RedMorph for Firefox
Ad and tracker blocking, and more

RedMorph for Firefox is a free ad blocker and content filter.

Install the extension and it seems to work much like any other ad blocker. No setup is required, you just browse as usual and the RedMorph icon displays the number of ads/ trackers/ etc it's blocked.

There's one small extra in the shape of a tiny RedMorph icon bottom-right of the page. If a page isn't working, hover your mouse cursor over this and you're able to choose an alternative protection level for the current site only.

By default RedMorph blocks all trackers and third-party content, but dropping down to Standard or Basic Protection allows more content and may get your page running again, or you're able to turn off RedMorph entirely. Whatever setting you choose will be applied whenever you revisit the current site, but your default settings will still work everywhere else.

RedMorph includes SpyderWeb, a graphical visualisation of the various domains your current site is trying to access. These might be subdomains of its own, maybe a CDN, but you might also find ad sites, trackers and more. This doesn't have any great practical value, but it's sometimes interesting to see how much a page is trying to do behind the scenes, and all this extra activity might also explain site performance issues.

RedMorph also has simple website blacklists and whitelists. You're able to prevent access to specific sites, or allow access to specific websites only.

A "Word Filter" enables checking page content for specific words. If any are found these can be masked (replaced with **), or you can have RedMorph block the site entirely.

Paying to upgrade also gets you an anonymous proxy and VPN service.

Verdict:

RedMorph is a capable ad and tracker-blocker which is also available as a mobile app, and is apparently "coming soon" on the desktop.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

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 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
