Re: blog: rinse filenames

Once upon a time there were strict rules about filenames, only a few characters were allowed (nevermind the 8.3 letter limitation).

Re: blog: stop IE launching Edge browser

Honestly, if you want to have a secure web browser, NetSurf might be for you: http://www.netsurf-browser.org (I would probably use it as my main browser if their HTML5 support was finished. Waiting... waiting...) The new Edge with its Chrome codebase is ridiculous and I fail to understand why anyone...

Re: xplorer2 v4.4 released

From the RSS feed: xplorer² v4.4 has come out of testing and is ready for prime time and coronavirus-free . Let's wait 14 days, shall we? you may see warnings like "this file isn't frequently downloaded..." but don't worry about it, it is the same good old xplorer2! Wait: xplorer2 is frequently down...

Re: xplorer2 4308 beta

I find the implication that a folder exists if its existence equals a negative number relatively confusing.

Re: xplorer2 v4207 beta

1) Much less power draw on machines, particularly OLED screens where the pixels for black objects are actually just off. See https://gizmodo.com/why-is-oled-different-and-what-makes-it-so-great-1654102034 Do you use xplorer² on an OLED screen? Does anyone? There is a very real medical need by some ...

Re: xplorer2 v4207 beta

can you think of any regexp rename scenario that cannot be handled? Not really. I tried all edge cases, including target file names which already existed and conditional positive look-aheads. The only thing that is missing is a more useful error display than "check the highlighted files" - because ...

Re: xplorer2 v4207 beta

I tested the regex multi-rename with sufficiently complex expressions and it seems to work. Sad. I cannot complain!

Re: blog: what is this ultimate edition anyway?

why xplorer² ultimate costs more than professional edition Aren't they just #ifdef s anyway? Because if they are, this makes no sense. :wink: (if in a hurry just watch the demo videos ) I, personally, read faster than I watch those videos.
