Efficient but not effecitve. Far more resource-friendly than the similarly-named "Hard Disk Indicator" (http://portablefreeware.com/?id=230) but not as usable. Red indicators and movement on the taskbar are distracting and thus make this only useful for diagnostics and not everyday use. Also, the scales provided are based on the previous minute of activity, not on actual hard drive speeds. Annoying.

"Writes settings to: Application folder"
...I used it a few times - and in fact it doesn't write ANY settings anywhere... I didn't try "save coder configuration" from the menu though.

It does appear to be stealth? When I first ran it, it created a 'appData/Roaming/Diffinity/diffinity.cfg' file, but if you copy that file to the portable location, delete the appdata folder and run Diffinity again, the cfg file isn't created.

Nice little player. The website has a page with plugins, but it's slightly misleading. The "Qmmp Plugin Pack" download directs to the player itself, and the others require building from source/installed dependencies.

Realist on 2016-10-06 16:25

Why do we another music player and that too which looks like WinAMP?

MIKLO on 2017-01-15 17:15

@Realist, I believe the more we have the better they will all get or they go away, after all competition makes the world go round. I would agree if all are the exact same then it is a waste, but coders usually try and add something more useful that the last version doesn't have. Just my thoughts. :)

Love this program -- my image viewer of choie for over a year now. Super easy batch naming, editing, and resize tools have saved me loads of time.

TP109 on 2022-03-23 09:16

Great tool for managing image files. It has a well-designed, simple, and intuitive interface that makes it easy to organize, move, rename, archive, rotate, print, and edit images. Not as comprehensive as many other similar/alternative apps on this site, but highly useful for the specialized image management tasks that it's designed for.

No need to use Google translate or anything like that.

Lean and mean x32 tray menu launcher, let down only by the lack of further development (seemingly ended in 2010) and drag'n'drop support -- uStart is a single 78 KB executable, and IMHO it's on par with PStart. Recommended.

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) v1.0.1

Andrew Lee on 30 Jan 2021
  • 12MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 28 Jan 2021
  • Suggested by ashghost

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) presents a before-and-after image compression view that allows you to reduce file size of an image into JPG, PNG, or GIF format. Includes optional metadata removal, batch operations, compression to a target file size, transparency options, and other common editing functions (flip, rotate, zoom, pan). Notable versus similar software in the ability to gradually reduce the available colors one-by-one (7, 8, 9, 10...), not just milestones of 16, 32, 64 etc.

The program is also available as a plugin for XnView, GIMP, or Irfanview (see website).

Functional in Linux using Wine. Many of the official entries here on PortableFreeware have used RIOT for compression. Note that the installer version of this program is considered adware.
