Silent Runners

less than 1 minute read


“Silent Runners” to me are applications that I have running in my system tray or as extensions for my web browser. By all means, make your own list, but here is mine:

Sys Tray:

  1. Zemana Anti-Keylogger – An application that helps protect against keyloggers.

  2. Unchecky – Automatically unchecks third party add-ons during installs.

  3. Quick Cliq – Personalization application. I use it as a single key press application launcher.

  4. Greenshot – Great screen shot utility.

Chrome Extensions:

  1. uBlock Origin – Open source ad blocker.

  2. Ad Guard Block – Ad blocker.

  3. Ghostery – Privacy extension

  4. WOT – Web of Trust. Shows icons next to links letting you know if they are trusty or not.

  5. LastPass – Password manager of choice.

Most of the above will have Firefox ports as well. Go to to search/install
