  • Google Chrome quickest, smartest browser

    Google Chrome is Google's web browser. With it, you can open web applications and games with no hassle and, above all, quickly. It's the main alternative to Firefox and Internet Explorer.

    More than a browser

    Chrome is a young, fast browser that can browse any web page. It supports all major technologies and standards such as HTML5 and Flash.

    With Google Chrome, as well as loading web pages, you can run complex web applications, like Angry Birds and Chrome Remote Desktop, completely free.

    In short, Chrome is basically designed to be an operating system within an operating system, the window through which you run all your applications. In fact, that's the essence of Chrome OS.

    Private, synchronized browsing

    When connecting to a Google account, Chrome is able to synchronize browsing data and tabs between multiple PCs and devices. It's a very convenient option if you use Chrome for Android or iOS.

    Incognito mode, a browsing mode which doesn't save any file on the hard disk is ideal for privacy: no stored cookies and no images to leave traces.

    Totally personalized experience

    A unique feature of Chrome is its support for multiple users, which allows shared use of Chrome on a single computer - essential if you have visitors who want to go online or if you only have one PC.

    Finally, Google Chrome can be customized and improved through extensions and themes. There are thousands to satisfy all tastes and needs. You can even create them yourself.

    Revolutionary usability

    Google Chrome is a program that's very easy to use. Its single bar, Omnibox, lets you enter web addresses and search Google. Going on what you have written, Google Chrome then suggests results from your browsing history, favorite web sites, or applications you already have installed.

    Another key point that highlights Chrome's usability is the quick start page, where you can access the sites you visit the most, your favorite web applications, or recently closed tabs (on your PC or on other devices you have synced).

    Finally, the Google Chrome options panel is a single page where you can instantly find the settings you want to change. It's much more pleasant to use than the typical window full of tabs that you'll see in Firefox and Internet Explorer.

    Clearing browsing data is easy. Go to the Google Chrome Tools menu and in Optionsopen the Advanced panel. There, click the Clear Browsing Databutton, and choose the time period and the type of data you want to delete.

    When it comes to the Incognito mode, it's activated from the Tools menu or by pressing Control+Shift+N. You'll see how the window changes its appearance subtly to show that you're now browsing without saving data to your PC.

    Exceptional performance and compatibility

    From a system perspective, with its V8 engine Google Chrome is at the top of the competition when it comes to comparative speed. This performance improves with each version.

    Compatible with all web standards such as HTML5 and Flash, Chrome loads PDF files with its own viewer. You don't need to worry about installing plugins or changing any options: Chrome does it all.

    Special care on safety issues

    When browsing, security is of utmost importance; Google Chrome filters pages that have viruses so you don't access them and it also loads each tab separately, so if a page becomes unstable, it doesn't shut down the browser.

    Today, it's the best on the market

    More and more people are using Google Chrome as their primary browser. Its attractive design, superior speed and customization options make it a strong candidate to take the lead in the browser market.

    The best alternatives? Only Opera and Firefox can hope to compete.

  • Sony Vegas 15-Professional video and audio editor

    Sony Vegas Pro is a video editing suite aimed at professionals needing to produce high-quality HD videos. This Professional version includes some features which are missing from other versions such as support for gigapixel images, multilayer Adobe Photoshop files and a wider support of capture cards.

    Covers all professional needs

    Sony Vegas Pro is comparable to other industry standard video editing packages such as Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro but follows Sony's own workflow logic which is a little different to both Premiere and Final Cut.

    You may, therefore, struggle at first if you've only tried the latter, though Sony Vegas Pro is well documented with a very detailed manual. Sony Vegas Pro offers support for pretty much everything a professional needs including the ability to import media from multiple devices (including HD video), use more than 300 filters and special effects, specific tools to work with text layers and subtitles and easily optimize image quality.

    But as you might expect from Sony, a lot of attention is also paid to how videos sound and the quality of the video soundtrack in general. There's also a huge number of sound effects to choose from, support for VST plug-ins and Sony Vegas generally gives you a very high degree of control over sound settings.

    Standard timeline interface

    The Sony Vegas Video interface follows a standard video editing interface. There are several windows to preview your media and current work, as well as a timeline to organize the various audio and video tracks. The best thing about the Sony Vegas Video interface is that it's totally customizable: you can freely open, close and arrange the program's diverse modules to best suit your needs.

    This use of interchangeable modules may be confusing at first for those used to Premiere and Final Cut but it does offer a high degree of control of your editing interface. There are also other nuances that Premiere or Final Cut users will have to adapt to - some tools are found under different menus for example and it definitely takes some time to get accustomed to the Sony Vegas Pro interface.

    A highly accomplished video editor

    Sony Vegas Pro is an industry standard video editor and if you're looking for an alternative to packages such as Final Cut and Premiere, or need something more powerful when it comes to audio editing, Sony Vegas Pro is definitely worth a try. If you are looking for a free alternative, we also recommend you to download VideoPad Video Editor.

    Our verdict: the best of download managers

    Internet Download Manager is an excellent tool. Even though you have to pay for it, many users prefer it over its main competitors like Free Download Manager or Flashget, and they're not without good reason.
