  1. Review - NoScript (Jul 28, 2015)

    To me, this is absolutely indispensable for secure browsing. I wish they made it for Chrome as well. This add on is one of the main reasons I still use Firefox. It's just that good, and necessary.

  2. Review - fre:ac Development

    Snapshot 20150725 (Jul 25, 2015)

    2.5 years into development of this "branch" and it's finally starting to provide enough benefits to consider upgrading from Bonk 1.0.16. It's available in 64 bit code and now has what appears to be some true multi-core support. Conversion times for groups of files seems greatly improved over 1.0.16, for example. This, plus the return to the LAME encoder makes this development release worth looking at.

  3. Review - OpenOffice for Windows

    4.1.1 (Aug 22, 2014)

    I still think it's a great product, even though it's not cutting edge. But it's also more stable than LibreOffice, which for me, is a huge bonus. I also like that it outlines the printer margins in the page display by default.

    Worth a download without a doubt.

  4. Review - FreeCommander

    XE Release 635 (Oct 14, 2013)

    The last full version was in 2009. For some reason, they decided they needed a full on rewrite and stopped support of the 2009 version.

    4 years later, it still isn't done nor is it close to feature complete.

    What a complete and utter waste of time.

    It sort of works, that is why I give it a 2, but do yourself a favor - use 2009 version or buy Total Commander instead.

  5. Review - CCleaner for Windows

    4.06.4324 (Sep 30, 2013)

    Did they get rid of the SLIM version under Bulds? He only has 2 options now - Regular and Portable, and I don't want to get the adware junk inclusion stuff.

  6. Comment - Nvidia improves performance, not power, ahead of E3 with new notebook GPU

    4.06.4324 (Jun 1, 2011 - 7:04 PM)

    I thought the new 485M was the top performer in the graphic market for Nvidia on the Mobile side?

  7. Comment - Tip: Recover valuable disk space after installing Windows 7 SP1

    4.06.4324 (Feb 27, 2011 - 1:30 PM)

    Will CCleaner also take care of removing these files?

  8. Comment - Tip: Protect your PC with Paragon Backup & Recovery (Advanced) Free 2011

    4.06.4324 (Feb 14, 2011 - 11:30 PM)

    Cool info. Thanks!

    I've been using Paragon Partition Manager for the last few years and it has been very reliable and capable for me, which Partition Magic stopped being for some reason.

    I'll give this app a try. Free = Win!

  9. Comment - LibreOffice 3.3: Fast, fun and functional

    4.06.4324 (Feb 8, 2011 - 7:40 PM)

    There is a list of how many features are in LibreOffice not in OpenOffice on their page, and there are a lot, including more aggressive support for open standards such as SVG, and they have already been chosen to replace OpenOffice in an increasing number of Linux distributions, including Ubuntu and OpenSuse (I believe). Many of the coders that used to work on OpenOffice have moved over to LibreOffice, so the people most familiar with the codebase are no longer contributing to OpenOffice. It also looks like development in LibreOffice is going to be more constant and less stagnant than OpenOffice.

    4.06.4324 (Feb 7, 2011 - 6:05 PM)

    Not perfect but it is on a better path than OpenOffice and if they can improve the SVG support and include hardcore updates to the help / documentation, I would see no reason to go with OpenOffice at all.
