WebBrowserPassView v1.85 Updated

billon on 14 Feb 2017
  • 390KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by guinness

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer (4.0 - 11.0), Mozilla Firefox, Opera, SeaMonkey, Chromium, Google Chrome, Safari, Vivaldi and Yandex Web browser. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

Do latest version still have some issues?

smaragdus on 2017-02-04 16:56

@billon
At first look QupZilla version 2.1.0 seems to have improved significantly compared to version 2.0.2, but it uses far more resources compared to version 1.8.9. I did just a brief testing.

freakazoid on 2017-02-11 22:46

I can confirm what smaragdus said about v2.1.0.

Memory usage hovers around 120-140 MB RAM, but that is to be expected when the core engine is now updated to use QtWebEngine, which is powered by Chromium. To compare, I had an older version of Qupzilla v1.8.6 lying around and that used 210 MB RAM.

It's a good alternative to the existing Chromium-powered browsers, but if you're using a Chromium backend, you might as well use Chromium so you can gain access to the wealth of available extensions out there rather than some homebrewed versions that come with QupZilla.

In my opinion, v6 is a step back (looks more "modern", but lacks versatility) compared to v4 (they are being worked on simultaneously).

smaragdus on 2015-05-29 14:46

In fact the latest version of Sleipnir 4 series is 4.4.3.4000.
I agree with joby_toss that Sleipnir 6 is modern beyond usability.

smaragdus on 2016-08-03 20:48

English page is gone, latest versions (as of 2016.08.03)- 4.5.0 & 6.2.0.

SRWare Iron v56.0.2950.0 Updated

billon on 9 Feb 2017
  • 160MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by freakazoid

SRWare Iron is a privacy-enhanced web browser based on Chromium, which is the open-source project behind Google Chrome. By default, Iron sends out less information if compared to Chrome (e.g., creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions), making it potentially more privacy friendly and secure in operation.

Iron supports both official and unofficial themes and some extensions from Chrome. Additionally, to enable blocking ad servers, a 'adblock.ini' is present in the program folder, and Opera's 'urlfilter.ini' can easily be converted to Iron's accepted format by following these instructions (or see comments below).

Note: It is recommended you change the homepage. The Iron default homepage may contain ads or links to fake adware-containing downloads.

Alternative packages:

  • Iron Portable (adds password portabilization, path portabilization, registry cleanup and Java support)
  • X-Iron (idem)

Category:
System Requirements: Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. It creates some registry keys in 'HKCU\Software\Chromium'. Start with --incognito parameter to prevent saving history and cookies after program closes.
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: No
License: BSD
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch IronPortable.exe.

Windows XP/Vista users can download the last working version 49 here.
Similar/alternative apps: Chromium Portable, Google Chrome Portable

version 45: No flash support whatsoever. It also disables all but a two plugins. I understand this is a security issue, however, if you do need Flash, this is not the browser for you. You cannot add Flash support to version 45 of Iron. The former plug-ins do not work, and the latest download which would be supported in Iron contains malware, checked by over 40 different engines and cannot be installed if you have ANY anti-malware engine running. If you don't, be aware you're installing malware. If you have no need for Flash or most other browser plug-ins, feel free, you'll be secure (but missing quite a bit of content.)

Alternatives: Do not update to 45. Install 43, which still supports the (old) flash players (be they however insecure.)
Chrome itself has a built in alternative to Flash in the latest version. Maybe someone will figure out how to "port" this to Iron without doing a bunch of stuff in file explorers etc.
Note: trying to install the latest Adobe Flash for Firefox crashed my XP system, XP is basically no longer supported with version 19. the latest update to Flash 18 works, however.
I have Flash disabled on all but two sites which use the older version just fine.

Just noting that Iron Portable and SRWare Iron Portable, as well as GoogleChromePortable and X-Chromium, create these registry keys:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions

HKU\*\Software\Google
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions

Also note that the HKLM key is hidden in regedit. I can see it being created using Regshot and get to it and delete it with an alternate registry editor. I don't know how the key is protected. (Any info appreciated.)

The only Chromium browser that doesn't create these keys is Chromium Portable (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2169).

They also create the following folders/files:

C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\metadata
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\reports
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad\settings.dat

random17: thanks for the info but, as that addresses multiple programs and not just Iron, posts like that really belong in forums.
