Poor man's view of the world

Before you get the wrong idea, I am referring to my USB stick (or "pen drive" in common parlance 😉 Its quite convenient to carry your data on a portable drive (pen drive / portable hard disk). Its even better when you can carry your apps with you.

This is a list of apps that I carry on my USB stick:

1. Firefox browser with the following extensions -

  • NetcraftToolBar for blocking phishing sites
  • ShowIP for whois
  • PhProxy
  • Shazou for one click geo-location of websites
  • Temporary Inbox for creating random email IDs for online registration
  • X-Ray for analyzing web page source code
  • Gspace to use Gmail space for online storage
  • FireFTP for accessing FTP servers

2. Mozilla Thunderbird email client

3. Open Office for viewing / editing / creating docs, ppts, xls files etc

4. Foxit PDF Reader

5. PeaZip archive manager

6. CurrPorts process viewer

7. PC Inspector File Recovery software

8. Faronics System Profiler

The above are free to download and use. There are also some excellent "paid" apps that I have on my stick. These are X-ways Forensics, X-ways Trace and Elcomsoft office and archive password recovery software.
