This is what happens when I enabled the seemingly useless transparency grid.

The second one is what I see (:KWL)

Hm, I was talking about transparency in e.g. text boxes produced with a program like OOo Writer, or AbiWord. Unlike Foxit, PDF-XChange Viewer (and Adobloate of course) displays them correctly.

That's good then, right?  Transparency layers...seems stylish.  I'll take your word and stick with PDF-XChange Viewer.

That's a good choice! Maybe I'll even give it a second chance. Being portable I guess it can't bloat my nano fresh (trying to illustrate complete pureness and perfection here) system...

You forgot the adjective: functional computer

There are limits to deleting things just because they stick out like a sore cactus

If you're concerned about vulnerabilities, good luck.

I finally switched to a portable browser. :-TU

7-Zip
Adobe Reader Lite
Bryce
CCleaner P
CFP
DC++ P
Diino P
GIMP
InfraRecorder P
Internet Explorer
JkDefrag P
Media Player Classic P
Mozilla Firefox P
NT Registry Optimizer P
OpenOffice.org
PDF Split and Merge P
PDFCreator
RegSeeker P

I also think Bryce is close to being portable, since I've deleted the uninstaller (it bloated my Windows-folder with an exe file >:() and I don't think it writes any registry entries (I may be wrong - then it's not really portable). It should work to just have the folder as it is, and two DLL files put in system32. Maybe the last one is a criterion for Bryce not being portable.

I'd love to use OOo and GIMP portable, but they come from portableapps.com - which add their own splash screen, at least when I tried GIMP. I don't like such things. Oh wait, they are both open source, I could fix it myself!! Or maybe not... :'(

You can't block it with CFP 3 ?  ;D What's better ? A little splash screen or a bloat in registry entries ?  ;D
I don't like splash screens either, but I can make exceptions if I benefit from it  ;D I have one splash screen (appears on the lower left corner of the screen) in MS Office 2007  :)

The splash screen is unacceptable since it reminds me of adware, so I prefer a few registry entries. It's not the end of the world. OOo and GIMP are really, really decent programs from the registry's point of view, it's a completely different thing with e.g. AutoCAD and M$ .NET Framework... and Adobe products... my lord, they bloat the registry like nothing else (well maybe Norton is just as bad ;D).

Yes, but it's Comodo's own splash screen, which is alright. I like splash screens (I've even re-enabled the splash screen in Adobe Reader, which is automatically disabled after the first launch), they ensure me that the program is starting / loading plugins / whatever, but they should only contain info from the original authour! :-TU

Why don't you MAKE it portable by REMOVING all registry keys relating to Bryce ;D
