OneTab for Chrome
Manage all your tabs from one window, reducing memory usage in the process.

If you’ve ever tried running Chrome on a low-memory system – and by low-memory we mean anything under 4GB – then you’ll have probably noticed how it’s not wise to have too many tabs open at once. That’s because each tab effectively runs as its own process, consuming hundreds of megabytes at once.

Now the obvious solution to this problem is to simply minimise the number of tabs you have open, but that might not be practical for all kinds of reasons. This is where OneTab comes in, offering you a quick and convenient way to manage all those tabs from a single window, reducing your memory usage by up to 95 per cent and helping to speed up your PC or Mac in the process.

It’s incredibly simple to use: start browsing and as you open more and more tabs, just click the One Tab button on your taskbar and the tabs are rolled into one single tab, reducing your memory consumption in the process. Users have also reported CPU consumption is cut when tabs containing running scripts are minimised too – a win-win for all concerned.

You can then restore individual tabs by clicking them in the list, or opt to restore or delete all the tabs from One Tab’s history. Unless you opt to delete the tabs completely, they’ll always remain in the list – even after shutting down and restarting Chrome. You can even opt to share your tab collection as a web page for others to access, or export the URLs for importing on to another computer.

The concept is breathtakingly simple, the execution brilliant and it’s frankly an essential add-on for any Chrome user, particularly if you’re running an older, under-powered Mac or PC. A Firefox version is also in development.

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.
