Publisher's Description

ShirusuPad is a simple, yet powerful program designed to keep notes of any kind. Perfect for making notes while surfing, programming, or while brainstorming before a new project. It can even be used as a simple library containing your favorite links, addresses, and phone numbers. You can directly click on highlighted URLs to open them with the default webbrowser. And all the information can later be accessed simply by clicking on the icon in the System Tray.

Tabs wrap would be nice?
Side Panel & Tabs - Exchange Position?
All floating notes appear on one alt-tab?
Very long notes in floating move up but snap to top?

Nice program - been using it for a few versions. An update is due, though. The ability to save tabs in a project file (instead of the limited export feature) would be helpful and adding notes to checklists will expand it a lot. Finally, some rich formatting options like bold and underline would be cool.

Still, there's nothing better I know of on the market. It's free, light in resources and easy to access. Font sizes can be changed and the checklist/notification features are terrific if you need them.

Oddish, of course you can adjust the font size, both in the tabs and in the text box.

Why are people so quick to judge without even giving the programs a proper chance? If you don't like the program, that's fine, but to give it a bad review without even testing it is just bad manners.

I would've given it a 4, but just the fact that you can't even adjust the completely ridiculous 0.00001 pt font size takes it down two notches.

Streamlined, convenient interface, quite few bugs for a beta and free. 5 stars.

Tabbed 'Notepad Replacement' with transparency.

Transparency in Windows, generally, sucks. The tabbed notes concept is very good however.

Controls (like "Exit") in the System Tray -instead of on the app window- is plain inconvenient !

NoteTab Lite...

...isn't as futuristic looking, but functionally far superior.

This is a really good program, with a good concwpt, but there are several things that would make it better.
My biggest complaint is that there's no option (atleast that I can find) to make it stay under the active window.
Transparency is ok, as is the fact that you can click the sys-tray icon and make it vanish, but the option to have it under everything else would be nice.
Other than that it seems good and functional. I'll definitely use it.

Like no other program I have ever used! So simple yet so useful. This is for people who like to economize their desktop space and make the most out of every pixel. I use it at work and at home. One bad thing - with this new 1.0 version, it forces itself to be wider than it used to. I want it narrower like the .99 version!

PC Rat, you have missunderstood the concept of ShirusuPad totaly. It as absolutely not ment to be a "Notepad replacement", and your comparement with NoteTab... The two programs have nothing in common, and are not ment to be used in the same way. Have you even tried ShirusuPad before writing the review?

As for the controls being placed in the System Tray... Again, you show that you have missunderstood the whole point of this program. You are not supposed to use Exit. All other controls in the System Tray menu, including 'Exit', are those that are supposed to be used rearly.

Please understand that I am not blaming you for giving the program a negative review. I just want to ask you, to get your facts right before making another one.

Good program. I like the easy access and small footprint, and the customizable appearance. I have a couple of wishes that would separate Shiruspad from the pack: It needs an optional sticky search bar at the top of the main window. That way, when you launch the main window, you can just type in a key word and be instantly taken to all occurrences of the keyword. There could be a check box to search the current tab or all tabs. This would make Shiruspad like a "freeform database" if one so wished. It would also make it score 6 points out of 5!
