WinInfoView runs exclusively under Vista / Win7 / Win8, as noted in the System Requirements.
For the diehard WinXP users among us, Nirsoft maintains two equivalent wireless monitoring utilities :

Very happy: I just used this program to help track down the least-used channel in an area with a LOT of wireless connections and a lot of interference. This saved a lot of time, effort and energy (including electricity as multiple devices keep rebroadcasting their data).

I was also impressed by the amount of data it pulled from the various WIFI services in the area. Great program.

@smaragdus Thanks. I downloaded it. BTW, XMPlay archives older versions here: https://support.xmplay.com/files.php?id=20

The problem seems to be related to plugins. It's working now. See post at un4seen forums here:

There's a v3.8.2.3 available.

I used to use WinAmp (over the years became bloated and tool forever to load), then tried Cool Player (good, but not enough features for me). XM Player is the perfect balance - super fast, reliable (so far), flexible, and customizable. J.U.S.T. Perfect!

A handy program that is especially good for scanning and analyzing individual directories. Displays data such as size on disk, number of files/subfolders, folder/file sizes, path lengths, file dates, and other useful information for each entry under the selected drive or folder.

Qupzilla is getting a little memory hungry. I have removed this from my favorites list.

If you want a barebones browser that uses little memory, I would recommend the latest version of K-Meleon.

@billon
At first look QupZilla version 2.1.0 seems to have improved significantly compared to version 2.0.2, but it uses far more resources compared to version 1.8.9. I did just a brief testing.

freakazoid on 2017-02-11 22:46

I can confirm what smaragdus said about v2.1.0.

Memory usage hovers around 120-140 MB RAM, but that is to be expected when the core engine is now updated to use QtWebEngine, which is powered by Chromium. To compare, I had an older version of Qupzilla v1.8.6 lying around and that used 210 MB RAM.

It's a good alternative to the existing Chromium-powered browsers, but if you're using a Chromium backend, you might as well use Chromium so you can gain access to the wealth of available extensions out there rather than some homebrewed versions that come with QupZilla.
