SiteLauncher for Firefox
SiteLauncher provides one-click access to a wide range of common sites and you can add your own.

These days, your web browser is pretty much the main gateway to being productive on your PC, which means if there’s any way you can get it to work faster – such as accessing your favourite sites more quickly – then it’s well worth investigating.

The bookmarks toolbar in Chrome or Firefox is one way to keep your most-used sites at your fingertips as they’re available with a single click. SiteLauncher, however, goes one step further and gives you access to lightning fast keyboard shortcuts.

This browser add-on provides a pop-up window that can be used just like the bookmarks bar. When you click one of the sites within you get direct access. It’s already populated with the most useful sites like Google Mail, BBC News, YouTube and Wikipedia but you can also add your own favourites.

Press [Ctrl] + [Spacebar] to open SiteLauncher or use [Ctrl] + [Alt] if you’re using a Mac. Then, to add the currently loaded page as a shortcut either press [Tab] and choose Shortcut current page (Firefox), or click the plus sign in the pop-up window that appears in Chrome.

This would be cool enough in itself, but you can also assign keyboard shortcuts to sites for even faster access. Just press [Ctrl] + [Spacebar] to open the launcher followed by the key shown next to the favicon of the site you want.

Many shortcuts are already assigned: [g] gets you to Google and [f] to Facebook, for example, but you can change the default keys or set up ones for new sites. Choose More Options > Manage Shortcuts and select the one you want to change. Choose Edit and then enter the shortcut key you want to use and click Revise. Nice and simple.

Verdict:

SiteLauncher provides a number of ways to quickly access the most useful web pages and it includes a lot of scope for customisation, too.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.7

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.
