WinPatrol v30.9.2014 ReleasedDate: April 22nd 2014As promised I've focused on making WinPatrol easier and more powerful in 2014 with monthly updates. This version now includes Windows tooltips to provide a consistent, helpful interface.
In the past, I've avoided tooltips because I knew it would make WinPatrol larger, taking more space in memory. That's how much effort ase put into making WinPatrol as optimized as possible. It also presents an extra challenge for our volunteers who help translate text messages into other languages. I was wrong and now you can choose your favorite tooltip style.After performing various benchmark tests we found the actual memory used by tool tips would not impact the performance of a Windows based computer. Even machines with as little as 512K of memory were not effected by the new tool tips features. The benefits will really make WinPatrol easier to understand for new users and even folks who have used WinPatrol for years.
If someone doesn't like Tooltips or wants to use the cartoon like tool tips the Options tab provides a way to set the tooltip style to your personal preference.Whats NewCookie Update for Chrome and Firefox
• WinPatrol uses the same public domain code that is used by Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other new browsers. This version includes a copy of the newest library which appears in the WinPatrol folder as sqlite3.dll. You may notice in the WinPatrol list of hidden files many files that begin with "elitls" followed by random characters. These are SQLite files as you may notice elitls is SQLite backwards.Window Positioning
• We've updated some Window components that weren't completely visible on some machines with custom DPI. More Info l Download
