Hey, what are the other 2?!?
Total Commander ghisler.com
- I live in this app - Windows Explorer replacement.
Beyond Compare scootersoftware.com
- don't use it quite as often since discovering Total Commander, but when I need it, it's still the best at what it does - file and folder comparison and synchronization.
The previous transformative utilities which I've been using for 20 years (though they are still being enhanced every year) and are still very useful, are the command processors (replacements for cmd.exe) from jpsoftware.com
. Very powerful commands, incredible batch file capabilities.
I should also mention my two recent great loves: Clipmate clipmate.com
and Roboform roboform.com
Of course Irfanview irfanview.com
These are all from small developers.
Every 2-4 years I come across a utility which is so good that it transforms my work style. I can think of three such utilities in the past decade; FARR is one of those 3.
