A lot has changed about this program since the last time I tested it including more SHA hashes and VirusTotal submission, bringing it line with other similar programs here on the site. I like it. Program entry and screenshot have been updated.
I'm impressed that it's faster than MD5, but I wonder how it performs with something other than modern processors. As BLAKE was written specifically for those toolsets, older machines (especially 32-bit), cell phones, and anything with an ARM processor will likely not have that kind of speed.
Regardless, if I was going to run de-duplication on a large file collection, it seems like Blake would be the way to go. Also, if services like Virustotal start using it for file reputation, I think it would take off rapidly. However, for my own local file verification, I'll probably stick with CRC32 checks.
