Bitdefender TrafficLight for Firefox
Protect yourself from phishing sites, malware and more

Bitdefender TrafficLight is a free browser extension which can help to protect you from a range of web threats.

Install TrafficLight on Firefox and its icon appears to the right of the address bar, hopefully displaying a green light to indicate that the current site is entirely safe. If you do need any feedback, clicking the button displays a panel with TrafficLight's verdict on the current page.

You'll see the same icon displayed in your search engine results, Twitter or Facebook feeds, letting you know which links are safe to visit, and which should really be left alone.

The extension also analyses the pages you visit in real time, to protect you from even the very latest threats. Bitdefender says an "Advanced Phishing Filter" will "scan the pages for phishing attempts", while an "Antifraud Filter" "protects against fraudulent websites or targeted scams." We're not entirely sure how these are different, but anyway, there are at least various layers of protection trying to keep you safe online.

TrafficLight worked well for us, but if you do have any problems then it's easy to disable individual features (the icons in your search engine results, say). We noticed that "Facebook and Twitter protection" was turned off by default on our test system, though, so if that's an option you need then check TrafficLight's settings straight after installation.

What's new in v2?

- Added whitelist web pages functionality
- Removed progress during link scanning from search advisor
- Updated extension style and design​

Verdict:

A simple, unobtrusive browser addon which offers reasonable antiphishing protection

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
