Easy Access
Launch local programs from the Firefox status bar

Easy Access is a Firefox addon which allows you to launch programs or system commands directly from the Firefox status bar.

Install the addon and you'll see an icon appear on the right side of the status bar. Click this, a drop-down menu gives you some default entries - Notepad, Paint, Calculator, My Computer, Switch Profile - and you can launch any of them with a click.

There's also a "Manage Your Own Easy Access" option which allows you to add further programs of your own.

And you can add any of all of your program icons to the left of the Easy Access icon, ensuring you'll be able to launch any of them with a single click.

As launchers go, Easy Access isn't exactly sophisticated. You can't group your icons, for instance, or reorder them, and they're not particularly configurable, either.

Still, if you always have a Firefox window open then the addon does do exactly what its name suggests, giving you very easy access to whatever tools and applications you need.

Changelog

Verdict:

It has some limitations and interface irritations, but Easy Access does provide a simple way to launch programs directly from Firefox

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20

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 2.19.20 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
