Re: Tom's Viewer

4. It seems Tom's Viewer uses the themes background as the transparent layer "background" - personally I would prefer the option to see the "standard" checkered background for such images for example on a transparent PNG or PSD I would prefer to see the "checkboard" which is what is often shown in ...

Re: Opera (Presto) - browser listing suggestion

I wish they'd just open source the Presto engine, so able developers could take a go at updating it... *sigh* Well, there was that unofficial leak of the source code but yeah something official would have been better and allowed more to get on board. The contributors to unofficial patches haven't g...

Re: Tom's Viewer

Decent variety of themes. Interesting its dual-purpose with the integrated editing features. Could be useful for various occasional batch tasks.

Re: Do not use Microsoft Store

Thanks for the heads-up about these. Curious about MS hosting them on their Github as well. The non-sale price for the faux ScreenToGif is outrageous but obviously intended to look more attractive on sale. Perhaps you could tip off gHacks or similar about the issue and lack of response. Perhaps it'd...

Re: Opera (Presto) - browser listing suggestion

Where i can download classic opera extensions specially some screenshot tool (similar to fireshot in firefox) Presto extensions still appear in search results via DuckDuckGo/Google/etc but you'd need to know the name of the one you wanted since the Opera.com search hides Presto extensions. A caveat...

Re: Giffer [graphic utility; name provisional]

0.9.5 is out. "Release notes" are here . Settled on a proper name too - μGiffer . An error, 'Failed to create temporary work folder', occurs for me when launching this version each time. I run the program via a shortcut with the -c <configdirectorypath> parameter. After capturing something it outpu...

Re: Giffer [graphic utility; name provisional]

@Specular - Thanks. I nearly torn my wrist off, but managed to reproduce it! Uno mas, if you can, please - https://bvckup2.com/files/giffer-0.9.4.exe ? This should, in theory, fix it. Ah nice, this fixes the self-capture of the window during rapid movements (wasn't actually anticipating a fix since...

Giffer [graphic utility; name provisional]

@Specular - Can you give this build a try please - https://bvckup2.com/files/giffer-0.9.3.exe ? Seems to have fixed it for moderate panning speeds now, yup. Only if one rapidly moves the window will it occasionally reveal the window frame itself within the capture (see attachment) but that's hardly...

Giffer [graphic utility; name provisional]

Just a quick note to say that I somehow ended up making another spin-off program instead of, you know, continuing to diligently chew through the bvckup's todo list. Meet Giffer - a minimalist screen to gif recorder. * Can be used in a portable mode by feeding config folder path with "-c <path>" com...

Re: basilisk web browser

It's really lose-lose decision. If Mozilla doesn't put away the old toys, no one's going to make updated versions for the new browser. The truth is a large number of these tools represents a serious security concern and Mozilla is keen to avoid that stench. Even more important for Mozilla was that ...

Re: basilisk web browser

While the site notes that its XUL support means such addons are 'alive and well' it's unfortunately not as straightforward, since Mozilla themselves have killed most of the future use of such addons by deleting them entirely from their addon site. The only way any user now will get their hands on su...
