Rufus: Free Portable Utility to Write Bootable ISO or IMG Files to USB Drives

Creating a bootable USB drive might come very handy when you don't have access to CD/DVD drive in a computer system or don't have the setup disk to install Windows or a Linux distro in your PC.

You can create a bootable USB pen drive for Windows or Linux setup and then boot your system using it and then you can install the OS without any worries. It also makes the installation a little bit faster compared to installing via setup CD/DVD.

Creating bootable USB is not an easy task. You need to run some DOS commands and copy the setup files from your hard disk to USB stick. There are many free software available which allow you to automatically and quickly create bootable USB drives to install Windows and Linux which can be found at following link:

Today we are going to share another free tool "Rufus" which allows you to format and create bootable USB drives for Windows and Linux which might come handy in following situations:
  • Create USB installation media using bootable ISO or IMG image files (Windows, Linux, Android, etc.)
  • Need to work on a system that doesn't have an OS installed
  • Need to format a USB drive
  • Need to check your device for bad blocks
  • Need to flash a BIOS or other firmware from DOS
  • Want to run a low-level utility
Rufus is portable so you don't need to install it. Just run its EXE file and you are ready to create bootable USB drive. Its very small in size and you can carry it on your USB drive.
The most impressive thing about this tool is its interface. It looks very close to default format window which is shown by Windows whenever you try to format a hard disk partition or a USB drive.

Rufus: Free Portable Utility to Write Bootable ISO


The developer claims that Rufus is very fast compared to other free software available for the same task such as UNetbootin, Windows 7 USB download tool, etc.

Also once formatted using this tool, your USB drive is still usable as before to transfer data. It doesn't have to be dedicated for DOS or installation only.

This small utility also allows you to check the device for bad blocks. Up to 4 passes can be selected to find out if your device is defected.

This free utility can be used in Windows XP and all later Windows versions such as Windows Vista, 7, and 8. It can be used in both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions.

You can create bootable USB drive for Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and almost all popular Linux distro such as Fedora, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, OpenSuse, Gentoo, Knoppix, etc. You can also create bootable USB drive to install or test Google Android OS in your Desktop PC or laptop. Just download a ported ISO file of Android OS and write it to your USB drive using this little tool.
Rufus comes with FreeDOS support. If you use a non-US keyboard, FreeDOS is recommended as it supports more keyboard layouts. In both cases, if you choose DOS, this freeware will try to set the keyboard locale for you.

You can download it using following link:

Official Link to Download Mozilla Firefox Full Standalone Offline Installer

Mozilla Firefox is one of the best and most popular web browsers available on Internet. It's also my favorite web browser and I use in it all computers present in my home, office and testing labs.

I have been using Mozilla Firefox since it's initial versions. I also use its testing builds which are known as Firefox Nightly builds in my machines to test drive it's new features and changes. To be honest Firefox Nightly builds are very stable and I never face any issues or crashing problems with Nightly versions.

Download Mozilla Firefox Full Standalone Offline Installer


In past, Mozilla used to provide full offline installer of Firefox so users didn't need any Internet connection at the time of installation. The offline installer already contained required setup files.
But since a few versions release, Mozilla has started providing online installer (also known as stub or net installer) of Firefox. So when you go to Mozilla Firefox website and click on "Download Now" button to download its setup installer, it downloads a very small (few KB size) installer. When you run the installer, it requires Internet connection to download the full setup of Firefox from Mozilla servers.

The online installer extracts the "Setup-stub.exe" file in a temporary folder on your computer which then downloads the full setup files of Firefox and then installs the browser in your computer.
Now imagine a situation when you need to install Mozilla Firefox in many computers, you'll need to run the online installer in every computer and then it'll download the required setup files from Internet in all computers. It'll take lots of time and will waste your Internet connection bandwidth. It might also become very irritating for you if you are going to install Firefox in multiple computers.
That's why today in this article, we are going to tell you how to download full standalone offline installer of Mozilla Firefox which can be used in many computers to install Firefox without any need of Internet connection. The offline installer contains all required files and installs Firefox in all computers without Internet connection.

Actually Mozilla already provides Firefox offline installers but they are not provided by default. You need to follow some steps to download the full offline installer.

If you also want to download the full standalone offline installer of Mozilla Firefox latest version, follow these simple steps:

Instead of going to homepage of Mozilla Firefox, go to following web page:

Download Mozilla Firefox Full Standalone Offline Installers

The above mentioned link contains full offline installers of Mozilla Firefox available in all languages such as English, Hindi, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu, etc.
You can download specific editions of Mozilla Firefox using the above mentioned link such as:
  • Windows 64-bit (x64)
  • Windows 32-bit (x86)
  • Linux 64-bit (x64)
  • Linux 32-bit (x86)
  • MacOS
You just need to find the desired language and edition and click on the "Download" link to download full standalone offline installer of Mozilla Firefox. You can also search for specific language using the given search box.
Similarly, you can download the full standalone offline installers of other versions of Mozilla Firefox such as Beta, Nightly, Developer Edition, ESR (Extended Support Release) using following links:

Download Mozilla Firefox ESR Full Standalone Offline Installer 

Download Mozilla Firefox Beta Full Standalone Offline Installer  

Download Mozilla Firefox Nightly Full Standalone Offline Installer

Download FeedDemon 4.5 Pro Version for Free

If you spend your time on Internet reading blogs and forums, you might be using an RSS Feed reader to get instant alert of latest articles on your favorite blog or forum. RSS Feed readers alert you automatically as soon as a new article is posted on your subscribed blog or forum.
I also use an RSS Feed reader "FeedDemon". I'm using it since many years and I also created a portable version of FeedDemon which doesn't need any installation:


FeedDemon used to come in 2 versions: Free and Pro. Free version showed advertisement in bottom-left corner of the program window. Pro version contained some extra features such as feed prefetching, content filters, themes, etc.

Now some good news and same bad news. FeedDemon development has been stopped. The program will no longer be updated. But the good news is that a new version FeedDemon 4.5 has been released which is the last version of FeedDemon and comes absolutely free with all features of FeedDemon Pro version.

So You can download the latest 4.5 version of FeedDemon free and it'll not show any advertisement and will provide all Pro version features without any cost.

Download FeedDemon 4.5 Pro Version for Free

ne thing has been removed from the latest version which is Google Reader synchronization support. Since Google Reader is going to retire on July 1, 2013, the synchronization feature will not work in FeedDemon. That's why the Google Reader synchronization feature has been removed from the program. It's also a major reason behind shut down of FeedDemon program.
Interested people can download FeedDemon Pro 4.5 version using following link:
