Re: TreePAD

Incidentally, Treepad ( Lite ) was also an early favorite of mine due to its well documented text-based note/database format and CSV compatibility -- in a previous age, I used it quite extensively to manage some hierarchical onthologies/classifications I was in charge of. After I left that role, my ...

Re: Freetube - bypass YouTube age restrictions

Incidentally, there's an issue open regarding Freetube 's portability at https://github.com/FreeTubeApp/FreeTube/issues/746. Apparently -- I haven't tested this -- you can now direct settings to program folder with the " --user-data-dir= ..." CLI parameter. Freetube 's latest version is v0.18.0 Beta...

Re: Softmaker FreeOffice

Quoting here verbatim what user Nuno Silva commented in FO database entry : There is also (with the same architecure) Ashampoo Free Office : https://www.ashampoo.com/en-us/office-free a related, a bit older (2012), but rather compact, full-fledged compatible office suite.

Re: FileVoyager - file manager

Thanks for the info -- TPFC is all volunteer work and not automated, so slips happen in tandem with community focus.

Anyway, I updated FileVoyager's version info in the database entry -- but you're welcome to do it yourself... :thumbsup:

Re: Harmony v1.00.3320 - Digital display chiming clock with 100+ chimes + alarms + reminders (Portable)

@ blaiz : May I suggest you replace OP subject with something a little terser? Along the lines of " Harmony (clock app with user alarms, reminders and chiming) "... IMHO, it will improve topic memorability and retrievability, as well as time-proof it, considering you'll be unable to edit it after a ...

Re: Iridium Browser - open source, chromium-based

PORTABILITY I didn't run a thorough test but it does appear to have some portability enabled. Just make sure you use the included .LNK file or create a batch file with the same info: "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe" /c "START %cd%\iridium.exe --user-data-dir=%cd%\Profile" Quick note to point out that ...

Re: Added Windows 11 to "Runs on" list

Kind of off-topic, but as a follow-up to my post above concerning Android custom ROMs , here's none other than [allegedly?] Edward Snowden's own appraisal, mostly focused on GrapheneOS : GrapheneOS has been the best Android experience I’ve had, especially on Pixel phones, in the last decade. It has ...

Speek (Peer-to-peer secure messenger)

Being multi-platform FLOSS (including an Android version), Speek looked interesting but it doesn't make any mention of portability, so I'm assuming it's not... Speek.Chat is a peer-to-peer instant messaging system built on the Tor Network hidden services. Speek is serverless, stores no metadata, req...
