Re: BriskBard

@salvadordf Thank you for the detailed response. My test last night was brief and superficial. When I have time I will have another look and perhaps I will suggest some improvements too. Now I will suggest only one thing- improvement of speed dial. You may make the usage of the speed dial easier an...

Re: BriskBard 1.8.0

Someone who has time, network expertise and appropriate tools (for example Wireshark ) may check BriskBard for unsolicited connections and background requests. In my opinion a closed source browser cannot be trusted. I have tested several versions in the past ( 1.3.0 , 1.3.2 , 1.6.0 ) which I immedi...

Re: Auto Screen Capture 2.2.0.10

As of version 2.2.0.10 Auto Screen Capture seems fully portable at first glance- settings files ( XML ) are saved inside program folder: C:\Folder\Auto Screen Capture\!autoscreen\screens.xml C:\Folder\Auto Screen Capture\!autoscreen\screenshots.xml C:\Folder\Auto Screen Capture\!autoscreen\triggers....

Re: Tom's Viewer

@Tom

Welcome to the forum. Since Tom's Viewer does not have its own forum this thread can be used as a forum.

I too would appreciate an option to disable generation of Thumbs.tdb.

@zorro

I forgot to mention that the use of the thumbnails panel creates Thumbs.tdb in the browsed folder.

Re: Tom's Viewer

The developer reminded me that I did not mention the thumbnails panel, screen: https://images2.imgbox.com/00/49/eULMokaD_o.png The thumbnails panel can be accessed via the 'Browse Images' tool bar button (the second one from left to right). Edit The developer also informed me that Tom's Viewer may w...

Tom's Viewer

Preamble I have always appreciated slim, light and simple programs. Some time ago I came upon such a program which turned out to be rich, powerful and sporting an elegant GUI to boot- Tom's Viewer . I found out that it was portable by design. I liked this image viewer immediately, thought of possib...

Back to stone age with a quasi-browser which uses Trident engine (Internet Explorer) and tells me that I should install updates in order to use it:

Re: MusicPlayer2

@billon Thank you for the kind welcome. In short- there are some programs I have to review as their developers were kind to implement my suggestions. I forgot to mention that the player looks better for me when Use album cover as background is disabled. I don't have time to produce new screen-shots.

Re: qView (image viewer)

As usual incorrect information by Midas- qView is not portable:

Code: Select all

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\qView\qView
As of version 2.0 qView does not belong to Portable Freeware Submission sub-forum as it writes to Windows registry.

MusicPlayer2

Preamble When a developer implements a feature I have suggested I feel obliged to show my gratitude by reviewing his program. This is the case with MusicPlayer2 which until version 2.62 was available only in Chinese. I do not speak Chinese yet I decided to have a look at the program, it turned out ...

@billon I was not asking you but Midas. Or you have founded a moderators' party? Your post quenched the faint enthusiasm I still had to publish content here. I have already stopped posting at the comments section after Andrew Lee ruined it. I will stop posting in the forum too since it is a waste o...

Biniware Run

Preamble I have tested and used a huge number of launchers of all kinds (type-search-run, pop-up menus, category boxes, etc). Perhaps program launchers is the category I have most played with (together with hash tools). The ones I like and use most (which I have customized to my needs) are all aban...
