Time to block freeware connections

I recently pointed out to my friend how both Reddit and Twitter both have abysmal web interfaces that I really dislike using. In fact, not long after making the decision to stop using both programs on my device, I quit using both services almost entirely. I used to quite like Reddit's web app, so I'...

Re: Windows 9 is... Windows 10

I've not posted anything about Windows 11 both because I haven't seen anything interesting, but also because this is entirely what I expected from the next OS version: a fully cloud-based PC. They've been seeing money in cloud for years now (Office 365 is not cheap ) and it only makes sense that the...

Sure thing. Other programs from this crew have been pretty good on this topic, including Bluelife Hosts Editor

Registry Explorer

I'm not sure yet whether or not this beats any of the existing freeware tools but it definitely goes above and beyond the windows native tool, appears to be in active develoipment, and is open source. Requires : VS Studio 2018 (source only distro) Status : Untested Homepage: https://github.com/zodia...

Re: FreePlane Portable

There have been several updates since this was posted about last. I prefer the overall look and usability of XMind, but I have to say that FreePlane is just chock full of features. It also doesn't have any nagging feature lockdowns, as it's not "freemium" like XMind. Now at version 1.9.5 https://www...

TextWorx - text tweaker

It's hard to summarize everything this program does but a few things are: insert various date formats, change case to various different formats, paste as text, delete duplicate lines, HTML tags and a lot more. There are many text editors out there, and not all of them have the text-manipulation func...

Wise Toys - various freeware tools

For those of us familiar with freeware options, these are going to seem fairly simple. While others might enjoy the collection of tools, it takes up a lot of RAM and processes (Electron based) for somewhat basic freeware tools. Issues: the step recorder didn't work for me, the image converter compre...

Works pretty well. Previously I was using RBTray, but that doesn't work with all windows.
Yeah RB was my go-to for a long time. Glad that worked out.

AutoFire - auto-clicker tool

Synopsis : a dead-simple and very capable auto-clicker program. This post has nothing to do with Chicken Invaders Game, that’s just in the program title. In fact, this worked remarkably well with Left 4 Dead 2, which suggests it would also function well on various games based on Half Life 2, includ...

Re: FrameFun - image border and watermark

Old thread update:

Website has moved: https://www.hochstrasser.org/wiki/index ... i/FrameFun
Softpedia: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedi ... eFun.shtml

I use ShareX for something similar, but this still looks good despite the age.
