This is my list of recommended software for PC. Some of them can work on Mac/Linux:
- OneNote: notebook
- AutoHotkey: custom hotkeys & automation
- ManicTime: computer usage tracker
- ShareX: screen capture & host uploading
- ClipX: clipboard manager (CopyQ for advanced features)
- RSIGuard: ergonomic software
- f.lux: blue light filter
- T-clock Redux: configurable taskbar clock
- WhatPulse: keyboard/mouse usage tracker (with heatmap and rich stats)
- XMeters: CPU monitor in taskbar
- VLC: media player
You can use PhraseExpress to replace AutoHotkey + ClipX. It has a GUI, but is much less flexible.
If you want to make any webpage (e.g. Google Keep, Gmail) as a standalone app you can use Nativefier. I recommend you to use this command line:
nativefier --single-instance --tray start-in-tray --name "Google Keep" "https://keep.google.com" "Desktop"
Firefox has an advantage over Chrome: its Android version supports addons. Because you can sync tabs, bookmarks and logins between devices, it’s better to use Firefox in all devices.
