This PDF reader is of very poor quality and besides it shows ads it has a nag screen on program's exit ("Do you need...", "Do you want...", etc).

Cool_Pdf_Reader v3.5.0.550, a commendably compact (3Mb) PDF utility,
unfortunately creates about 16 objectionable registry entries...:-(

Thanks, John. I encountered it from a Guardian newspaper article, but I find IP sharing much less worrisome.

Yes, unfortunately Audacity is now considered spyware.

The new owners break down the two main types of data they collect as including data for analytics and for legal enforcement. This latter group is vague, general and consequently causes serious concern.

Just block the app with a firewall to prevent incoming and outgoing connections.

  • Added option to change the sorting column from the menu (View -> Sort By).

Also, if you hold down the shift key while choosing the sort menu item, you'll get a secondary sorting.

I wonder if it supports ajax methods that typically require websockets or similar newer technologies to pull data down, or even HTTPS? If it doesn't do ajax, I may as well just wget on chron. I don't really need pause/resume/multipart type stuff.

Just trying to automate huge amounts of downloads, then test for removal of the source material later if it gets a takedown request. Then, obviously, my script automatically deletes said material from my own machine to comply with the spirit as well as the letter of the law. Any other strategy would be indecent and/or seditious, particularly with takedowns on wikileaks and similar sites. =)

Maybe I should make my Banned Autoremover standalone and give it to this site. Anybody interested? We could call it AutoB& or AutoBahn. :P

Tiny file size and very-functional download manager.

Great to use for servers that limit download speeds to a low KB/s.

My only tiny nitpick is probably to change the default download parts from 1 to 2 or maybe 4. Other than that, thumbs up!
