HxD (Freeware Hex Editor & Disk Editor)

HxD - Freeware Hex Editor and Disk Editor
this is a great program to be added to portable apps platform

HxD is free of charge for private and commercial use. Selling HxD is not allowed.
Distributing it as part of magazine addon CDs / DVDs / other media or putting it on download portals or private websites is allowed and welcome

HxD is a carefully designed and fast hex editor which, additionally to raw disk editing and modifying of main memory (RAM), handles files of any size.

The easy to use interface offers features such as searching and replacing, exporting, checksums/digests, insertion of byte patterns, a file shredder, concatenation or splitting of files, statistics and much more.

Editing works like in a text editor with a focus on a simple and task-oriented operation, as such functions were streamlined to hide differences that are purely technical.
For example, drives and memory are presented similar to a file and are shown as a whole, in contrast to a sector/region-limited view that cuts off data which potentially belongs together. Drives and memory can be edited the same way as a regular file including support for undo. In addition memory-sections define a foldable region and inaccessible sections are hidden by default.

Furthermore a lot of effort was put into making operations fast and efficient, instead of forcing you to use specialized functions for technical reasons or arbitrarily limiting file sizes. This includes a responsive interface and progress indicators for lengthy operations.

I guess they already have one hex editor, but this one seems to be one of the more popular ones.

HxD is already portable, actually

Just choose the portable one instead of installable version before downloading.
