MX Player is a free video player app which can open many types of video files. I can open MP4, divx, avi, mkv, and many other different types of video files with MX Player. It also supports subtitles. Video playback in MX Player is pretty smooth with no stuttering or slow frame rate problems when I use MX Player on my Asus Google Nexus 2012 tablet. MX Player opens pretty quickly after tapping on its shortcut icon on my tablets home screen.
MX Player is great for watching video offline without a wifi or data connection, or worrying about going over your data cap, and paying overage fees because MX Player can work offline without needing to access the internet to stream video like YouTube. [click to continue…]
SPlayer 3.7 is a free, fast, lightweight, and easy to use video player program for Windows. It works well at opening 1080P HD MP4 and MKV video files in Windows 8.1 in my experience. It can also play all video formats which I use like MP4, MKV, AVI, etc. There is also a full screen mode which plays files in full screen mode. SPlayer also supports many different types of video files. It can even play audio files, DVDs, and Music CDs. The video playback is very smooth with no slow down problems or stuttering, and the sound quality is good when playing back video or music.
Splayer also does not use much RAM, or CPU resources, so I could even use it on older Windows XP computers without much slowdown. It starts up pretty quickly when I open it by clicking the Splayer shortcut on my desktop, or clicking on a video file on my computer. There is even a high performance mode in Splayer for older and slower computers. The low computer resource usage of Splayer should help you save a little bit of battery life, or electricity while watching video or listening to music, and multi-tasking should be faster as well.
SPlayer is also very stable, and never crashes when I use it to play video on my computer.

Light Firefox is a fast, and light Firefox based web browser which can run faster on slower computers. Light runs faster because a lot of the un-needed features for Firefox are removed from Light. I use Light Firefox on my older computer with 1GB of RAM, and a dual-core CPU running Windows 8.1. Scrolling up and down websites, loading websites, switching tabs, minimizing, and maximizing light windows, and opening and closing Light web browser is a lot faster with Light web browser in my experience. I notice that Light Firefox seems to crash less, and I rarely get those Not Responding errors which I get in the regular version of Firefox. Light Firefox also uses less RAM, and CPU resources in my experience, so it runs faster than other web browsers.
Light Firefox is now my main web browser which I use because it runs the fastest, and also supports useful Firefox add-ons like Videodownload helper, Firebug, NoScript and FireFTP which other alternative web browsers do not support. Light also uses the latest version of Firefox 31 compared to other non-official Firefox based web browsers which use older versions of Firefox like 24.6.2 instead of Firefox 31.
