We're close, for now...we hope ;)
We decide to stop our work on thumbapps.org...
   As you've all been reading on the side bar these past 6 months, this enterprise can't really pay for itself—let alone for us (me the poor developer and my beloved folks).
   We need time to regroup to think out ways to resume thumbapps.org or do something else that might be more profitable. (Let's hope that silly double negative in the title will do wonders and actually make this closing just another April fool :)
   Ok, now...
   We will release our last custom PortableApps.com Development Suite in the coming days or weeks to let you do your own DIY upgrade.
   We might update some of our release in the future—cause we need/use it anyway—but it won't closely follow the official software update release. (But don't hold your breath... :)
   As the Messenger [sas] said centuries ago, "If you slaughter, make it sharp and quick," and so... that's it![]

PS. I you want to comment you can do it on one of our social media...

OBS (Open Broadcaster Software Classic/Studio) Portable, free, open source software for live streaming and recording!
"Video streaming apps are often expensive, not very good, or both expensive and not very good. Enter Open Broadcaster Software, a free, open-source solution which is super lightweight, includes many of the same options as software you can buy, and so far works beautifully for streaming games on Twitch.tv." —Tyler Wilde, PCGamer.com (Dec 4, 2012)
"Overall I've been very happy with OBS. The product works just like you'd expect, has pretty decent documentation (something that you usually do NOT see with open source projects) and has allowed me to do all of the things that I couldn't do with CamStudio, while retaining almost all of things that CamStudio could do." —Logan, loganslearnings.blogspot.com (May 2013)
"It's great for recording video from games." —Andrei David, PerfectGeeks.com
Open Broadcaster Software is a free and open source software for video recording and live streaming.

Atom Portable, a hackable text editor for the 21st Century!
"I came to Atom with a prejudice… the reported slowness and memory hungriness, made me to hesitate to try it… ... That’s the problem with information found on Internet: it quickly becomes stale… ... The minor issues mentioned above doesn’t prevent from using it: the good parts currently balance the bad ones. I will still recommend it. :-)" —Philippe Lhoste, philhosoft.github.io (2015-12-15)
"...overall editor performance has improved drastically over the past year, but it still lags behind other editors." —Clifford Fajardo, cliffordfajardo.com (January 24, 2016)
"Bad jokes aside, I was immediately struck by its insane slowness. For a text editor, it really takes a long time to launch! ... Aside from its slowness, and the fact that it eats RAM like an IDE, Atom is really a nice text editor. ... Atom seems to be what I want Emacs to be 1: an editor that’s extensible, mode-less and actively developed even though it is, sadly, just as heavy." —Lorenzo Villani, lorenzo.villani.me (06 Sep 2015)
Atom is a text editor that was originally conceived at GitHub as a way to combine the visual appeal of editors like Sublime Text with the extensibility and programmability of Emacs or Eclipse.

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.

Auslogics Disk Defrag Portable, Best Free Defrag Software For Your Hard Drive!
"If you're happy with Windows' built-in defragger, you won't need this program. But if you want more control over defragging and the ability to move system files to the beginning of your hard disk to speed up access, the free Auslogics Disk Defrag is well worth the download." —Preston Gralla, PCWorld.com (Jun 7, 2011 12:00 AM)
"A few months ago, we ran a number of Product Spotlight pieces on disk defrag tools, and one consistency is that for each article we published, many readers kept talking about Auslogics Disk Defrag. It is really unusual to see that many people saying such nice things about a product, so we decided to give it a look, and the praise is justified!" —Justin James, TechRepublic.com (February 21, 2010, 11:59 PM PST)
"Disk Degfrag from Auslogics goes a little further than simple disk defragmentation. The app will also optimize your file system for faster file reads and writes, show you a list of fragmented files instead of a vague report of your hard drive's fragmentation status, and will even defragment single files and folders if you're having a hard time with a specific file or application." —Alan Henry, LifeHacker.com (10/30/11 8:00am)
Auslogics Disk Defrag Free is a compact and fast defragmenter with over 11,000,000 users worldwide. It will improve your PC's performance by defragmenting and re-arranging files on your disk.

Google Chrome Portable, browse with speed, simplicity and style
It won't crash... It's really fast. —J. R. Raphael, PCWorld.com, Sep 2, 2008.
Chrome is not just the cure for slow browsing. It has a number of other key features to recommend it, including excellent HTML standards compliance, its own copy of Flash, its own PDF viewer, automatic updating, synchronization across computers, incognito viewing, and many extensions. —Martin Heller, InfoWorld.com, Feb 19, 2014.

"Free Any Burn is very low-demanding when it comes to the CPU and system memory, has a good response time and carries out a task in reasonable time." —Elena Opris, Softpedia.com
"Free AnyBurn can't create video DVDs. It's free, portable, and seems to deliver the burning basics very well, though, and if that sounds appealing then we'd recommend you give it a try." —Mike Williams, PCAdvisor.co.uk (19 Aug 15)

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.

"Overall, Cyberduck 4 is fast, featureful, and friendly. And though you can use it for free if you download it from the developer’s site, it’s well worth it to donate some money, if only to keep such a great FTP client available to all." — Dan Moren, Macworld.com (17 Jun 11)
