Here is this weeks latest Beta software downloads for Windows. This week, Firefox 18 hit Beta 6, while VirtualDub and SeaMonkey saw a new beta build. Every week we will be posting the latest Beta software for Microsoft's Windows operating system, for those who enjoy testing/trying out new software before it completes development.
Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source Web browser descended from the Mozilla Application Suite and managed by Mozilla Corporation. Firefox is also the second most widely used internet browser. Firefox uses the Gecko layout engine, which implements most current web standards in addition to several features that are intended to anticipate likely additions to the standards. Firefox 18 features preliminary support for WebRTC, offers a better image quality experience thanks to new HTML scaling algorithm, and performance improvements when it comes to tab switching.
VirtualDub 1.10.3 is out. It contains a number of bug fixes along with a couple of small things on the side. Several of the video filters have had additional fixes, a WAVE64 format bug was fixed, a DirectShow capture crash was fixed, a couple of Unicode text problems have been resolved, high DPI aware mode has been enabled, an option has been added to apply edits only to video and not audio, and support for high-performance screen capture on Windows 8 (DXGI 1.2) has been added.
SeamMonkey is an all-in-one Internet application suite. Web-browser, advanced e-mail and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editing made simple -- all your Internet needs in one application. The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to deliver production-quality releases of code derived from the application formerly known as "Mozilla Application Suite".
