Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

MadEdit is an Open-Source & Cross-Platform Text/Hex Editor written in C++ and wxWidgets.
MadEdit can edit files in Text/Column/Hex modes, and supports many useful functions, e.g. SyntaxHighlightings, WordWrap, Encodings.
Freeware, unicode supported, and can quickly change encoding, just like in a browser!

Good support for multibyte chars in hex mode.

Posted to the database. Thanks!

I am always looking out for Unicode text editors that supports CJK encoding, and MadEdit seems to have a lot of CJK-related functions eg. convert to simplified/traditional Chinese.

Another MadEdit fork: ... -Mod.shtml

Looks like the developer is claiming bug fixes, Win10 compatibility, and drag-and-drop and word highlighting.
