QtWeb v3.8.5

billon on 4 Feb 2017
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Sep 2013
  • Suggested by I am Baas

QtWeb is a web browser focused on strong privacy and a clean environment. While running, no traces are left on the host machine while browsing and none are left behind after a browser "reset" in the privacy menu. All toolbars, including navigation bar, can be turned off or docked anywhere, and even moved outside the main browsing window. Includes built-in support for Torrent downloads and ad-blocking functionality can be easily enabled.

Based on Qt framework and Apple's WebKit rendering engine (also used by Apple Safari).

Security note: development of this browser appears to have stalled and the software may be subject to security vulnerabilities.

Not bad but can't work with Java.

I was worried that QtWeb was as dead as K-meleon. It hadn't been updated in more than a year. Thankfully, I was wrong.

QtWeb makes for a great secondary browser or portable browser, or even as a primary browser if you don't like bloatware. It's small and fits on a flash ram of at least 2GB, and contains all modern web technologies except java.

The lack of java isn't a problem for those who don't visit sites laden with that crap. It works with adobe flash, so youtube and other sites work fine.

The only downside to QtWeb is a lack of plugins or extensions. It would be nice to have an adblocker (especially for youtube) or other content blocker.

I adjusted the entry for the fact that Qt is now a publicly traded company, no longer owned by Digia. (Funnily enough, it's traded in Nasdaq Helsinki, of all stock exchanges...)

MP3Gain Portable v1.2.5

webfork on 2 Jun 2015
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by tigger

Note: this program has been forked and updated as wxMP3gain

MP3Gain is an audio normalizer software that uses the Replay Gain algorithm to calculate how loud the file actually sounds. It analyzes MP3 files and changes the volume without re-encoding or modifying quality. Batch operations are available and changes can be reversed.

MP3Gain modifies files by writing metadata (and undo instructions) that includes volume changes, as well as changing the MP3 data.

MP3Gain Portable is packaged in PortableApps.com Format for portable use alone or with the PortableApps.com Platform. Alternatively, X-MP3Gain (v.1.3.4 beta) is also available.

A derivative, newer (3.7) version of this software, still being developed and supported, is available from PortableApps via this link: http://portableapps.com/apps/music_video/wxmp3gain-portable

The previous version has been withdrawn from their database on grounds of non-portability; the download link given leads to the Sourceforge page for this withdrawn (and out-of-date) version.

Universal Extractor v1.6.1

webfork on 8 Jul 2016
  • 11MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 May 2010
  • Suggested by DigeratiPrime

Universal Extractor allows you to extract files from a wide variety of archive files, including ZIP, ARJ, LZH, as well as MSI and EXE files created using various installer packages (such as Nullsoft, Wise, Inno Setup, etc). Useful for testing apps for portability because you can extract files directly from installer packages without having to go through the installation process. Note that the original developer no longer updates the program so some manual updates may be required.

Alternatively, an unofficial version with the latest-and-greatest internals is available (on Lupo's PenSuite site).

Commercial use note: license restrictions are present on included files UHARC02.EXE and UHARC04.EXE, but can be deleted without dramatic impact on the software. See website for more information.

It's a bit OTT calling this an universal extractor, as many EXE files I try to extract with it, leads to error messages that the so-scalled universal extractor can't extract them.

Numanoid on 2014-11-01 14:32

This programme is in fact pretty much useless, there hasn't been one exe I have tried to extract over the last couple of months, where the so-called Universal Extractor has failed me :-(

Still loving this program. It worked well on Vista, and it still works great on my upgrade (yes upgrade) to XP SP3. I just recently used it to disable some unneeded stuff launching with my partition backup program. thanks.

Emka: entry updated. This is one of my favorite system programs so I was very happy to get this back online. Although it doesn't list support for it, I had no trouble using it successfully in Windows 7.
