Firefox 34 Beta 4
Check out the next version of Firefox before it's released

Firefox Beta is the build for those who like a little bit of jeopardy, but who don’t want to risk everything by trying out Firefox Aurora, the early alpha build of Firefox. Firefox Beta gives you a sneak peek at the next version of Firefox six weeks ahead of its final release, offering a relatively stable build that’s not quite ready for primetime, but still pretty solid.

Whereas Firefox Aurora installs as a completely separate application alongside your existing Firefox installation, Firebox Beta will replace the stable build. Should you subsequently wish to go back to the safer version, you’ll need to manually download the stable version and install it over the top of the beta build.

Confirm which build you have by selecting About Firefox from the Firefox menu or button (it’s inside the Help menu if using the Firefox button).

Firefox 34 is now in the Beta channel. New features include:

- Firefox Hello real-time communication client
Easily switch themes/personas directly in the Customizing mode
Built-in support for H264 (MP4) on Mac OS X Leopard (10.6) and newer through native APIs
Wikipedia search now uses HTTPS for secure searching
Non-intrusive way to set Firefox as default browser
Implementation of HTTP/2 (draft14) and ALPN
Recover from a locked Firefox process in the "Firefox is already running" dialog on Windows

Verdict:

Version 33 is a minor update, with enhanced Tiles, faster Javascript and more.

Firefox 24

Posted by: Edward, 10 August 2013 14:26

I think in your review it need to be specified that Firefox while it may run on a 64 bit system is not by any means a 64 bit browser. One does not get the performance out of a 32 bit browser on a 64 bit system than they would with a 64 bit browser.
Firefox 32 bit browser is actually slower than IE 10 x64.

Thanks Edward. This isn't really a 'review' as such as the Firefox Beta is updated every few weeks, so we can't justify/afford to commission a new review each time, so it's written up to be very generic.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
