BrowsingHistoryView
View your IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari browsing history from one tiny application

BrowsingHistoryView quickly displays the browsing history of your IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari installations in a single table.

If this isn't convenient then you can restrict your data sources in several ways. You might exclude a particular web browser by clearing a checkbox, for instance; there's an option to display only data from a specific time period, perhaps between two specified dates; and you're able to choose which Windows profile folder you'd like BrowsingHistoryView to check (the current user, All Users, a specified folder, and more).

With this configured the program will display your combined browsing history in a lengthy list, including details such as the page URL, title, visit time, the number of visits, source browser and user profile.

This might easily contain thousands of addresses, but if you're looking for something specific then a Find option will help you search for the domain or link you need.

And as usual with NirSoft tools, the table can be quickly exported to an HTML report if you need it for reference later.

The nature of browser histories means this data isn't as neat as you might like. You don't always get a single entry per visited URL, for instance: there may also be lines mixed in relating to authentication, downloaded files, favicons, ads, scripts and more.

If you'd like to be able to search all your browser histories from one page then this is a simple way to do it, though, and as usual with NirSoft tools, BrowsingHistoryView is portable and very lightweight, requiring less than 350KB of drive space.

Version 2.10 (History):

Added new option: 'Automatically stop the cache task of IE10/IE11/Edge for unlocking the database file.' If this option is turned on - BrowsingHistoryView automatically stops the 'CacheTask' Scheduled task to unlock the database file of IE10/IE11/Edge (WebCacheV01.dat).
When you use the 'Load history from remote computer' option, BrowsingHistoryView will stop the 'CacheTask' Scheduled task on the remote computer, so you'll be able to view the history of IE10/IE11/Edge remotely.

Verdict:

It needs more browser support, perhaps better filtering options, but even now BrowsingHistoryView is a compact and convenient way to examine or search a system's internet history

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

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.

What's New in Version 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
