Sandcat Browser 4.4
A portable Chromium-based browser with some useful security and developer-oriented tools

Sandcat is a portable browser based on the Chromium project. The program is targeted at penetration testers - people who test websites for security holes - but could also be useful for developers, or anyone else who would like a little more low-level control over their browsing.

Sandcat launches just like any browser, so the first thing you'll want to do is enter some starting URL, and watch as it loads. But then you might notice the tabs at the bottom of the window. Clicking "Source" provides instant access to the source code of the current page, while the "Resources" tab displays a list of page objects. And double-clicking any of the latter displays it in a preview pane along with the relevant HTTP headers and responses, so for instance you can view images, JavaScript functions or whatever else you might have.

Exploring the Sandcat browser then reveals more useful functionality. Enable "Live Headers", for instance, and you can watch as your browser tries to access various components of a page. There's an option to view the current page cookies. And a User Agent Changer means you can have Sandcat identify yourself as Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari or Opera, or customise the user agent to whatever you like.

You also get the usual developer tools, which allow you to view every element of your page and watch how it affects performance.

There's a lengthy list of features oriented more to penetration testers. You can load and run custom scripts, for instance, there's a request editor, a fuzzer extension, CGI scanner scripts, encoding and decoding tools, and more.

None of this functionality gets in the way, though. And so if you want to explore everything Sandcat has to offer, you can do so. But if you simply want a browser with easy cookie viewing and user agent configuration (or whatever), then it might also appeal: there's something here for most people.

Sandcat 4 includes enhanced Live Headers, Preview extensions, new consoles, extended LUA libraries, new pen-tester tools and more.

Verdict:

A capable security testing and developer-oriented browser, powerful and easy to use.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

November 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
