-1- qTox chat window: -2- qTox chat window in separate window: -3- qTox settings window: qTox portable:
Download qTox-stable_build_windows_x86_release.zip for x32 systems or qTox-stable_build_windows_x86-64_release.zip for x64 systems, unpack the archive, run qtox.exe, open Settings (the cog-wheel in qTox left panel- "Change your settings"), go to Advanced and check "Make Tox portable". qTox is not stealth- it creates an empty folder in AppData (C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\tox).
qTox is open-source released under GPL license and the source code can be downloaded at GitHub.
Compared to Isotoxin, qTox uses a bit more RAM (Isotoxin about 40 MB, qTox about 51 MB) and is not stealth but qTox (as the name implies it uses Qt) has the advantage of being cross-platform while Isotoxin runs only on Windows.
