Comodo IceDragon is a secure, Mozilla based web browser

There is certainly plenty of choice in the web browser market these days – some browsers pride themselves on speed, some on extendibility, some on the level of customization that is available. Security is something that all web browsers will claim to offers, but Comodo is a company that produces a range of security software including tailored web browsers designed specifically with security in mind.

You may well have heard of Comodo Dragon which is a secure web browser based on a Chromium core; IceDragon is very much the same idea, but at the core is Mozilla. This is the first release of IceDragon so things are very much in the early stages and are not yet as developed as in Dragon. This is a great choice if you like the idea of a more secure browser and have become used to the way that Firefox works.

Being based on a Mozilla core means that you do not need to make the switch to Chrome, and just as with Comodo Dragon, the security features of IceDragon are multi-layered. You can use secure DNS settings to ensure that known malicious sites are automatically blocked, and this also has the added bonus of helping to improve page loading times.

Built in to the web browser is the Site Inspector which can be used to check the validity of any site you visit. While this is something that could easily be achieved in a different we browser with another extension, it’s a nice inclusion nonetheless. Another built-in extension, with far less of a security focus, makes it possible to share the current pages with your social networking contacts.

Verdict:

A great addition to the Comodo software range, this is a instantly accessible secure browser

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
