  • The PA.c Launcher generator is now packed with NSIS Portable (Unicode) 2.46 Rev 2, so you don't need separate NSIS portable.

FlowHeater Designer Portable, The Data Import/Export Specialist!
"But FlowHeater goes a lot further than just moving data from one format to another; it can also transform the data along the way. Each data format, whether for input or output, is handled by an “adapter” and adapters can be graphically wired together either directly or via “functions”, otherwise called “heaters” (the software is described using a weird water heater metaphor)." —Mark Gibbs, (MAY 16, 2014 7:14 PM PT)
"FlowHeater is an amazing envisaged or structured data conversion software that will help you save a lot of time and the stress of formatting and recovering data. ... I love the software because of its instinctual conversion interface and file format support." —Rahul Gupta, (Jul 30, 2016)
"To convert data between different file formats and database systems in FlowHeater, you do not necessarily need to be a database or scripting expert. Conversion parameters are set in a graphical graphical environment where visualization connects the data source to the destination database..." —
FlowHeater is a powerful tool for connecting widely differing data sources and targets using a flexible graphically defined conversion. CSV (text) import/export becomes child’s play.
   Adapters are available for import/export/update of MS Access, MS Excel, MS SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite, PostgreSQL, Oracle, OleDB and ODBC data sources as well as text formats (CSV, TXT, ASC, ASCII, Flat File...). The individual adapters can be used in any combination with one another.

The configuring of it is not difficult, so I can recommend it for web developers’ use." —Igor Savinkin, (Apr 22, 2013)
"Fiddler is an excellent choice for testing and diagnosing web applications and websites. It offers am impressive quantity of information regarding HTTP traffic and is able to sniff data from any platform that features proxy support." —Andreea Matei, (March 23rd, 2015)
Fiddler captures HTTP and HTTPS traffic and logs it for the user to review.

"Formerly known as CloudAlpaca, the program allows registered users access to its Cloud service, thus enabling one to disseminate the cartoons quickly." —Mircea Saveanu,

There's also strong support for collaborating with others, forming groups with other users, working on the same files, and sharing custom tones, brushes and more." —Mike Williams, (29 Sep 2016)

Vivaldi Portable
"But Vivaldi does seem to combine a fresh new look with an impressively old-school appeal to the power user, and it may well find its niche." —David Meyer, (Jan. 27, 2015 - 1:00 AM PST)
"Named after the 18th century composer Antonio Vivaldi, the name carries an inescapable reference to von Tetzchner's previous role as co-founder and long-time head of browser and mobile phone technology firm Opera Software." —Joachim Dagenborg, (Tue Jan 27, 2015 4:15am EST)
"Hot on the heels of Microsoft announcing its newest browser, Project Spartan, we’ve got another brand new contender in the browser wars: Vivaldi." —Owen Wiliams, (Jan 21, 2015)
FROM THE DEVELOPER: In 1994, two programmers started working on a web browser. Our idea was to make a really fast browser, capable of running on limited hardware, keeping in mind that users are individuals with their own requirements and wishes. Opera was born.
   Our little piece of software gained traction, our group grew and a community was created. We stayed close to our users and to our roots. We kept improving our software, based on our users feedback, as well as our own ideas on how to make a great browser. We innovated and we strove for excellence.
   Fast forward to 2015, the browser we once loved has changed its direction. Sadly, it is no longer serving its community of users and contributors who helped build the browser in the first place.
We must make a new browser. A browser for ourselves and a browser for our friends. A browser that is fast, but also a browser that is rich in functionality, highly flexible and puts the user first. A browser that is made for you.
