Superheroes, tycoons and astronauts

The big news of the week for us at Softonic surely is the launch of Softonic France. The site offers downloads for the French speaking public with the same editorial independence and critical analysis as you’ve come to expect from Softonic.

Not a week goes by without another extravagance from Google. This time the Mountain View company has launched the Lunar X Prize, a race to land a privately funded craft on Earth’s satellite. Our Neil Armstrong of the downloads, Tony, took the opportunity to reveal updated images in Google Moon.

From Moon light to strobe lights, James reviewed all the best dance applications, from entertaining tutorials to dancing competitions where you’ll need the best moves to become king (or queen) of the dance floor. If instead you’re looking to make it big on the markets, why not try your hand at a tycoon simulation game? There’s more than one way to become rich, whether by selling lemonade, building malls or opening up a safari park in Africa.

We also focused quite a lot on tips this week, with posts on how to get more from Firefox and how to block unwanted callers. XP users will also be glad to find 5 alternative themes to give a face lift to their OS. If you want to inject more power into Outlook, take a look at the best add-ons for your PC’s default mail client.

After adding super-powers to your email client, why not check out all the best superhero downloads, as we round up all the Marvel and DC comic book-related goodies for the PC.

Enjoy the weekend!
