17.0.1 Beta is now in Download section of web site.

avada on 2018-10-05 04:48

Slimjet is not portable to any useful degree. Don't even try it. I lost all of my extensions and (all?) settings, browsing session. (Bookmarks, history remained...)

I didn't even move it I just reinstalled Windows, then started it from the same place (same path) and it erased all that stuff... (I checked in the backup that the extension files are there...)

nima_amin on 2020-05-21 22:12

The problem avada describes still persists in version 26. I used Slimjet portable on my Windows 7 PC with no problems. In February I moved to a new PC with Windows 10, copied Slimjet from the old PC on a USB stick, and from there to the new PC , started it and all extensions and settings were gone. Only the profiles and bookmarks were kept.

Flashpeak's "support forum" unfortunatel doesn't give any support but keeps claiming if you copy the user folder from one version into the other it would work. Lie! Behaviour is the same as that described by avada and me above.

To make things worse: in version 26 it is no longer possible to print content as PDF using PDF-printers such as e.g. Adobe Acrobat or PDF Creator! Flashpeak claims to have no plans to fix that bug.

LibreOffice is a complete productivity suite including word processor, spreadsheet, presentations, database, drawing tool and more.

Alternatively, X-LibreOffice is also available.

Other available portable versions:

  • Still - more tested and stable but with fewer features/capabilities
  • Legacy - for WinXP/Vista users (unsupported)

(Tixati is not "72MB (uncompressed)"- it is either 38 MB (x32) or 36 MB (x64).)

Quite so, strictly speaking...

BUT...

Currently, the "Uncompressed size" field is formally defined in the entry form as:
   "Total size of application files when fully unarchived/uncompressed".

We don't really want to open a whole 'nother can of worms about what exactly ought to be the appropriate scope of the "uncompressed size" field definition, with implication for every current entry in the Data Base, do we ?

(and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

starshakur on 2018-05-05 15:17

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

Added a note about films because I watched that Sintel short film created with Blender, which was in some areas even better than the work Pixar and Dreamworks are putting out commercially.

Once again, the installer has malware/adware. Web of Trust rates the site with poor reputation in Trustworthiness and Child Safety. The application itself should be OK, but neither the installer nor the download link above is safe.

Password Security Scanner v1.61 Updated

billon on 8 Jul 2020
  • 252KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Jul 2020
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Password Security Scanner audits security information about stored passwords without displaying the password itself. Includes the total number of characters: numeric, lowercase/uppercase and repeating, as well as a rating of overall password strength. Can help determine whether the passwords used by other users are secured enough, without knowing or watching their actual passwords. Great for administrators concerned about security concerns caused by their users.

Currently scans the passwords of Internet Explorer, Mozilla-based Web browsers, Pale Moon, Mozilla Thunderbird, Chromium-based Web browsers, Dialup/VPN passwords, MSN/Windows Messenger, Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Windows Credentials Passwords.

All programs that claim to do password auditing should work this way. Admins don't need to know the actual password, just if its complex enough.

Mixture on 2019-04-03 09:55

@webfork, any software that can find out about how many numbers, upper case letters, lower case letters, symbols, punctuation characters, and length of a password, like Password Security Scanner, could be exploited to reveal the actual password itself. These kind of programs are very dangerous in that respect. That's why I'll never use Password Security Scanner.

Midas on 2019-04-04 07:35

@Mixture: bear in mind no system is ever 100% secure. Given enough resources, time and/or cunning a savvy hacker can get all your digital secrets. Your best bet is common sense, unrelenting vigilance and the help of stuff like the database at https://haveibeenpwned.com/ ...
