@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.
Download XP Compatible from http://download.calibre-ebook.com/1.html

Incidentally there's an official portable version available on the Calibre website (https://calibre-ebook.com/download_portable), which works fine and appears to be stealth. (No Trolltech keys.)

Opera 50 is available. Not Beta. https://get.geo.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop/50.0.2762.45/

Opera is built on Chromium, the open-source version of Chrome, and as well as having its own extensions is compatible with most Chrome extensions (but not Chrome Applications).
The reference to the older version of Opera (v12) should also identify that it also lacks many of the modern features that are only available in the newer versions, e.g. Chrome compatibility, built in ad-blocker and free VPN, etc.

jcaiken: Thanks for the suggestions but these entries really aim to just be a summary of the application. There's really no way to make sure we're highlighting all the tech, features, and difference from other applications, but you're right that the ad-bocking by default is notable so I'll add that in.

Also, should note that the included "VPN" is really just a proxy.

To disable 'Start Screen' go to "Settings"-"Advanced" and uncheck "Show 'Start Screen' when Bandizip starts".
To revert to the old tool-bar go to "View"-"Toolbar" and select "Old".
