I think the free Foxit PDF Reader is super. I've used it for years and it's quite quick and compact... It runs circles around ultra-bloated Adobe Reader.

If you decide to try it, just be sure to pay attention and uncheck the adware options when you install it—then everything should be fine!

Plain text files are tremendously useful... I never did understand why people felt they needed fancy word processors to keep notes and lists of stuff.

Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I also use a text editor for composing email replies (I don't trust online editors).

For freeware editors, I can personally recommend Notepad++ and PSPad. And RJ TextEd is also worth a look. All three include spell checkers, which not all text editors have—many being oriented toward programming.

This is an awesome app... Is its development pretty much dead now?

Dude (or dudette): How about including a version number with that DL link, just so people don't think an actual new Mobysaurus version has been released (which of course would be a ridiculous notion, but still)?

Gosh! I admire Skrommel's impressive app output, but frankly I find his/her 1 Hour Software page overwhelming.

Rather than presenting a flock of icons and unexplained app names, then requiring people to scroll down the l-o-n-g!! webpage to see what on earth anything actually is, how about adding tooltips to the icons/links that show the descriptions when you point to 'em?

Maybe there are similar icon-'n'-undescribed-app-name pages on this site, too, that could benefit from this merciful extra bit of coding. Suggestively, A.
