I think there might be some issues with v0.9.13 (WinXP). Since upgrading, the program window vanishes from desktop and taskbar, and can't be reinvoked other than by running the program again. Task manager shows its still running tho. I've gone back to 9.11 which works fine.

Portable apps is hosting an outdated copy, v0.9.35.

Second thought ! Hum maybe third thought!
I am not really comfortable with Google Chrome that possibly is spying on its users, but I am not comfortable either with the "Unchrome" utility as well:
- The size of unchrome (614K) is impressive for a simple utility that replaces a string with zeros
- I loaded unchrome in a disassembler (Ida Pro, free version): impressive again: it seems to do more than it says on the face of it!
- It is true that unchrome comes clean at, but that is not enough ...
My conclusion: if you do not use Chrome, you don't need unchrome either!

@juvera - Use Chromium Portable instead -

@Special: Seems so. and makes for some interesting reading.

Just to add to my above comment, it also mentions the situation on the front page, under the 'Why' heading.

Midas on 2014-07-09 12:49

Cool! As a layman, one of the things that has always blocked my approach of AHK was its muddled state of development/support...

It isn't 'slim' at all, compared to Firefox (51MB), Chrome (84MB), Opera (93MB).
Even Iron (140MB) is smaller.

freakazoid on 2014-09-10 22:28

Slim is their brand. They previously made SlimBrowser and SlimBoat.

Most Chromium browsers use more than 100MB, so it's understandable. But I agree, not "slim" at all! :)

bzl333 on 2014-09-13 03:31

yeah, i recently tried the Slimboat browser and it was slower than #@#$# so when i saw another program labeled "slim" and weighing in at 155 MB i had to laugh. Opera 12.16 is only ~27 MB when you strip out all the extra languages.
