Yeah but this is a generic "helpful tools" list, so I don't think that market-domination should be a factor here.
Chromium, and open-source browsers based on it, are definitely "helpful tools" as long as they aren't a privacy risk for their users.
There isn't a problem with the Opera Browser. I myself, used it and I have to say that it's great. Even if it is a Chromium-Browser, nothings wrong with it. It also doesn't need to be Open-Source or Closed-Source. Besides, most Browsers are Closed-Source anyway.
And as @sn0w said, Market-Domination shouldn't be a Key-Factor here. I think we know that Google and Chromium is essentially controlling almost the entire Market but that doesn't mean that a Browser shouldn't be on the List.
I'd like to add some neat online tools that I frequently use:
CyberChef ~ The "Cyber Swiss Army Knife" for data analysis, encryption, encoding, and more cppinsights.io ~ Source-To-Source C++ Compiler that uncovers the hidden magic your compiler does godbolt.org ~ Compiler Explorer, compiles and then disassembles code for various native languages sharplab.io ~ Compiler Explorer for .NET languages (C#, F#, VB) regexper.com ~ Visualizes regular expressions as a graph
Thank you all for your contribution to this thread. I have created a Google form to help better manage your suggestions to add to the list, you can click https://forms.gle/kvTf8aZbvXjZFFjG7 to proceed to this form. However, you may continue to post suggestions here.
Anything before this posts will still be added, no need to resubmit into the form.
I disagree. I don't think there is anything wrong with using a Google service. We use Google services in our business because it's reliable/stable, cheap, high quality, and they do the job better than many other services. I've also used Google in school projects years ago, I still use Google services for personal projects, and I have never had any issues.
you don’t like google It's less about me not liking it. I think an important point here should also be clarification. It is important that you as a programmer are aware of the consequences of using xy. There are plenty of examples of a lack of digital conscience: through software...
I moved all of our discussions out of this thread as it merits its own thread.
Hey, good idea
I do plan on documenting it a bit more in the future, but for the time being I have produced a very fast paced tutorial video on how to use the tool with some basic information about each part. I will create a thread about it on CF & ping you there - I do not want to go off-topic or into too much detail about QueryPro in this thread here
in the meantime, you can watch the video here (I will post a thread later)
Coolors - an online generator for color palettes. It has quite a few pre-selected palettes that are popular, but you can generate new ones whenever you want. It is "smart" so it tries to pick darks, lights, mediums, etc. Sometimes the results are iffy, but I have used some of my favorite color schemes based on auto generated palettes from this site. It's a very nice tool for designers & developers
