  • Announcing “BootAble” – GRC's New Boot-Testing Freeware
    Please see the BootAble page at GRC for the whole story.
  • BootAble – FreeDOS boot testing freeware

    To obtain direct, low-level access to a system's mass storage drives, SpinRite runs under a GRC-customized version of FreeDOS which has been modified to add compatibility with all file systems. In order to run SpinRite it must first be possible to boot FreeDOS.

    GRC's “BootAble” freeware allows anyone to easily create BIOS-bootable media in order to workout and confirm the details of getting a machine to boot FreeDOS through a BIOS. Once the means of doing that has been determined, the media created by SpinRite can be booted and run in the same way.

    The participants here, who have taken the time to share their knowledge and experience, their successes and some frustrations with booting their computers into FreeDOS, have created a valuable knowledgebase which will benefit everyone who follows.

    You may click on the image to the right to obtain your own copy of BootAble. Then use the knowledge and experience documented here to boot your computer(s) into FreeDOS. And please do not hesitate to ask questions – nowhere else can better answers be found.

I was using Brave until recently. Brave is based on Chrome. I haven't tried vertical tabs there. I've migrated back to Firefox on the PC and I'm still using Brave on my Android Tablet. There are two reasons I migrated back.

First, see this thread:

Brave and Chrome Browsers NOT Secure and Private by Default

You cannot trust Brave or Chrome out of the box to be "Security Now" private and secure. You must check all settings when you install it and also every time it updates (because they sneak in new features). I would also say check all Firefox settings when you install or it updates, but there are not as many untrustworthy things in the list.

Second, like @Steve , I routinely have 50-100 tabs open. I discovered that my computer was fairly routinely running out of RAM. So, I went back to Firefox, which seems to have a more subdued memory footprint.

On Firefox, I use the Tree Style Tab plugin as @Steve has described.

I'm using FF with the Sidebery extension and a few tweaks to hide the native tab horizontal bar. It works pretty well.

Hopefully, vertical tabs can grow in popularity, so FF feels compelled to implement it.
