    • Ordinarily, SyncThing - which is great - runs in a web browser tab. Some people don't like that. Fair enough. So they made SyncTrayzor which gives you an alternative way of accessing SynThing functionality via the taskbar. It's not an alternative, though. It's an add-on. I don't see that much of an advantage, but others might. JohnFastmanJan 2017 • 11 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's an alternative way to use the front-end of syncthing (so it's not a full alternative to syncthing -- it is an add-on), and a great one. I recommend it to ease the usability curve for most users. Guest • Jan 2018 • 2 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
