Excellent new web browser: Slimjet
article #860, updated 347 days ago

This is a new one, both Windows and Linux. Based on Chromium, the core of Chrome. Amazingly fast and efficient. Includes recent Adobe Flash, in both 32-bit and 64-bit. This is very probably the fastest and most efficient 32-bit browser with Flash in the world right now.

Free software for editing of digial audio
article #888, updated 667 days ago

First, we have the excellent http://www.audacityteam.org. This is a longstanding project, and has by far the most functionality of any cross-platform (Windows, Linux, Mac, others) project of which I’m aware. It can handle as many tracks as CPU and RAM will permit, and has an excellent array of effects, including the ability to remove tones from a complex whole using its Noise Reduction facility.

Additionally, we have a newcomer, http://www.ocenaudio.com.br. This is a wonderful piece of work, and is much easier when trying to do a simple edit on a single audio file. Its UI is a work of art, both visually and in function.
