Color toggle maybe? (I don't use that one myself)

For hard to read pages I use No Color.

Note that the clip command isn't available on Windows XP and earlier versions op Windows by default. See here for more information and instructions how to obtain the functionality if  your system does not have it.

And Skrommel also made a simple one too (of course): WhatColor.

5  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Eye dropper app to get pixel color for HTML background color on: August 07, 2013, 11:59:27 AM
Pixie is indeed a standalone exe, which you can use to copy the HTML code (default shortcut: Ctrl+Alt+C).

If you want a color picker with a "normal" window or a bit more options you can try Just Color Picker, which supports portability and has no tray icon.


Another simple one: Colorette. This one has a sound effect and when a color is picked it copies the code to the clipboard and exits.
6  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Favorite Firefox Builds for Windows? on: May 13, 2013, 01:36:52 PM
It seems to give me an error "not compatible with Pale Moon 19.0.2"...
Hmm, it installs fine in Pale Moon Portable 20.0.1-x64 on my system*. I've no idea why it doesn't on yours.
Note that you can also add a MultiFox toolbar button, as a separate add-on.

* Yup, I also use "multi-Firefox" setup: Firefox as my default browser, Pale Moon Portable for wiki logins and a Firefox Portable for other persons in the household.

For my ultra-heavy-duty favorite pages, I made an entire (low tek) special home page with them. Thus it's available from anywhere, so I don't have to think about home comp vs phone vs friend's house vs net cafe vs hotel. It's just there.

I do the same thing for sites I think I'll want to come back to fairly often.   For the rest, I use Linkman Pro, which I love for many reasons, including its superfast search capabilities.  I keep an identical copy of Linkman on my netbook.
I also use Linkman Pro, but I have set MyBookmarks as my homepage/new tab page for the frequent visited pages. Previously I only used the bookmark toolbar in Firefox, but it became too crowded...

Is it an option to use Multifox for different logins?

You can also run multiple instances of Firefox Portable.

Screenshot Capture was reviewed at addictivetips two day ago:

Capture Screenshots, Edit And Add Special Effects & Objects

Quote
We have previously covered screenshot tools like Shotty and Greenshot, but if you are looking for a screenshot tool that lets you do more than just capture screen area, give Screenshot Captor a try. Screenshot Captor is a very extensive screenshot capturing tool that lets you take screenshots, edit them, add special effects, adjust colors, add objects and share with others. It lets you specify pre-capture and post-capture settings, special effect and drawing object options and file naming templates.

Quote
Screenshot Captor is a massive tool with a lot more options included.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: lightweight software for organizing notes? (not web-based) on: November 16, 2011, 01:23:17 PM
The best so far is keeping different win32pad (a lightweight txt editor) windows on my second screen and moving them around as needed, but that's not perfect because when Windows crashes I lose them all...

For that role I use 2 instances of Memo (AHK scripts by Drugwash) which has auto-save.
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Firefox 8 is out on: November 09, 2011, 02:32:52 PM
Mozilla Firefox 8.0 is out

Update to version 8 automatically changed the theme to the Default 8.0 theme. (New update behavior?)
At first I didn't notice that myself, but my mum started yelling: "$#%@, where are the green back and forward buttons?" Grin

thanks for the report.
You're welcome.

2) What is the 'Toaster'???
@skwire: maybe rename the "Enable toaster popup" to "Enable toaster popup on song change" is a little bit clearer what to expect?

Another thing, can you change the "Show toaster popup" hotkey action to always show the toaster?
That is: show it also if the options "Enable toaster popup" = False and/or "Do not show toaster popup while main window is active" = True.

require further interaction.
I know, but...
hotkey. start typing
will at least need some dialog, IMHO. If a desktop mail client is present, I would prefer to use it.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for 'self email' sender on: September 05, 2011, 12:00:32 PM
@justice: Do you use a desktop e-mail client? If so, why not use mailto:? (reference here)

The following AutoHotkey code gives the (in my case Thunderbird) compose window, in which I can edit the message before sending it:
Formatted for Autohotkey with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. #7::
  2. Run, mailto:me@you.us?subject=This is the subject line&body=This is the body text.


Or:

Or use Blat with AutoHotkey with a DllCall.
Or... use AutoHotkey with CDO COM (with or without AHK_L).

Back in the day, there was tag.exe by Ca5e.  However, it seems that his original site is no more.   Sad  You can grab the latest version I had in my archives from my site:  http://www.skwire.net/~apps/misc/tag.zip

The latest version is 2.0.52 (Still, dated: 2007-05-03). Since your latest version development is done by synthetic soul.

Or you can download it from Softpedia.

Thanks Winkie thumbs up
You're welcome.
So, we can call this one done?
Or did you catch the AHK-virus and want some other features?
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Windows management script on: August 19, 2011, 01:04:20 PM
I see there's a 64bit version - would you recommend that?
Not sure about that. I have no experience with 64-bit.

tried the first example, it works

But if you want to update to AHK_L the hotkey can become this:
Formatted for Autohotkey with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. #q::ComObjCreate("Shell.Application").ShutdownWindows()
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Windows management script on: August 18, 2011, 02:52:52 PM
It should be possible to show the standard Windows shutdown dailog. At least, ShutdownWindows works on my WinXP system (Can't test it on Win7).
@tomos: what AutoHotkey version do you use?

Mozilla Plans To Hide Firefox Version

Conclusion:
Quote from: Nebulus
It seems like they somehow want to hide the fact that the version changes each 5 minutes, which suggest that they are aware it’s not exactly the best idea smiley So basically, we have a bad idea, we implement it and then hide it from the user. Great plan, shows a responsible attitude!
