IE Tab for Chrome
Use IE to view web pages from within a Chrome tab

There's a lot to like about Google Chrome: a clean and simple design, convenient tab management, and of course its blistering speed. But if you visit a page that can only be displayed with Internet Explorer then none of this will be of any use at all, and you'll be forced to fire up a copy of IE to view the site properly.

There is a more convenient solution, though, and it's called IE Tab. Install this Chrome extension and it adds an IE button to your toolbar. If you visit a site that requires Internet Explorer, then clicking the button will open a new Chrome tab that uses IE's rendering engine to display the page as its designer intended.

This is all very useful in itself, but the authors have one more trick to further speed up the process. Click the Auto URLs button, add the IE-only pages that you view regularly (or use wildcards like* to specify a whole site) and they'll automatically be displayed in IE Tab whenever you visit.

Note that you need to be using Google Chrome to install and use IE Tab.

IE Tab for Chome will only work with the Windows version of Google Chrome, for obvious reasons!


There are some sites that still insist you run IE, unfortunately, but installing IE Tab lets Chrome users access them at a click

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

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.
