Re: Ueli - Keystroke launcher

The reasons PenDrive and igec mentioned are why I said "instant pass."

Not going to lie, Ueli does look good, but I wouldn't run it in the background. While it doesn't look as good, I use Executor instead as it uses very little memory and disk space.

Re: QupZilla

Thanks webfork. Entry looks good! Can I suggest editing the name of this topic to Falkon instead of Qupzilla? I also made a change to the alternative apps portion of the entry and replaced them with Otter Browser and X-Chromium. I listed Otter because it's probably the closest match to Falkon and X-...

Re: Is there a reliable program that monitors changes of web pages?

I had to conjure up something for a site that doesn't provide a RSS feed. I ended up using Pipes , which is sort of a Yahoo Pipes clone. You can create RSS feeds from any webpage, but it helps if you have a little knowledge of HTML to fully customize your feed and understand how to use it. Their doc...

Re: QupZilla

We should probably switch over the QupZilla listing to Falkon. Portableapps.com has a version for download here: https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/falkon-portable

There hasn't been a release in over a year though. Current version is using Chrome 69, which is way outdated.

Re: I cannot log in to the forum using the FireFox browser.

I'm using Firefox and am able to login.

I'm guessing you're either using some extensions or settings that block cookies or changes the page referer?

Re: program that can 'set default browser' ?

You should just rely on the native OS functionality for this. Unless your goal is to backup the existing default browser value so you can reinstate it after you've finished using your portable browser? Another alternative is to use a file manager (such as XYPlorer Pro) that can open custom file exte...

May I vote for a site-wide dark mode?
I'd just recommend using a dark mode extension for your browser. The most popular is Dark Reader and is available for both Firefox and Chrome.

And it doesn't require Andrew or tproli to do any changes to the site! :D

DuckDuckGo has a pretty good image search. Can filter by size and color.

Re: Cmder

Should we rename the thread "Cmder - packaged ConEmu and msysgit"? I don't think it's necessary to rename the thread. ConEmu clearly states it is based off of ConEmu on their Github repository page: https://github.com/cmderdev/cmder/blob/master/README.md Quote: It is based on ConEmu with major conf...

Re: Cmder

As I mentioned five years ago, Cmder is just ConEmu and msysgit bundled together.

If you don't need git support, just get ConEmu.

Re: IrfanView - image viewer and converter

I had to losslessly crop a JPEG file just now and found out that Irfanview can do this.

To use, select the portion of the JPEG you want to crop. Then go under Options and select 'JPG Lossless Crop... (Plugin)' and that's it!

Re: Hddb (Hard Disk Database) File Search

I wanted to return to this thread to post about Everything, which is HDDB's closest competitor and is still regularly maintained. It appears as though Everything now supports instant sorting, which was one of the main drawbacks vs. HDDB. Memory usage is about the same. I still like the usability of ...
