Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Instant Preview
View web sites before you visit them with Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Instant Preview

Although bookmarks make it easy to jump to the web sites you use on a regular basis, a large proportion of time online is spent searching for information. Whether you want to find out the latest news or see what the weather is going to be like for the week ahead, performing a search is often the best way to find what you are looking for rather than clicking link after link on numerous web sites.

Instant Preview is an addon for Firefox that can help to speed up the search process by automatically starting to download pages suggested by the Awesome Bar so that they will load far more quickly when they are clicked. To save time by ensuring that you don’t visit irrelevant web sites, a preview of pages is also available by either hovering the mouse or using the cursor keys to select a suggestion.

While the preview feature is a useful way of avoiding sites that will not be of put to the opposite use. If you are looking up the weather or details of a particular news story, the preview may provide you will all of the information you need, meaning that there is no need to visit the site at all.

All it takes to get rid of the page preview is a tap of the Esc key, but if you decide you would like to navigate the site further, you are free to do so. Instant Preview is a great addon for anyone who finds that they need to quickly look something up, but don’t want to fully break away from what they are doing - a quick press of Esc and you can be back to your original web site.

Verdict:

Providing you have a speedy internet connection, this addon is a great way to get information fast and avoid useless web sites.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20

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 2.19.20 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
