I just updated Firefox to to version 43.01 (released Dec 18, 2015) via the Help About menu. I was expecting 43.0  :huh:
It also appears that there is no release info about the changes for 43.01 on Mozilla at the moment.

Firefox 43.01
Release Notes don't exist, but only:
Firefox 43.0

+1 on that too. No reason to add that capability to SC

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Clipboard Help and Spell - New Name?
« on: September 25, 2015, 11:05 AM »
I think the word "Help" is confusing in the name.  "Helper" would be an improvement, but "History" would be much better, IMO.

My suggestion would be "Clipboard History+Spellchecker" which would provide a good description of what the program does and why someone would want it.

"Clipboard History+Spell" would be nearly as informative and a little shorter.

Good suggestion, imo. I use the program very occasionally, and the Clipboard Help part throws me off until I have a look at its main page on DC and remember what it is for.
Then again, being a serial downloader of freeware, I'm often at a loss when looking at older downloads, so I've started to keep a text file with the same name as the download (well, name and version)  containing the original url and description,  plus checksums if they were provided. Any memory aid helps...

Wow, things have changed so much since this question and Poll was first posted. Is Google Desktop Search still around? (I really didn't like that displaying of search results in a web browser).

Nowadays I would think a "Best" Desktop search would very much depend on your requirements and what viewers are important to you.

I'm a great fan of Everything Search, but that is because I mainly search for files rather than strings in files, and built-in viewers aren't that important to me.

I also still use Total commander a lot, and it works well enough for searching in text files when I know which folder(s) to search. The free MultiCommander has a pretty good File Search add-on.
But I guess these two aren't really Desktop Search tools.

Still not 100% up, especially for smaller projects. Code::Blocks, Dev C++, Lazarus IDE and PortableApps downloads are available, while small open source utilities like AkelPad Text Editor and ASuite (menu) aren't.

General Software Discussion / SourceForge in Maintenance Mode
« on: July 20, 2015, 08:58 PM »
Anyone else notice that SourceForge has been in "Maintenance Mode" since this weekend?

Maybe I've grown cynical with age, but eventually you realize that there will always be something better and faster with more memory and disk space.

(It also helps to get married, or have kids, or a high maintenance girlfriend or boyfriend, or Harley)

Thanks  :up:

The "Most I Want" site links to GiveAway of the Day (GOTD). "Most I Want" does give some more information than GOTD.

Direct link to GiveAway of the Day (GOTD):

Giveaway of the Day (GOTD) is not as pretty as "Most I Want", but it has some interesting reviews/user comments of the software, as well as freeware alternatives.
Just be careful of occasional "bundle-ware" in the freeware alternatives mentioned in the User Comments section.


I use -= Folder =- too! (But with the spaces)

I've no idea when I started doing this (probably around the time WinXP came out and long filenames came in) but I find it makes my most important folders stand out and look jolly official!

I never thought of -= Folder =-, really interesting, I may try it instead of prefixing the File/Folder name with one or more underscores "_".

bumping to remind that Burning Studio 9 very much is worth $10  :up:
I'll second that, Ashampoo Burning Studio is probably their best program. :Thmbsup:

So many to chose from. I use FreeCommander a lot, even though I have a license for Total Commander.
I also use Windows Exploder, seem to have got used to it.

Hi there,
This is on special again today for $17.99 instead of $59.95. Has anyone tried it?

I got it, and it looks pretty good. I just had to configure ZoneAlarm Security Suite to stop warning me about programs adding themselves to Windows startup.

It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but I use Opera's built-in torrent download handling.
