Midori 0.5.10
Midori is a lightweight browser, yet capable of handling all common web site technologies.

Midori is a lightweight WebKit-based browser.

The program's big button interface and straightforward settings mean it's very easy to use. And of course you also get core features like tabs, a configurable search gadget, user styles, cookie management and extensions for the most needed features such as ad blocking, form completion and mouse gestures.

There are plenty of extras, too: spell-checking, RSS/ Atom/ XML feed detection, an ad blocker, kiosk mode, customisable user agent and more.

Sounds great, in theory. In practice, it's not so reliable, at least for the Windows build we tried: the program crashed each and every time we tried to launch it on our first test machine. We had more luck on the second, but that wasn't exactly encouraging.

If you're looking for a WebKit browser which just works, then, opting for Chrome would make more sense. But when you get Midori working it's a likeable tool, easy to use but with some interesting features, and if you're exploring the alternative browser world then we'd give it a try.

Verdict:

Midori can be a good choice for fast web browsing on lower powered hardware.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
