Legitimate portable versions for desktop apps!
It seems that the idea of carrying personal data and applications with you on a USB stick is rather obsolete. You might be right. Today, when almost everything seems to be synced with one cloud account or another and free applications are readily downloadable or can run in an incognito browser window, there's little need for such impractical...

Slow, steady, and rather pointless
It's the current year. Looking back in time to the first attempts at Internet peer-to-peer file sharing systems like the old Napster or eDonkey, we can only marvel at the grandiose advancement that BitTorrent represents. And using Shareaza will make you appreciate torrents even more.
Don't get your hopes up. Shareaza is not a lightning fast... Read full review
Would you like some episode titles with your torrent file, sir?
TV show bingers and BitTorrent aficionados will love this one. Filebot is a godsend when you're dealing with poorly titled video files, missing subtitles or both. Filebot works in close conjunctions with a couple of sites, one of which is OpenSubtitles.org. Creating an account on OpenSubtitles is highly recommended.
The primary function of... Read full review
Torrent alternative for lazy bums
Traditionally, a BitTorrent user would need to have two things: a BitTorrent client and a favorite torrent site. The latter are beginning to phase out, as more clients tend to feature their own search engines. qBittorrent is such a client.
At a glance, qBittorrent has a very friendly interface. The main toolbar features big buttons that deal... Read full review
Classic or Modern?
While still looking for an alternative to FileZilla, WinSCP appeared to be shinier. Of course, you can't have much to improve when the main function is to transfer files, but some small features may go a long way in helping you accomplish this with ease.
WinSCP greets you with the option of running it in two modes. You can choose the rather... Read full review
What? A Kaiju?!
There are plenty of options to choose from when you want to connect to a FTP server. Your browser can do it, your file manager can do it. Heck, even your grandma can do it nowadays. But in case file transfers aren't just something you do once per year, you might need some extra support and functionality. FileZilla can provide that.

A cozy hub
There's something about IRC that I find endearing. Maybe it's because of anonymity, or maybe because it represents one of my first encounters with the Internet. ASL PLS and all that. Ares however is not about chatting, but about file sharing. Well, maybe it's both.
Here we mainly have a peer-to-peer Bit Torrent application. That means you can... Read full review

The Ultimate Experience
Opera is back. And is more alluring than ever. In the current sociopolitical climate the vikings at Opera ASA have thought out a wonderful solution for those who need to keep their convictions as private as possible. It's called Free VPN! Not only that, but the new Opera also comes with increased functionality and care for ergonomics.
I know... Read full review
I am sorry to disappoint, but there absolutely nothing to report here. Nothing except that this obscure app seems to refuse to work.
The original description suggests that Biometric Fingerprint Attendance System is a graphical user interface to be used with biometric scanning tools. Which tools, I do not know. The main problem is that without... Read full review
