Firefox 54 Beta 1
Check out the next version of Firefox before it's released

Firefox Beta is the build for those who like a little bit of jeopardy, but who don’t want to risk everything by trying out Firefox Aurora, the early alpha build of Firefox. Firefox Beta gives you a sneak peek at the next version of Firefox six weeks ahead of its final release, offering a relatively stable build that’s not quite ready for primetime, but still pretty solid.

Whereas Firefox Aurora installs as a completely separate application alongside your existing Firefox installation, Firebox Beta will replace the stable build. Should you subsequently wish to go back to the safer version, you’ll need to manually download the stable version and install it over the top of the beta build.

Confirm which build you have by selecting About Firefox from the Firefox menu or button (it’s inside the Help menu if using the Firefox button).

Firefox 54 is now in the Beta channel. New features include:

- Clearer and more detailed information for download items in the download panel
- Added Burmese (my) locale
- Bookmarks created on mobile devices are now shown in "Mobile Bookmarks” folder in the drop down list from the toolbar and Bookmarks option in the menu bar in Desktop Firefox

Verdict:

Version 51 includes enhanced protection against malware downloads and more.

Firefox 24

Posted by: Edward, 10 August 2013 14:26

I think in your review it need to be specified that Firefox while it may run on a 64 bit system is not by any means a 64 bit browser. One does not get the performance out of a 32 bit browser on a 64 bit system than they would with a 64 bit browser.
Firefox 32 bit browser is actually slower than IE 10 x64.

Thanks Edward. This isn't really a 'review' as such as the Firefox Beta is updated every few weeks, so we can't justify/afford to commission a new review each time, so it's written up to be very generic.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

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."

4.15.1 brings:
