You can understand the argument for ad-free web browsing. At the very least, browsing any website without adverts will be speedy. Head to any local news site and you often have to wait for the site to render correctly due to all the surrounding (and popup) ads.

The other claim behind removing ads is that it should save battery life as there's less processing power required to render a web page and the entire pr

However, the argument against advert blocking is a very important argument. Why? As end users simply forget that the cost of producing, hosting and maintaining a website isn't a free process and website owners aren't paid by your broadband provider. And there are few other ways for a website to make money as people don't want to pay for a subscription. Dilemma.

Resting that argument for a moment, the guys at Adblock have developed an entire smartphone web browser which is designed to eradicate ads and offer a "ghost mode" which will enable you to browse the internet without leaving any trace whatsoever.

Adblock Browser goes further by putting your browsing history at the forefront, so you can quickly remove and hide the sites you've visited.

But, will anyone use this? We're not sure. Do you really need yet another separate browser for your iOS device? Do people need to avoid ads so badly they need to ditch Safari or Chrome to use a separate browser? Perhaps if you really have something to hide, perhaps. But for the average user, probably not.

Verdict:

Goes further than your average browser to remove ads and protect your online identity, but the average user won't choose this browser over Safari or Chrome.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
