"If you're looking for a tool to keep all your writing, bookmarks, documents, and much more in one place, Evernote is a great tool to consider. Instead of jumping between apps, you can do it all in one place—and be sure you never forget anything." —Vicky Cassidy, Zapier.com (September 16, 2015)
"So, if you want to give Evernote another shot, try putting everything in it that you want to hang onto. The more you add, the more useful Evernote becomes. " —Whitson Gordon, lifehacker.com (3/12/13 9:00am)
"You can bend Evernote to your will and use it for practically anything, from recording meetings to marking up PDFs to keeping a daily diary. Evernote remains an essential tool for the modern age, though the company has been criticized a bit for rolling out too many features without making sure existing ones work flawlessly. " — Jill Duffy, PCMag.com (November 06, 2015)

Mattermost Portable, Modern communication, behind your firewall!
"Will Slack users miss anything when they migrate to Mattermost? ... In general, proprietary SaaS apps don't let you migrate—so what your users will miss most is access to their own data, which will be paywalled from you." —Ian Tien (Co-creator of Mattermost), Quora.com (Jul 9, 2015)
"That it is self-hosted, you may use it within your organization. That's the reason we made the decision to go with Mattermost. Also the IRC integration gateway, which is utilized about 50/50 in this use case." —Consultant in Information Technology and Services, G2Crowd.com (March 11, 2016)
"Slack’s growth has shown that even seemingly ancient technologies like chat can still be improved, particularly when it comes to using instant messaging for work. But Slack has the limitations that all proprietary cloud apps do. Your data lives on someone else’s servers. Customization is limited. You have to trust that Slack the company will make the changes you want to Slack the app and not make changes you don’t want." —Klint Finley, wired.com (03.16.16, 7:00 am)
Mattermost is an open source, self-hosted Slack-alternative. As an alternative to proprietary SaaS messaging, Mattermost brings all your team communication into one place, making it searchable and accessible anywhere.

µTorrent Portable, bittorrent downloads to go
"Fast and reliable downloads are the most important aspects of torrenting, and uTorrent certainly excels at achieving these two characteristics." —Download.com staff, Yahoo! News, September 14, 2014.
"Small, light, free." —Stuart (a user), FreewareFiles.com, 30-09-2013.
"A really nice torrent client, small and light-weight, very reliable, will run for weeks without issues. Only problem is that I still see ads sometimes in my paid ad-free subscription, which the company has not responded to. That gets it 4/5 instead 5/5 stars. " —DevoreSekk (a user), download.CNET.com (March 24, 2016)
µTorrent is the world's most popular BitTorrent client. Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet).

Tablacus Explorer Portable, a tabbed file manager with Add-on support!
"Tablacus Explorer is fine for simple tabbed browsing, but a horrible configuration interface and total lack of documentation mean its more advanced features are very hard to figure out." —Mike Williams, PCAdvisor.co.uk (22 Aug 2016)
"Tablacus Explorer moves quite fast without eating up too much CPU and memory. The multi-tabbed environment is clearly one of its strongest advantages, as you don’t need to keep different Windows Explorer panels opened. ... The configuration settings are still hard to tweak even with the online tips, so less experienced users are likely to spend extra time trying to decode their meaning." —Ana Marculescu, Softpedia.com (February 24th, 2015 16:31 GMT)
"It is better than window explorer. Easy to use. Interface divisible in 2 or 3 or 4 part to browse better among folders." —capitanflorius (a user), download.CNET.com (February 13, 2013)
Tablacus Explorer is a tabbed file manager. It includes extensibility add-ons, customizable association, menus, keys, mouse gestures, and alias. You can save the configuration to XML. It supports multiple language and Unicode.

NAPS2 (Not Another PDF Scanner 2) Portable, scan documents to PDF and other file types, as simply as possible!
"Not Another PDF Scanner 2 is a handy scanning tool for Windows that is easy to use but still powerful enough to handle light to moderate scan jobs." —Martin Brinkmann, ghacks.net (May 10, 2015)
"Simple et efficace. Bravo." —pseudoremi (a user), sourceforge.net
"There are some good features in NAPS2 like unlimited page scanning, duplexing, and will do color, and will scan in OCR (or so it says, didn't try that one). However, their are some downfalls too. They need to take a lesson from paperscanfree Edition 1.5.5.3. It also does color, but when you select Acquire, it lets you scan from the glass, or document feeder. You do not have to go change your profile every time you get ready to scan something. Moreover, it has many other tools on the tool bar. For instance it will let you crop from the tool bar, and you can print without saving, or you can save it to the exact place you want. I think if NAPS2 would add the good features of PaperScanFreeEdition, I would rate them excellent." —nevergetany (a user), sourceforge.net
NAPS2 is a document scanning application with a focus on simplicity and ease of use. Scan your documents from WIA- and TWAIN-compatible scanners, organize the pages as you like, and save them as PDF, TIFF, JPEG, PNG, and other file formats. Requires .NET Framework 4.0 (or offline) or higher (4.6.1 offline).
   NAPS2 is currently available in 20 different languages. Want to see NAPS2 in your preferred language? Help translate! See the wiki for more details.

"Better alternative to uTorrent." —Ness8469 (a user), Softonic.com
"...interesting for users who are looking for a client that is respecting user privacy. ...The only real issue that I experienced was with the slow loading add button interface." —Martin Brinkmann, ghacks.net (December 2, 2012)

Sublime Text Portable, the text editor you'll fall in love with!
"Sublime Text has a minimap on the side that provides a top-down view of the file and keyboard shortcuts for most actions. It's also supports a large number of languages and general text editing features out of the box." —slant.co (May 25, 2016)
"One of my colleague recommend sublime to me about 6 months back and I can't imagine working without it now. It's the best. From a simple text editor to an IDE for any kids of code that you are writing ( C++, Java, Apex) it handles it all. It is very lightweight and I have never seen it crash till now. The default color coding of the text is very good..." —Rinku D., G2Crowd.com (October 08, 2015)
"Regardless of what you choose I decided to go back to Sublime. I urge everyone to find the editor you like the most and stick with it. It’s nice that Atom is Open Source and I’m sure it will become even more amazing as time passes; I don’t see it fading away any time soon. I will however keep a close eye on Atom, but I’ve decided to stick it out with Sublime. So in the end when it came down to Atom or Sublime…well…Sublime FTW!" —Dennis Gaebel, WDW/web-design-weekly.com (JULY 30, 2015)
Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code, markup and prose. You'll love the slick user interface, extraordinary features and amazing performance.

Chromium Portable, lightweight (cognitively and physically) and fast browser!
"Chrome is viewed by many to have a reputation for security, but a lot of security experts actually take the view that Chromium is superior in this respect... 'Chrome's code has to be able to tie into Flash Player, for instance,'... 'So more code is involved to integrate with other third-party products. This all introduces more complexities and more code paths.'" —Jack M. Germain, LinuxInsider.com (Nov 26, 2013 5:00 AM PT)
Chromium is the open-source web browser project from which Google Chrome draws its source code. The browsers share the majority of code and features, though there are some minor differences in features and they have different licensing.

Yandex Browser Portable, secure and anonymous browser!
"Yandex is a handsome and fast browser. But it is too much like Chrome for my comfort. Moreover, it localizes most of its functionality, taking away some of its international charm. Stands to reason, when you think about it, as you end up with Yandex + Yandex versus Google + Google Chrome using pretty much the same technology, and this is what the Russian market needs. However, for anyone outside Russia, the combination of language searches, translations and suggestions might be too much." —dedoimedo.com (April 27, 2013)
"But all in all, the browser seems to be good to go as an option for daily internet activities. Its additional features include mouse gestures, notifications from Facebook and Twitter, document/e-book viewer, safe browsing, and webpage translator, which puts it on par with today’s alternatives." —Andrii Degeler theNextWeb.com (27 Nov '14, 06:55pm)
"Design wise, Yandex’s concept browser borrows heavily from Microsoft’s Windows 8 redesign, from two years ago." —Natasha Lomas (@riptari), techcrunch.com (Nov 28, 2014)
Yandex Browser, stylized as Yandex.Browser, (Russian: Яндекс.Браузер) is a freeware web browser developed by the Russian web search corporation Yandex that uses the Blink layout engine and is based on the Chromium open source project.
