  • What is this? - this was a project dedicated to building an up-to-date collection of great, free portable software for easy installation and use.
  • What's in it? - list of included freeware
  • v. 1.3 beta - note that this release is over a year old and contains very out-of-date software. I haven't worked out how to solve licensing issues. Download

Changes to Firefox - Secure

Still considering adding WoT (Web of Trust), but for right now here are some updates:
  • Set the homepage to Scroogle (https://ssl.scroogle.org/) ... not as pretty, but much more secure.
  • Added firefox plugins:
    • Locationbar2 - really simple anti-phishing trick
    • BetterPrivacy - an advanced cookie cleaner
    • Panic Button - quickly minimize firefox to help prevent shoulder-surfing.  Set the icon to something that looks like a minimize button, which seemed to make more sense.
  • For simplicity, I put up the "temporarily allow this page" button up for the NoScript plugin.  This allows users to -- if they decide they trust a page -- to allow the website to fully render.
  • Just for consistency put the Adblock Plus (for disabling ads) and TorButton (for anonymous browsing) in the top bar as well.
