Re: HTML Notepad - HTML WYSIWYG editor, cross platform

Good suggestion. Also, I absolutely love the animated intro on the home page. That's definitely what program intros should look like.

Re: LIII BitTorrent Client

I'm a usually a little cautious with anything "early stage" and "bittorrent" but that you've been doing so much testing makes me want to check it out.

Re: Exselo - desktop search

Update here : so I finally removed this program from my machine about a month ago ... Summary of issues Takes up a huge amount of resources in disk space, processor, RAM, etc. More than any freeware I've ever tested.

Re: Are betas allowed to be listed or must only stable versions be listed?

If I recall correctly, although Beta versions aren't welcome in the database, some exceptions are allowed -- I'm sure webfork can further substantiate that. Yes, we accept beta software into the database. I haven't added it to the FAQ just because it's not frequently asked about. There are a few re...

Re: Windows 9 is... Windows 10

I've read multiple times MS reduced their quality assurance/bug testing team prior to W10 which if so definitely shows. I keep hearing very encouraging things about Microsoft pretty much everywhere. They're friendly to open source, licensing, and there's no shortage of good things in terms of phila...

I made an app in .NET, which I want to be free and closed-source. It needs to install a few dlls a well. Can I post this and if so how? Definitely tell us where it installs the DLLs and settings. If you can keep everything about your program within in the application folder, that's a long way towar...

Donationware means that you're allowed to use the program without donating, you're just requested to donate.
I'd probably call programs that don't work unless you donate some amount of money "Commercial, pay what you like".

Re: DocFetcher - File Content Indexer

The program supports the excellent Apache Lucene query toolset , which looks radically more mature than what was available in the commercial X1 program. One particular trick in particular has come in handy the most: proximity searches. Using the series: "term1 term2"~10 ...means finding all appeara...

Great news. After updating so many entries over the years for projects I expect are abandoned, it's nice to see that at least one project was just dormant.

Such a small thing but I think that's awesome. Great addition. Will likely have this running on one of my machines who's network status is often suspect.

Re: Advanced but lightweight WYSIWYG HTML editor

I think this program might do something of what you're looking for:

.... seems to work with tables, reasonably lightweight, and I'd be surprised if it didn't work fine on XP.
