Modify Headers for Firefox
Control the information sent out by Firefox with Modify Headers

When you interact with web sites, information is sent back and forth to and from your computer. This can include details about the software you are using, the browser you have installed, the web sites you visit and much more. As this all happens in the background, you are usually unaware of just what information is being shared, but Modify Headers is a free addon for Firefox that you can use to take back control.

The addon enables you to limit the use of cookies as well as masking which browser you are using – of even make it appear as though you are using a different web browser. For web developers Modify Headers provides you with the opportunity to see how you web site will respond to visitor using different web browsers with different settings in place.

The plugin can be easily enabled and disabled from the status bar of Firefox so you can leave it disabled most of the time and activate it whenever you need it. Alternatively, if you are involved in web development, you may find that it makes more sense to leave Modify Headers enabled most of the time and just disable it when you want to browse the web normally.

This is certainly not a tool that everyone will want to be using on a daily basis, but it does still have its place. For site debugging, particularly mobile development of site, it is incredibly useful and it is an unobtrusive utility that can be called into action whenever it is needed.

Verdict:

A handy addon for web developers and anyone who wants to stay in control about the information they share about their web usage.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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.
