CloneApp Backs Up All Your Windows Program Settings

Windows: Whether you’re migrating to a new computer or doing a clean install, life is easier when you take all your settings and tweaks with you. If you don’t want to do a full backup and restore, CloneApp backs up settings for the most popular Windows programs so you can restore them later.
CloneApp is completely portable, too, so you don’t have to install anything. Just extract the program to its own folder on the desktop and right-click it to launch it as an administrator. From there, check the programs you want to back up, and click Start CloneApp. It’ll back up all the necessary files and registry keys to its folder, which you can then copy to your new computer, launch the program, and click Restore to put all your settings back where they belong.

Open with Firefox Bridges the Gap Between Your Two Favorite Browsers
chrome-vs-firefoc

Chrome: The battle between Chrome and Firefox as our favorite browsers has raged for years with no clear winner. If you’d rather not commit to just one browser, Open with Firefox allows you to quickly jump out of Chrome. You can also get Open in Chrome for Firefox for the reverse process.
The Open with Firefox extension simply allows you to quickly open the tab you’re working on in Firefox. This is useful if you have a tab that’s not compatible for some reason, or if you just want to avoid bogging down Chrome with a resource-heavy site. Open in Chrome performs a similar function, though you can choose to open just one tab in Chrome or all of your currently open tabs. Between these two extensions, it should be much easier to swap between both of your browsers.

Portal, by Pushbullet, Sends Large Files Between Devices Over Wi-Fi

Pushbullet is one of our favorite apps for bridging the gap between your devices. Now, the company is going even further with a new app called Portal that can transfer files directly between your devices over Wi-Fi.
Unlike a tool like Dropbox, Portal doesn’t need to upload your files to a third-party server, so the transfers are quick and direct. While Pushbullet itself is technically capable of transferring small files, the company itself admits this isn’t very reliable. Portal requires that both devices in the exchange be on the same Wi-Fi network, but the trade off is that Pushbullet claims you can send files over 1GB in size reliably.
