to synchronise your profile across multiple computers, but does all serve as an online backup. However, it requires a Google Account, which may be more than you can stomach. It’s also useful to have a local copy of your backup profile – after all, you can never have too many backups.

Fair enough: but doesn’t your existing backup tool already cover Chrome? Not necessarily – you’ll find many third-party backup tools cover Internet Explorer and Firefox, but Chrome’s recent emergence may ensure the program isn’t yet covered by your backup tool of choice.

This is where the Ronseal-inspired Google Chrome Backup comes into play: as the title suggests, it’s a backup tool. For Google Chrome. Launch the program, click Run Wizard and just follow the instructions to back up (or restore) your user profile. Need additional features? You can password-protect your backup from the Preferences menu (click the spanner icon) plus set a higher compression ratio if hard-drive space is tight. You can also create new profiles and delete existing ones should you need to.

Ignore the prompt about registering for the princely sum of €3.49 for bonus features – this is no longer available, and not really necessary: all the functionality you need is here in the free version.

One final point: the program will tell you a new version of Google Chrome is available, pointing you to the very latest development version. Ignore this – sadly it’ll appear each time you run Google Chrome Backup, but it’s a small price to pay for piece of mind.
 

Verdict:

Perfectly adequate backup and restore tool for Google Chrome users – lacks flexibility (you can’t choose what gets backed up for example), but does the job admirably.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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.
