Personal Blocklist for Chrome
Clean up your Google search results with Personal Blocklist

The internet is now such a vast resource, and there is now such a wealth of both good and bad information available online, that it can be difficult to track down what you are looking for. Personal Blocklist is an extension for the Google Chrome web browser that makes it possible to hone your search results by blocking results from sites that you are not interested in.

The extension integrates tightly with Chrome, providing you with extra options next to search results. From here you can opt to block search listings from particular domains if you find that they are of little use. This means that over time it is possible to cut out low quality web sites and ensure that your results are more relevant.

Once you have indicated you want to block results from a particular site, it will never show up in search results again, although you do have the option of editing your blocked list in case you make a mistake or change your mind about a domain.

The information gathered by Google as users indicate the sites they find most useful will be used to further fine-tune search results for the benefit of everyone. In the meantime, the extension provides a quick and easy way to clear the clutter from your Google searches and enable you to focus on the most useful resources.

Bug fix in version 2.6:
- fixed an issue with the extension not being triggered for some search urls

Verdict:

A wonderful idea to help clean up the internet that is already useful, but can only improve as more people start to use it.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.91

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.

What's New in Version 2.18.91

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
