Interesting. One of the few comics viewers I've seen that advertises printing capability / quality.

Results of some digging:

There are some premium features that make me wonder what adware tendencies the regular download has:

A softpedia user complaining about nagscreen, which might be a minor issue:

Wine capability, bosskey, and winamp controls are claimed here:

Indeed, the installer offers to download some 3rd party software and toolbar. Installer = Adware, Portable version = freeware.

Haven't notice one yet. Some features are locked though to encorage donations but that is advertised on the Website.
Yes, there is a BossKey (hotkey X by default) and WinAmp/Media Player control.

GonVisor version 2.42.06 released. Has anyone checked the recent versions of GonVisor for portability? I am asking because in the change log for the latest version the developer says that:
– Do not force to associate cbr/cbz files in portable version.

I think that would affect some of the settings but not all.
