This week, in our Freeware Page , we have added a short review about QuotePad which is a very interesting notepad that can be used to better organizing your online day by day work especially when in internet. In particular this light freeware allows you also to copy and paste large amounts of texts from web-pages and automatically recording the web-address. After coping the text you have only to go into your QuotePad and paste it using Ctr-Shift-Q. QuotePad directly memorizes the time of your “cut and paste” and allows you to write the most appropriate title for each of your notes. Moreover, clicking on “stay on top” (on the right in the upper bar) you can also stitch your notes above the browser you are using. Recommended.
Today, in our Freeware Page, we posted some useful links to three different portable versions of Skype. In few lines we describe two classical (old but till succesfully used) versions with all the links to better understand how they work and where it is possible to download them.
Last but not least, we write about the new Portable Skype 3 which recently has released on the web and we put a link where it is possible to download this new fantastic freeware. This new version not only is the best I’ve never used but it is also the simpliest I’ve never installed on a USB. Skype Time!
This week we have tested IZArc in our freeware page. IZArc is a terrific freeware to manage many (perhaps I should say: “All”) different formats of archive. IZArc has a very clean interface and in few minutes (after few tests) you are able to use all its features. Using IZArc you can also have a quick look in ISO archives before burning them and directly scan them using your favourite anti-virus. I hope that IZArc developers would create a Linux version in the future because this freeware is really one of the most useful and tiny software I discovered in last months (now it is possible to use IZArc in Linux through Wine). In our Linux page we posted a review about LiveLook, a multiplatform (Linux, MAC OS X, Windows) on-line service to remote control your computers. Unfortunately this web based service will be free for just few more weeks but for the moment it works greatly.
Super Grub is a very practical and useful free bootable cd which can be very useful when you need to solve boot problems in Linux, Windows and other OS Independent. In our Linux page, Frank wrote a descriptive post about the many features you can find (and effectively use) in this terrific bootable cd. Super Grub is very light (just 1.45 MB of cdrom .iso), supports seven different languages and can be downloaded also in its floppy disk version.
Today, in our freeware page, we have posted some lines about converting DVD in PSP videos. The freeware conversion method we described is one of the easiest you can use (if not, please, let us know your favourite method). Anyway, after the installation of two strong freewares, AutoGK and 3GP Converter (both very simple and easy to use) you can watch the DVDs you bought on the PSP. The first time, you have to install and correctly configure these freewares (more or less you spend 30-40 minutes) but after that, all the conversion sessions will not be too long (if you are not a video quality “puritan”). Last but not least… be connected with us during the Christmas period… we are planning to post a special review for USB portable software (more precisely, freeware). Thanks to you all!
This week we posted an interesting review on Autopackage, perhaps the best program to install software in Linux. Autopackage is easy, fast and compatible with all the Linux versions. We think you all (not only the Linux beginners) will really appreciate this freeware. Please, let us know! We added also a short post about “Punto Informatico“, an Italian free newspaper which dedicates a huge section about freeware (and, of course, it is also possible to download all the freeware it talks about!!). See you next week!
