Cube, Opera, VLC, space mongler

For a game, Cube is a great open source doom clone. Bit big though, probably for ipods.

OperaUSB is already out (and ten megabytes smaller than firefox...), I'm not sure if this site will ever collaberate with that, but it is pretty cool, just not easy to find.

VLC is a media player

Space mongler is a classic utility that lets you see filesizes graphically

When did firefox go up in

When did firefox go up in size? Last I knew it was about 6 megs. And yes, OperaUSB is smaller (I think), but it's a matter of preferance, really.

Thouh I think we should have it, just for the sake of being complete.

PFF 1.5 is bigger

Portable Firefox is 8MB larger than it needs to be to keep compatibility with the Firefox auto-update system. Firefox's built-in updater applies binary patches to files, so you can download a quick 150K patch that gets automatically applied while you work VS a 6MB full download restart on the browser. The 8MB seemed like a god tradeoff for the functionality.

Zipped

I think richtopia meant when unzipped...

Portable FF is probably better anyway. Wink

So did I :-)

So did I. The 8MB is how much larger it is when unzipped. It's about the same size download.
