Undiscovered Freeware?

I am currently undergoing a process of - as far as at all possible - replacing payware with freeware on my PCs.
Here are some interesting tools I found while scouring the web for freeware:

Process Lasso


Process Lasso is a unique new technology intended to automatically adjust the allocation of CPU cycles so that system responsiveness is improved in high-load situations. It does this by dynamically temporarily lowering the priorities of processes that are consuming too many CPU cycles, there-by giving other processes a chance to run if they are in need. This is useful for both single and multi-core processors. No longer will a single process be able to bring your system to a virtual stall.
In addition, Process Lasso offers capabilities such as default process priorities, default process CPU affinities, termination of disallowed processes, and logging of processes executed. With Process Lasso you essentially create rules to manage processes running on your system.




Fiddler is a HTTP Debugging Proxy which logs all HTTP traffic between your computer and the Internet. Fiddler allows you to inspect all HTTP Traffic, set breakpoints, and "fiddle" with incoming or outgoing data. Fiddler includes a powerful event-based scripting subsystem, and can be extended using any .NET language.
Fiddler is freeware and can debug traffic from virtually any application, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and thousands more.


The NirSoft web site provides a unique collection of small and useful freeware utilities:


TextSTAT - Simple Text Analysis Tool


TextSTAT is a simple program for the analysis of texts. It reads ASCII/ANSI texts (in different encodings) and HTML files (directly from the internet) and it produces word frequency lists and concordances from these files. This version includes a web-spider which reads as many pages as you want from a particular website and puts them in a TextSTAT-corpus. The new news-reader puts news messages in a TextSTAT-readable corpus file.




CrossLoop simplifies the process of securely working with friends located in different physical locations and across different network environments. CrossLoop enables you to see the screen and control the mouse and keyboard on a remote computer. It is as if you are working side by side at the same PC.

Thanks for the info, it's really useful for most of us.
Remember to put between quotes the text you copy from another site. I did it for you today, remember to do this everytime you write down an info directly copied from somebody else. [/note]

Didn't know any of these sites before, thanks for sharing ;) . I've switched from payware to freeware a few years ago and I must say I haven't had any problems since. Of course you've got to get used to the new software, but once you know them you sometimes don't want to switch back to the payed alternatives (mostly because the payed alternative don't offer anything more than the freeware).

I never heard about Process Lasso or software like that on windows, it brought my attention.. I'll try to use it and maybe I'll feel that it isn't one of those programs which aren't relevant for anything, except is using space on my hdd. :)
