Firefox 37 Beta 7
Check out the next version of Firefox before it's released

Firefox Beta is the build for those who like a little bit of jeopardy, but who don’t want to risk everything by trying out Firefox Aurora, the early alpha build of Firefox. Firefox Beta gives you a sneak peek at the next version of Firefox six weeks ahead of its final release, offering a relatively stable build that’s not quite ready for primetime, but still pretty solid.

Whereas Firefox Aurora installs as a completely separate application alongside your existing Firefox installation, Firebox Beta will replace the stable build. Should you subsequently wish to go back to the safer version, you’ll need to manually download the stable version and install it over the top of the beta build.

Confirm which build you have by selecting About Firefox from the Firefox menu or button (it’s inside the Help menu if using the Firefox button).

Firefox 37 is now in the Beta channel. New features include:

- NEW. Heartbeat user rating system - your feedback about Firefox
- NEW. Bing search now uses HTTPS for secure searching 
- NEW. New preferences implementation enabled for the first half of the beta cycle
- NEW. Hello: Improved notification about user availability
- NEW. Added support for OneCRL for centralized certificate revocation
- NEW. Removed support for DSA in certificates and TLS
 -NEW. Added support for e-mail name constraints in certificates
- NEW. Implemented HTTP/2 AltSvc support for opportunistic (unauthenticated) encryption

Verdict:

Version 37 is a minor update, with no new notable key features, so far.

Firefox 24

I think in your review it need to be specified that Firefox while it may run on a 64 bit system is not by any means a 64 bit browser. One does not get the performance out of a 32 bit browser on a 64 bit system than they would with a 64 bit browser.
Firefox 32 bit browser is actually slower than IE 10 x64.

Thanks Edward. This isn't really a 'review' as such as the Firefox Beta is updated every few weeks, so we can't justify/afford to commission a new review each time, so it's written up to be very generic.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
