LastPass Pocket is a standalone personal database decrypter. It's a portable executable, meaning it does not need to be installed, that is used to decrypt a local encrypted copy of the password database. See More
AdBlock+ tends to use a lot of memory, which has been documented in many use cases as well as admitted by AdBlock themselves. Considering there are alternatives out there that can block ads successfully with half the RAM usage as AdBlock, one has to wonder why this is a problem specific to AdBock. See More
