Re: Jsoft.fr PDF Reducer

Update out, no changelog. Now listed as v2.2, which is a bit of a jump from 1.4 back when I tested in March. Then again, version numbers aren't used equally across projects so who knows? https://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-to ... ucer.shtml

Re: Notes Keeper

Now at version 4.1.3.0 Thanks for that ... my system now has the requisite dotNET versions so I could test it out ... Note that you need a minimum 1200px screen width to use this program. It doesn't shrink below that size. As you can tell from the screenshots, it has lots of great rich text editor ...

Re: Xlideit Image Viewer

Retested this program with the latest version (v1.0.190711) and it's coming a long way, but the editor seemed a little buggy - I thought it didn't prompt me before applying changes to images, but then retesting it seemed to work fine. Parts of the image editor seem to work, others (box, write, fill,...

Re: QuickLook - very quick preview of different type files.

Update here: now at v.3.6.5 but definitely not portable. As discussed here, the author isn't keen on modifying settings: https://github.com/QL-Win/QuickLook/issues/394 Softpedia link: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Desktop-Enhancements/Other-Desktop-Enhancements/QuickLook-xupefei.shtml There's a simi...

Both versions are identical, except for a few visualization functions that are not available in the evaluation version.
I wish they would clarify what those visuals are.

Thanks for posting about that. It's not a sign that the project is ready for prime time.

Re: Visual Subst [filesystem grafting utility; shareware from v2]

Same shit happened with CloseAll It's not looking good. Added a note to one other ntwind program, Hidden Start. but TaskswitchXP and Alt+Tab terminator are still freeware, but don't appear to have many users due to age and bugs respectively. I've contacted Andrew about taking the entry offline.

Re: SRWare Iron - spyware

This is old news though! I think the broader suggestion here is that we take down the "privacy enhanced" notice on the entry. An analysis from back in 2013 from Cnet at minimum suggested it's no better or worse than standard Chrome: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/three-privacy-focused-browsers-compare...

Re: Atom (specialized text editor)

Given that the portable version of Atom we're listing is now over a year old, I started digging into a possible way to make the official version portable. Here are the steps I tried to make it work, so far no luck. Scroll down to the Latest Release box (in green) and download the zip version for you...

I have recently seen on ThumbApps.org some interesting portables.
They do have some interesting programs, but I would avoid their site for reasons discussed before.

Re: Easy Screen OCR (online text recognition utility)

Two alternatives:

* Capture2Text (viewtopic.php?p=48185#p48185), which I believe works locally.
* ShareX (https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2409) has an included image uploader that returns discovered text.

Re: Brosix Portable IM

Update on the Brosix and the Brx.World program: my login no longer works and now the program will ONLY login to the Brx.World service, which I never setup. Weird.
