NirSoft - Providing Unique Collection of Useful Freeware Utilities

NirSoft web site provides a unique collection of small and useful freeware utilities, all of them developed by Nir Sofer. I will add this on my Web watch list...

Nir Sofer, is  experienced developer with extensive knowledge in C++, .NET Framework, Windows API, and Reverse Engineering of undocumented binary formats and encryption algorithms.
NirSoft is a Web site of one man. In NirSoft, there is no CTO or CEO, there is no secretary, there is no development team, and there are no rented offices. The entire Web site and all the utilities that you can find here were developed by Nir Sofer. 

NirSoft  utilities receive  amazing awards such as  Editor's Pick of wareseeker.com ,  received 6 ducks award (the best) at NoNags Web site, has been reviewed by Home Computer Magazine , rated with 5 bulls by BullDownload, received the best award on softonic.com, has been awarded by Softpedia with 5 stars and SoftPedia Pick Award and many more..

Advantages of NirSoft utilities

For almost every utility that you can find here, there is probably others alternative tools with similar functionality. However, NirSoft utilities have some unique advantages over many other freeware and commercial products:
  • Most of the utilities in this site were developed in C++, which make them fast, small and effective.
  • My utilities are portable and mostly don't require any installation. While many software companies create a bloated installation package with size of 1 - 3 MB, the size of single utility in NirSoft is usually less than 100KB.
  •  All my utilities (except of a few very old tools) don't write anything to the Registry or to your profile folder. This means that you can use them from a USB Flash drive, without leaving traces in the computer that you use.
  • Most of my utilities can be used from command-line, without displaying any user interface.
  • You don't have to register or give your email in order to download from NirSoft.
  •  My utilities are completely freeware, without any catch.

Here's some examples of what you can find in NirSoft Web site:

My Top choices are WiFiInfoView , Icon Extract  and Password Recovery Tool.
