opening website takes forever … goodbye DM2

i run my windows system at work with a bunch of software tools:

  • puretext [paste clipboard in plain text]
  • dm2 [always on top any window/send to tray any window]
  • bins [group software on the taskbar]
  • hotkeyz [well … for hotkeys]
  • winsplit revolution [a great window positioning/aligning tool]
  • and one or two more …

those all worked fine with windows 7 but unfortunately not all work with windows 8 …

puretext does simply do nothing when trying to paste a text with the hotkey set … and dm2 is making even firefox behave strange … that’s where the title comes from .. dm2 causes firefox to take several minutes to load one page …

for now i will just life without them .. but i am certain there are some alternatives over at alternativeto.net
