Chromium is a browser similar to Google Chrome and uses the same code base. Chromium omits some components including Google's brand, auto-update mechanism, RLZ identifier, as well as the bundled Adobe Flash Player and PDF viewer.

Chromium Portable is a custom-built version of the dev channel of the Chromium web browser. It is packaged in the PortableApps.com Format and supports jPortable.

A 64-bit version is optionally available within the extract process.

Alternatively, X-Chromium is also available.

I have no problem downloading the app. Try clearing your browser's cache and cookies.

The current download link (below title) links to a patch (24.0.1284.2.7z) and not the paf.exe

The direct dl link I found is: https://sourceforge.net/projects/crportable/files/ChromiumPortable_56.0.2902.0.paf.exe/download

@joby_toss

Clearing cache / cookies makes no difference. Tried in several browsers, same result. No worries, I`m sure it will fix itself soon.

@Tom - well its FREEEEEEEE so you got more than you paid the evil author of the program. also will be nice if you spend thousands of hours developing a free program and then let others criticize you with BIG BOLD ANGRY CAPITALS!!!!

filobus on 2015-05-28 07:38

@bzl333 weel, you have to bear criticism if you want to improve! (unkind criticism is another matter)
Calibre is "huge" (maybe it have to be like that, it's not a criticism, it's just a pity!), and I too don't like at all its way to make its own library (I have to put there only books I want to convert, and remove them, not a user friendly behaviour). It's a little too complicated, but it does its job well!
For me it's a must-have but also a could-be-better!! :-)

Per CALIBRE Version: 2.33.0 beyond version 1.48x CALIBRE no longer supports XP.

DocFetcher v1.1.19 Updated

billon on 11 Jan 2017
  • 51MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Jan 2017
  • Suggested by vixay

DocFetcher indexes your computer, making the contents of a wide variety of files instantly searchable. Selecting a search result shows a preview of the file with text highlighted and without formatting. You can filter results by location, file type, minimum and/or maximum filesize, and more. The program can index Microsoft Office, OpenOffice/LibreOffice, PDF, RTF, EPUB, HTML, and more formats from drives, external volumes, archive files, and Outlook .PST files.

Cross-platform and functional on OS X and Linux.

Note: DocFetcher requires that you add folders/drives that you want to view before searching. See the "Basic Usage" section of the homepage for a few intro steps. When adding to the search scope, make sure to check "Store relative paths if possible"

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Java Runtime Environment 1.7 or higher, see forum for use with Java Portable
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Eclipse Public License
How to extract: Download the "portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch DocFetcher.exe.

If you see a memory error (very rare): either reduce the size/number of files indexed, or do the following (64-bit users only):

  1. In a text editor, edit misc\DocFetcher.bat so that the last line reads -Xmx4096m
  2. Move this file to the main folder
  3. Save and launch DocFetcher.bat, ignoring DocFetcher.exe from now on
Similar/alternative apps: SearchMyFiles
What's new? Features:
  • Polish GUI translation.
  • DocFetcher now ships with Windows launchers with up to 8 GB of memory. Note that more than 1 GB requires a 64-bit Java runtime.
  • Advanced settings:
    • Option for disabling the text preview. This is useful for searching the contents of very large text files;
    • New entry AllowIndexRenaming for hiding the “Rename Index” context menu entry in the Search Scope pane.
Changes:
  • The comments in the DocFetcher.bat file were printed in the command prompt.
Bugfixes:
  • Crashes:
    • During startup saying “invalid sash weights”;
    • On certain CHM files;
    • On RTF files containing images;
    • IndexOutOfBoundsException;
    • NullPointerException during indexing;
    • When trying to rename a folder beneath an index (i.e. a top-level folder). Now the renaming operation is only enabled for indexes;
    • Under certain circumstances when clicking on the buttons in the toolbar above the preview pane.
  • Fixed Outlook PST indexing issues.
  • Directory paths as long as or longer than 260 characters were incorrectly identified as NTFS junctions, causing some directories to be ignored during indexing.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

Tremendous search program that has saved me again and again, finding files and content that other programs miss. Each version seems to add to the pile of file formats it can index. As a result, it's on every machine I own and some I don't.

How about making network scanners visible? Lots of AIO network printers around.

Can someone tell me where the .jpg images are left behind? I want to delete them but am unable to find them. Thanks.

FileOptimizer v9.50 Updated

billon on 10 Jan 2017
  • 109MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Jan 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF), and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe (for 32-bit OS) or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder

What's new?
  • Fixed a regression since FileOptimizer 9.30, that could avoid some plugin optimizations to not being applied.
  • Fixed a bug when LogLevel was 4, when Optimized Size could be reported as 0 bytes in some situations.
  • Updated pingo to 0.52c.
  • Updated ImageMagick 7.0.4.3 with HDRI support.
  • Some minor optimizations and code cleanup.

Can't start the app on WindowsXP - it misses BORLNDMM.DLL. Just plain adding of that .DLL doesn't resolve the issue...((
Any ideas for the solution?

Midas on 2015-12-27 03:05

@kozak: did you try registering that DLL with Windows?
(e.g., "regsvr32 BORLNDMM.DLL" at the command line)

Most images and files I post to portablefreeware go through this amazing compression tool. When compressing PDF files, I strongly recommend enabling the lossy DPI compression settings (usually around 150 or 200 is fine for most documents).
