BetaNews describes AdAware8 as an AV program at freeware level (correction needed i believe).
Anyone use this program with success?
302  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The last time your AntiVirus saved you! on: May 23, 2008, 07:09:23 PM
Its hard to remember the last time I had an anti-virus program installed on my PC.  Sometime in the mid to late 90s I would guess.  Back then it wasn't as big a problem and these days I know how to not get infected.  I don't suggest people roll the way I do though.

I don't think you're the only one to do so.
With AVG8 hogging up so much energy I've decided to do without (even though i've tried AVAST free edition which did quite well), so i've been doing away with one now for about a week.
If you share your PC with others, then that can make it a must.
Haven't had a virus attack in about a year (then again, it was AVG's own mistake which mistook a k-meleon.exe file as a virus - of all things!).

mwang, you're an ace!  Cool

Although the "show experimental addons" was a bit tricky to find, i did make it.
Add Bookmark Here2 did the trick (no need for OpenBook). Thanks!

BTW, Mouse Gestures has been updated and seems to be doing just fine.

Now if i can find an extension for my Thunderbird contacts that syncs just fine with GMail...
We're off hunting again!

304  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox extensions for Minefield on: May 20, 2008, 06:45:11 PM
OpenBook i find offers more options to adding bookmarks, keyword field for example.

I think you get that with the standard Add Bookmark dialog with FF3. No?

I'm afraid not.

I'm using Diigo's bookmarking system but somehow still prefer FX's, especially with new tagging method and Foxmarks beta which supports this new bookmarking way. It always faster to find what your looking for now with the url field acting like LocationBar2 and more!   Thmbsup

I'm also using Diigo, and I like it in general, but not sure if I'll stick with it yet. The new bookmark system of FF3 is apparently giving ruse to a horde of new extensions. Many of them are now marked as experimental. We'll see how many of them mature in the end.

Oh?! It would be nice to know a little more about these novelties. 

With extensions checking disabled, i now have an issue with tabs interface.
The "x" to close them no longer appears and i don't feel like going through the safe mode process to find out which extension is giving the problem. Have work to do!

Update: by chance, it turns out a skin was making the "x" disappearing from the tabs.

Does your mouse have a middle button? I close tabs with it all the time. Not sure what makes it working, though: Firegesture, Tab Mix Plus, or something else.

Middle click to close tabs?
I like that! I recently discovered that you could open links to a new tab with middle click but this one's new for me. Thanks!

Of course, one of those three that fail to work is my fav OpenBook...

what about this version?

Hi Lanux,

It looks like a no go.
Thanks just the same, looks like i will have to wait for next official Firefox release.
The speed enhancement to this browser makes this waiting time most bearable.

mwang,

I finally decided to be brave and followed lanux128's tip about creating new boolean.
3 out of 23 (including themes) fail to work.
No crashes, not bad i say!

Of course, one of those three that fail to work is my fav OpenBook...  Cry


FX3RC1 seems to chew up more on CPU than FX2 (with extensions compatibility check off, even more).
308  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firefox extensions for Minefield on: May 18, 2008, 04:15:09 PM
As was anxious to test latest FX3RC1,
i simply followed the Mozillazine thread which shows you how to set up Minefield and have it run side by side with FX2 (c'est la même chose):
1. Create new profile (without starting it);
2. Install FX3RC1 (without running it);
3. Right-click FX3RC1 icon > Properties, on the Target: line add the following:
space hyphen P space profileName

If not, just wait for the latest upgrade, i'm sure it won't be long now.

BTW, FireGestures fails to work on RC1 so, checked out MouseGestures once again and it won't work either. Went over to the creators' page and he made a beta which works! Yay!!!  Kiss
FireGestures' creator has no beta as of today.

As usual, most extensions are not available but at least i have MouseGestures and AdblockPlus and Google's Notebook!   cheesy  LocationBar2 won't be necessary anymore in this version.
309  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Dilemma - Free AVG8 - Buggy; Updates for Free AVG 7.5 ending May 08 on: May 17, 2008, 05:27:23 PM
As some know from a previous post, i regret AVG8 for becoming bloatware or mem hog.

Was on AVG8 Network Ed., went to free version still unhappy.

Tried AVAST and was content.

But... being more incline on not opening attachments anymore i uninstalled it and now run without any AV. Not wise? Wonder how many users here do the same nowadays?

lanux128,

I'm flabergasted! Not sure if it's a word but just overwhelmed!  smiley
Actually, Mouse Gestures was one but i found an excellent replacement with Fire Gestures!

Bookmark Duplicate Detector has always been part of my repertoire.

Found this link to "Nightly Tester Tool" at:
http://www.oxymoronical.com/web/firefox/nightly
Will give it a shot!

Fedorov? Wasn't he an excellent player for the Red Wings?

Update: did work to get the Nightly Tester Tool but some extensions still don't work.
The other issue is, how do you install an extension from the site if you can't even download it?
312  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Firefox extensions for Minefield on: May 13, 2008, 07:19:52 AM
Mozillazine is informative but slow...

Anyone have a good list of extensions that works with Firefox Minefield?

313  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxthon or Avant? on: May 12, 2008, 07:21:37 AM
Geeze, i wonder which browser SRI finally opted for?

Maxthon seems to also have some security related options that AVANT does not. Personally, i've been deeper into latest Opera (9972) which by default is most secure than any on the market (least that's what i am told).
314  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Thanks and Kudos on: May 11, 2008, 06:55:15 AM
I like to say the same about FARR!
At first it looked like something rather accessory, non essential.
Today, it's one of the first five programs i have to install when reloading Windows.

It doesn't keep track of Opera's history.
Only IE and Firefox.

...
Incidentally, I think one of the default Search Folders in FARR isn't working, %MYRECENTDOCS%.  Anyone see this problem as well?

Working fine here.

BTW, RecentX is a fine program even if it does occasionally spurt up on resources.
But it's nothing that serious.

From a practical point of view, i find myself more often wondering where i visited a certain webpage than on my last viewed documents. If you do percentage check of webpages visited over documents you last worked on, i'm sure you'll find which one you check up most quite easily. 
317  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Recentx at Giveawayoftheday on: May 06, 2008, 06:50:25 PM
With FARR always on and Opera's latest builds that offer excellent bookmark/history search i don't feel the need for RecentX much anymore.

In fact, i bought it a while ago and did find that it used more resources than i felt it should.

Don't use it nor need it anymore.
318  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: which hierarchical note program? on: May 01, 2008, 03:26:38 PM
(I recently noticed that the project is still being carried on SourceForge as if it were still active.)

It's been on SF for ages.

The code has always been open and for the taking, but the code is ugly, since I was learning as I went, and it would be quite difficult to expand it without first refactoring the heck out of it. I intended to rewrite the thing from scratch, but never managed to put together anything. Not for lack of trying, I just tried to bit more than I could chew.

I'm afraid the project is the opposite of active smiley



Marek!
It's good to see you here!  Cool
I just downloaded Keynote today as i've adopted it as clipboard monitor.
Just perfect!

It would be nice if someone could pick up on it, now that it's open source. 
319  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxthon or Avant? on: April 29, 2008, 04:27:14 AM
...Not multipart , but multisource - P2P even.
Read up at http://blog.maxthon.com/?p=82
Good point!
Guess people still to need to keep their AV programs on hand.
320  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is the currently best Desktop Search software? on: April 26, 2008, 05:16:13 PM
Even for desktop searches I use a small grep tool called: BareGrep 

Really love this piece of freeware. Get it from www.baremetalsoft.com

My system is not indexed in any way and it takes 1.5 seconds to search my complete C: drive for all *.jpg files (and finding 6045 of them).

It is also portable (one executable file which is about 200 kilobyte in size).

I like that!
Never heard of it before but it looks cool!
You may not be in the know, but you never know!
Is there a way to have words with "foreign" accents searched too?
321  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: PC Tools AV - an opinion please! on: April 24, 2008, 04:12:42 PM
There is a minor issue with PC Tools.
If you have more than one user on XP Home you must shut off on one before loging into another.   Sad
322  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: PC Tools AV - an opinion please! on: April 23, 2008, 08:23:20 PM
Lashiec,

Glad you dropped by with that input!
Why the Network Edition you ask?
Well, i belong to a small group and only have access through the network.
That's the edition they've subscribed us to but i did finally install the PC Tools AV and it seems to be doing quite well. Very little resource consumption (only see two "programs" running when CTRL + ALT + DEL).
AVG had four (if not five)!
Besides, not that i want to complain, but my last support request to AVG was a hassle.
Why bother paying if you can't get the support they promise?
I know, it may have simply been my turn just like anyone who buys a computer these days.
It can be the best and still turn out to be a lemon.

Hi,

It's a boring thread, i know...

I've been using AVG AV Network Ed. but find it to be a resource hog on poor ol' XPSP2 with 1.2G of RAM, especially with their version 8 - Anyone willing to recommend their free version as an alternative?

Would appreciate an honest opinion on PC Tools free version too!

@Lashiec,

Glad you found the technical reasons for this.
Wonder if Firefox or Opera will ever pickup on it?
Firefox3B5 is probably the fastest yet in the Mozilla family but with this Maxthon2,
i must admit that i'm mighty tempted to make a switch.
325  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxthon or Avant? on: April 21, 2008, 07:55:57 PM
AVANT is probably a bit faster than Maxthon2 but the later probably has the fastest integrated downloader on the market. Like, i downloaded OpenOffice in less than 12 minutes once. Something that would normally take about 40 min. with other browsers.
