@hamasaki
Opening the download page of EmEditor automatically starts downloading the installers (x32 or x64 depending on user's system). I added direct download links to portable versions.

@bitcoin: if you're looking to minimize editor memory footprint, take a look at the likes of AkelPad, editor2 & win32pad. Also, take a look at this forum topic: https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=22061 ...

If you want small startup time, good one is CudaText, starts fast, less exe size.

Version 10.10.4 is not stealth - existing "editbone.ini" and "editbone.out" files in the application folder are moved to AppData/EditBone on first start.

smaragdus on 2016-07-25 21:56

EditBone is no longer portable- see http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=82292#p82292
I down-voted EditBone.

Not stealth anymore, creates 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder.

Special on 2017-08-30 23:17

So in the 7.5.1 changelog it says it fixed the above 'AppData/Local/Notepad++' folder bug, but I'm still getting them, can anyone else confirm?

What is good is that CudaText has text/raw/hex viewer - from the Universal Viewer app. For files which cannot be edited [huge files]. It can viewer, like Universal Viewer, files of any size, e.g. 4Gb. But not edit, only view.
