Light Table Portable, a new kind of IDE!
"Light Table describes itself as “the next generation code editor”. It aims to provide a flexible interface, real-time evaluation, live visualization and documentation where you need it. ...it’s an interesting project with a radical approach. It’s lightweight and fast on modest hardware but you’ll need to invest time learning how to use and configure the editor. Few of us have the patience but I suspect it could gain an underground Vim-like quasi-religious following." —Craig Buckler, sitepoint.com (September 03, 2014)
"Even though the light table demo looks interesting at first glance, digging deep into it, some of the concepts presented as game changing like ‘documentation everywhere’ and ‘find function’ are already well implemented in other IDEs." —Prashant Deva, chrononsystems.com (April 22, 2012)
"The cool thing with Light Table is that it seems to use OpenGL for displaying code. ...how to say… there is a small but visible delay like in many OpenGL apps." —JeGX, Geeks3D.com (2014/11/21)
Light Table is a next generation code editor that connects you to your creation with instant feedback. Light Table is very customizable and can display anything a Chromium browser can.

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.

Far Manager Portable, file and archive manager!
"Far manager is very convenient file manager that doesn't possess with such big bunch of features as for example Total Commander but its simplicity and speed really impressed me." —Jimmy_Cl (a user), download.CNET.com (October 19, 2006)
"...Far Manager proves to be one of the best orthodox file managers on the market. It moves fast and integrates powerful features on the list. What it lacks can be supplemented with the aid of plugins and macros." —Ana Marculescu, Softpedia.com (September 2nd, 2014 15:31 GMT)
"FAR Manager is not for the beginner. It is geared toward those familiar with the old command line way of working with a computer--a nostalgic trip back to the early 90s. With that said, the advanced user can figure out the ins and outs of this program with a little guidance, and it could save the day if files are otherwise inaccessible." —Download.com staff (September 2nd, 2014 15:31 GMT)
Far Manager is a "Norton Commander"-like program for managing files and archives in Windows operating systems.
