Chrome Delight
Gorgeous time lapse video for your New Tab page

Chrome Delight is a free "new tab page" Chrome extension with a difference: instead of static photo wallpaper, it gives you gorgeous time-lapse videos.

We found a spinning night sky view, for instance. Clouds rushing over a spectacular landscape. A sunrise. A view from a mountainside, as cloud rushes like water across the valley below. Spectacular desert images with the evening sky reflected in a river.

Every scene runs for around ten seconds before repeating. Resource use didn't seem too bad - the videos are about 3 to 4MB in size, not a big deal in Chrome terms - and it barely added a fraction of a percentage point CPU usage to our system.

Right-clicking the screen displays options to disable looping, save the video locally or copy the video URL to the clipboard.

Chrome Delight isn't just about the visuals. There are also links to open your most visited sites, your bookmarks or apps, and there's a bonus weather tool which displays the current conditions in your chosen cities.

Verdict:

Chrome Delight doesn't have the variety you'll get with regular wallpaper extensions, and the other features on the page are very basic, too-- mostly just simple links. But there are some great scenes, and if you like the time-lapse idea it should keep you entertained for a while.

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.
