I can't get this software to work at all. Have reverted to PhonerLite, which has a clumsy interface but works OK. I like the neat gui for MicroSIP, but can't make outgoing calls at all, getting a 'connection timeout' message; and after answering an incoming call, can neither hear or be heard by caller.
Bizarre; use the same settings as for PhonerLite, and when MicroSIP is running, it registers with my VOIP provider (Sipgate) OK, but ... zilch!

Always wanted to get this client to work as a P2P-client with encrypted communication, but so far I havent had any success.

Oh, I forgot to mention that it come with installer, but it work on portable usb. Just extract IpSwitch.exe and run it. Program settings will be saved in data.ini in same location as IpSwitch.exe

@tpig:
Don't recommend outdated crap please.
Eusing's free IP Switcher refuses to work on anything better than Windows XP. So it's virtually useless.

AdrianK_IT on 2012-04-06 09:33

Please would someone edit the 'Synopsis' so it is less misleading. Apparently, this software is for ' ... mobile users ... at ... office ... ' yet is only 'free for personal use'!

WebBrowserPassView v1.80 Updated

billon on 30 Jun 2016
  • 387KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Jun 2016
  • Suggested by guinness

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 - 11.0), Mozilla Firefox (All Versions), Google Chrome, Chromium, Safari, Opera, SeaMonkey and Yandex Web browser. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

Portable browser e.g. Firefox's passwords can be viewed by manually setting Options->Advanced Options:
For example,
Firefox Profile=D:\Firefox\Data\profile
Firefox Installation=D:\Firefox\App\Firefox

useless. to most of us, PORTABLE requires us to be able to run as NON-ADMIN. can't use this. can't install it. not truly portable. don't get me wrong, I use it all the time on my cluster at home, just can't use this at work or on common machines at school.

dany on 2011-10-27 15:15

@Cattleya: Make sure you download the zip package, because the installer does the following:
"The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run."
The portable version leaves no driver behind, just tested it.

@kc: I used to do sysadmin for a small non-profit org. 7 pc's and 2 printers, no big deal. I carried all my tools on a pendrive. Off course I had admin-rights, but this is a typical scenario a lot of us are in, so it's not entirely useless, portable is the way to go for sysadmins ;)

CPUZ is old, tired and practically useless. It's heyday was about six years ago. Speccy is a must for today.
