Browser Chooser
Choose your default browser for each situation

Browser Chooser is an open source tool which gives much more control over your choice of default browser.

The program seems very simple. Launch it, an attractive toolbar appears with icons for every browser you've installed, and all you have to do is click one of those browsers to run it.

This gets more interesting when you set up the program as your default browser. Click a link in a document and Browser Chooser 2 appears, allowing you to choose a different browser for every situation.

That's an extra click, of course, but Browser Chooser offers an "Auto URL" feature which enables specific sites to be opened in different browsers. You could automatically open your company site in IE, YouTube in Chrome, everything else in Firefox-- it's entirely up to you.

Despite the name, it's not just about browsers and web pages. You're able to expand the program with support for other applications and protocols, for example to take more control over how your multimedia files are handled.

This is all very configurable, too, but Browser Chooser isn't intrusive. It doesn't make lots of Registry changes and leave you with no way to change them back. We gave it control by using the standard Windows "Default Programs" dialog to make it our default browser, and we could remove it again at any time by setting our preferred browser to something else.

Verdict:

A smart, stylish and very configurable way to get more flexibility over your installed browsers.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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.
