AdBlock for Google Chrome
Tweak AdBlock’s settings to exclude certain websites from having adverts blocked

There are two schools of thought when it comes to online advertising. The first is that it’s intrusive, wastes precious bandwidth and ought to be stopped or blocked at all costs. Seems logical at first glance, but think about the second school of thought: most of the content provided for free on the internet wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t for advertising – if you don’t want to pay for content, then surely allowing the site in question to display advertising is the least it can expect in return? Ultimately, there’s a question of whether or not you’re effectively stealing content by blocking the very adverts that allow that content to be there in the first place. It’s a moral – and ultimately financial – argument that’s set to run and run.

AdBlock doesn’t really go with the second argument – at least not in its default state: once installed, reload any web page and you’ll see the ads have gone. All you have to do now is choose whether or not to display the icon in your taskbar and whether or not to allow Google text ads to be displayed where they appear.

If some ads continue to appear that you wish to block, or you actually want to support certain websites by allowing them to display advertisements on their pages, you can tweak these settings from inside the program’s extended configuration options, accessible by clicking the spanner icon and choosing Tools > Extensions.

Verdict:

This is an extremely effective ad-blocking tool that will speed up your browsing and block almost all adverts without further tweaking.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

4.15.1 brings:
