v2.0.0.0 is now out in stable, after almost 10 long years, and it's still the best Hex editor!

Seconding Special's praise for HxD 2.0

HxD was remarkably useful yet in its former v1.1.7 incarnation.
Ten years on, the v2.0 release, resurrected from limbo, Phoenix-like,
offers an amazing list of new features and enhancements, such as:

• New Data Inspector
• New Unicode support
• Enhanced Search window
• …

but is it "stealth"?

Notice error in description. Website says it will work on Vista and Win 7. How do you update whenever the software developer indicates that package runs on newer OS platforms?

Glad v3.3.4 fixes a pesky WinXP bug introduced in previous version...;-)

I just happened to stumble upon this app because I was viewing the author's site. What a lifesaver! Really works! Can't believe I didn't know about this app sooner!

Midas on 2020-02-28 07:34

Yes, truly a lifesaver. Been using it for some time now, since my 4GB only laptop started struggling with modern day resource hog browsers... I have upgraded RAM but just kept using it.
