Anytype is a very powerful local-first, P2P, open source note-taking and PKM (personal knowledge management) app that allows you to highly customize your information storage experience.

It is currently in beta, but very usable and fine-tuned already. I have used it for a couple of weeks now an build my PKM in it. It's lightning fast and very reliable. It syncs flawlessly between my computer and my phone.

To use it on other computers (work, travel) a portable app would be very nice as it has no web app.

Thorium - Chrome fork

Submitted by grunt on January 7, 2024 - 10:50pm

Thorium is a customized fork of Chrome that has special builds for different cpu architectures, it also has support for Windows 7 and a build for Windows XP in planned.

I find it amusing that that the author holds onto Windows 7 enough that he decided to build his own version of Chrome.

There was some controversial over some "easter eggs" that has since been removed. In all honestly they are quite amusing and pretty harmless.

Besides this, I think this might be an interesting project to watch.

It's light against Darktable: installer is 83.6 MB instead of 116.00 MB.
