Comodo Dragon 55
A cut down version of Google Chrome with some security extras

Comodo Dragon is a free browser based on Google Chrome, with some additional enhancements to increase security and protect your privacy.

If you visit a secure site that has a domain-only certificate, for instance, then most browsers will accept it without question. Comodo Dragon, however, will point out that this may not be reliable. Domain-only certificates are available to anyone, at low cost and with no verification, so shouldn't be regarded as conclusive proof of identity.

Comodo Dragon is equally cautious with your personal information. The company point out: "Other Chromium Project-based browsers refer software errors to remote servers. When it finds software errors, Comodo Dragon responds with error messages found on the PC browser, keeping information about the user's Internet travels private."

You also get a shiny new set of browser icons, which give Comodo Dragon an appealing look. And the browser's memory footprint is a little reduced, because Comodo doesn't include some features that are standard in the current version of Chrome, like bookmark sync and extensions support.

What's new in 55 (see changelog for more info)?

-   Added support for extra Audio/Video codecs e.g. AAC,MP3/H.264 (https://html5test.com/);
-   Improved HTTPS details over Chromium;
-   Improved EV certificate notification;
-   Improvements to MediaDownloader;
-   Addition of the Widevines DRM Plug-in which means support for such sites are Amazon Video and Netflix.

Verdict:

A good looking Chrome variant, which may be worth a try if you like the browser and don't mind the lack of support for extensions

Comodo Dragon supports Extensions

I don't understand the error in saying that Dragon won't support extensions because i use it with Ghostery, WOT & AdBlockPlus and they all work fine! Be so kind as to remove that error from your review please. Thanks.

I use this because a, you can set dns through Comodo servers, & b, for banking and internet transactions. Give it a go for those uses only. The updates, not a frequently updated as Chrome, are not generally so huge as Chrome. Does not have aero glass though, if your into all that crap. Don't download some stupid glass app leave the theme on default. Safer.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.7

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.
