What about WhatsApp!!!

webfork on 2016-09-05 15:13

@Realist: I haven't tested it because, unlike Isotoxin, WhatsApp is only out for Win8 and higher, closed source, and and is owned by Facebook. Their Wikipedia page lists some other concerns.

freakazoid on 2016-09-10 19:34

@Realist - Just go to web.whatsapp.com. Their "app" is just a wrapper for that.

FileOptimizer v9.70 Updated

billon on 25 Mar 2017
  • 109MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 25 Mar 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF), and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

Can't start the app on WindowsXP - it misses BORLNDMM.DLL. Just plain adding of that .DLL doesn't resolve the issue...((
Any ideas for the solution?

Midas on 2015-12-27 03:05

@kozak: did you try registering that DLL with Windows?
(e.g., "regsvr32 BORLNDMM.DLL" at the command line)

Most images and files I post to portablefreeware go through this amazing compression tool. When compressing PDF files, I strongly recommend enabling the lossy DPI compression settings (usually around 150 or 200 is fine for most documents).

CornHolio: That's really something for the forums.

JohnTHaller on 2016-02-18 00:44

The publisher seems to have pulled the new release and is serving the 11.0.53254 release from December for both standard and portable downloads even though the main download page still shows 11.0.55321 as the current version.

Hi,
One more time, it's impossible to download Portable version. We are pulsed from page to page and finally landed on the original one.

IanFromBarrie on 2016-07-20 15:57

Same experience as @Guido76 at 11:45AM EST. Looking back over the comments, it seems that Piriform has got web platform problems. Hope that sort of sloppiness doesn't carry over into the actual product.

An alternative link to the Softpedia download has been added to the entry.
