Transmission Portable, a fast, easy, and free BitTorrent client!
"That does not necessarily mean that the program is inferior. It all depends on what you want to use the program for. If you only want to download files then Transmission-QT is a perfectly fine choice. ... It needs to be noted that Transmission-QT supports loading an IP blocklist while uTorrent does not. Some users at least will like the program's simplicity and pick it because of that. " —Martin Brinkmann, ghacks.net (October 6, 2011)
"The program finishes a downloading task quickly while using low CPU and RAM. We haven't come across any stability issues in our tests, and the tool did not hang or crash. In conclusion, Transmission-Qt proves to be a reliable tool for downloading torrent files rapidly, which integrates a few useful features for all user levels." —Elena Opris, Softpedia.com (November 25th, 2015)
Transmission-Qt Win is an unofficial Windows build of Transmission which features a simple interface on top of the cross-platform back-end.

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.

Universal Extractor Portable, decompress and extract files from any type of archive or installer!
"With support for almost any archive file out there, this app makes all others redundant—but its lack of support and inability to make archives hold it back." —Mark O'Neill, PCWorld.com (Aug 5, 2013 10:00 AM)
"...this program supports using a password list for secured archives. This function might come in handy if you need to decompress a large number of compressed items that are locked with different passwords." —Vlad Constantinescu, Softpedia.com (Jul 11, 2016)
"...you may run the program in batch mode. This enables you to use it to extract multiple archives or installer files in one go. ... Its author added support for "dozens of extractors" that expand the range of supported file types, and added an option to extract multimedia files directly as well to gain access to audio or video tracks directly." —Martin Brinkmann, ghacks.net (February 6, 2016)
Universal Extractor 2 is an unofficial updated and extended version of the original UniExtract by Jared Breland. It brings several hundred changes including community-wanted ones such as a batch mode, auto-updater and scan-only-functionality.

Radical Image Optimization Tool (RIOT) Portable, a free program designed to efficiently optimize images for the Web!
"Well what do you know, we made it through the RIOT alive! Wasn’t that hard right? I highly recommend trying it out. It’s excellent for optimizing images for the web or just for personal use. Try it and let us know what you think!" —Aaron Couch, MakeUseof.com (October 20, 2012)
"During our tests we managed to trim off about 80% of a picture’s size and the end result showed no visible drop in quality. To make things even clearer, the original file was 3.22MB in size and after compression it shrunk to 605KB, and they looked identical to the naked eye; of course, zooming in to pixel level would reveal the difference." —Ionut Ilascu, Softpedia.com (August 19th, 2011 14:34 GMT)
"The program's interface is plain and not particularly attractive, but it is intuitive and easy to navigate." —Download.com staff, download.CNET.com (July 21, 2010)
