Why have separate links for 32 and 64 bit when both point at the same target?

joby_toss on 2016-08-06 07:01

So people would know this build is compatible with both systems (the downloaded file contains both versions).

@ahaider7: moreover, why not? Didn't you get what you needed?

Your instructions above say "Launch Start Tor Browser.exe and answer a few quick questions about your connection". Those instructions are misleading and confusing. I was stumped for a while until I realized the "Start Tor Browser" file is a shortcut, NOT an executable. Please correct the instructions by removing the text ".exe".

Version 4.5.2 available.

smaragdus on 2015-09-05 03:36

I needed to connect to an onion site and downloaded the latest version (5.0.2) but Australis makes Tor Browser absolutely terrible and unusable- I do not want to install heaps of add-ons just to restore features the Mozilla idiots removed. I had an earlier version of Tor Browser (3.6.0- before the advent of the abominable Australis) but the perpetual blinking of the Tor button urging for update is unbearable and cannot be disabled. It can be removed from the tool-bar but this way one cannot acquire new identities.

RetroShare v0.6.1 Updated

billon on 4 Sep 2016
  • 49MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 3 Sep 2016
  • Suggested by lautrepay

Retroshare is a feature-rich communications platform for small groups of users with a focus on privacy. The program includes an exclusive and secure toolset for instant messaging, chat rooms, forums, direct messages (e-mail), file server, VoIP, channels for distributing content, and link exchange. It functions as an open, distributed alternative to many commercial groupware programs.

Additional features include RSS feed reader, status messages (away/busy), different modes for low traffic, transfer and disk space limits, plugins, skins, and much more. Cross-platform (Mac, Linux, BSD).

Great for small businesses, groups, and a safer alternative to most file sharing methods. Networks can be small or large, but communications between users are limited by default to friends and friends-of-friends, with more specific controls available.

DriveCleanup v1.2.0 Updated

billon on 7 Aug 2016
  • 38KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 18 Jan 2016
  • Suggested by guinness

DriveCleanup removes all currently non present "Storage Volumes", "Disk", "CDROM", "Floppy" USB drives and their USB devices from the device tree. Furthermore it removes orphaned registry items related to these device types. Both are not removed by similar programs on the site and take up space on the registry, eventually slow down a computer over time.

To preview program actions, start with argument -T (test mode).

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).
