Joplin has no learning curve. It's so well laid out that you can jump right in. Across the top, you can quickly create a new note, to-do or new notebook. You can toggle the sidebar on or off and even change the layout.

Like any good text editor, there are numerous options for the font including bold, italic, copy, paste, and more.

Best of all, while you can download the portable version and take it anywhere, you can also sync to your favorite cloud service including Dropbox and OneDrive.

Kindle Optimizer for Chrome [Size Varies] Win 7 - Win 10   Freeware

Kindle Optimizer adds instant Google search and functionality to your Kindle Cloud Reader. Kindle cloud reader is accessed via and does not require installation of the Kindle Reader app.

The Kindle Reader App for PC s such a great app that we read every day now. It's free and convenient, but like any app, it has some limitations in the features and how they work. We've always thought the built-in search and photos could use some work. Enter Kindle Optimizer.

Kindle Optimizer can help you search text from Kindle Cloud Reader in Google Search instantly, translate text from Kindle Cloud Reader in Google Translate and even copy text or pictures from Kindle Cloud Reader to a separate window.

BriskBard [48.5 MB] Win 7 - Win 10   Freeware

BriskBard is a fast web browser using Blink and Trident that also has security features and numerous tools including FTP, email, RSS, and more.

The interface is clean, fast, and easy to use. Easy to understand icons include menu, home, forward, backward, bookmarks, settings, and downloads. There are also icons next to the URL typing area for RSS feeds and to favorite the current page. The star icon stays the same color whether you bookmark it or not.

Bookmarks don't expand as you scroll but require clicking. A bunch of bookmarks is included, something we rarely like especially given that it didn't offer to import our bookmarks, a huge oversight. Speaking of which, we're also not sure why the bookmark icon is a lightning bolt.

Configuration offers a few unique options including configuration, print to PDF, clear private data, check for phishing threat, zoom, and more.

Clicking on the menu tab gives you access to many things you're not expecting including email, media player, FTP, telnet, whois, name resolver, and much more. Each one can be opened in their own tab allowing you to FTP, IRC, email, or even play your media all in separate tabs.

BriskBard isn't perfect, but we've never seen a browser that was. If you're looking for a fast web browser that integrates email, news, FTP, IRC, and more, then BriskBaird is hard to beat. We were impressed by how many tools are integrated into a web browser that's a smaller download than most media players.
