ConEmu – Windows console with tabs

ConEmu-Maximus5 is a Windows console window enhancement (local terminal emulator), which presents multiple consoles and simple GUI applications as one customizable tabbed GUI window with various features. Initially, the program was created as a companion to Far Manager, my favorite shell replacement. Today, ConEmu can be used with any other console application or simple GUI tools, like PuTTY. ConEmu is an active project, open to suggestions.

So you start to watch a movie but you have to leave that movie again it will be resumed at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume, etc. SMPlayer is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the award-winning MPlayer, which is capable of playing almost all known video and audio formats.

    asparata Which project is yours? 
    Projects of the week are based on downloads, so if your project is one of the top downloads of the week we qualify it.

    edaniels asparata I though it was a way to promote less known projects. mine only interest developpers. It seems to have grab little attention with about 30 download/week. It will never be a contender for project of the week I guess. Thanks anyway. The project is “tiny file dialogs”.
