SHA1 Cracked?

Re: basilisk web browser

It's kind of crazy to think that around 15 years of addon history could get wiped by the browser company who allowed it to flourish but they've burned that bridge now and are continuing with WebExtensions instead. It's really lose-lose decision. If Mozilla doesn't put away the old toys, no one's go...

Re: Presentation - draft site intro

The presentation looks good to me.

You could mention that in addition to not needing to insert settings on every PC, with portable software you also don't need to install your favorite programs on every PC you use. They are already there on your external drive.

Re: Firefox Portable

OTOH, they're adding yet another tracking device to the browser, without convenient user safeguards or easy opt-out paths: Mozilla revealed recently that it would integrate Hyperlink Ping Tracking in the Firefox web browser and enable it by default. @ www.ghacks.net /2019/05/10/simple-ping-blocker-...

Re: Search overloaded?

Referring to PortableFreeware on DuckDuckGo: !pfw Could it be related to this post/thread? I'm not sure, but I doubt it: the "!pfw" search in DuckDuckGo just directs to the search of TPFC catalogue and not a search of the Forum. Catalog search also performs a forum search to show related threads. (...

First of all, I'm the developer that created BriskBard. I hope I'm not breaking any forum rule for self-promotion. If so, please accept my excuses and feel free to delete this post.
You're not. We like it when developers drop by. :)

Re: This app rocks! This app sucks! Does this work properly?

Might as well just change those to "add to favorites" and "remove from favorites", then change, or leave the "rocks" / "sucks" for voting purposes, because right now it seems like you can continually downvote an app by doing "this app sucks" over and over again because the option is still left ther...

Re: This app rocks! This app sucks! Does this work properly?

AFAIK, this is how it's supposed to work. "This app rocks" adds the app to your favorites, and "this app sucks" likewise removes it from there. Because an app that you dislike is unlikely to be in your favorites to begin with, "this app sucks" is always available even if the app isn't in your favori...

Re: Linux (apparently) NOT getting friendlier to portability

The Snap package I could skip as snaps will not run on MX as snaps do not work on distributions that do not run systemd as the default init process . I think my experiment with getting Falkon up and running on my machines demonstrates that while portable package formats (such as Flatpak and Snap ) ...

Re: Using Visual Studio Code

Curious if anyone has attempted to get Visual Studio Code working as a development editor for NT. Not finding much on this via search.

Re: Visual Studio Code - programmer's editor

I'm using VS Code myself for programming at work. It's a very nice editor, it gets improvements at a rather rapid rate (see January update release notes as an example), and it has a lot of features useful for programming, especially with extensions. For example, there is an ESLint extension, allowin...
