File Extension Seeker
It's a sort of specialized search engine for file extensions listing sites.
It periodically crawl some of the best file extensions web sites of the net,
and let you make complex queries across all of them, in a very fast and convenient way.
Check also the new resources list here: File-Extension.net.
I tried to group some of the best and more interesting sites about file extensions, filetypes,
file format conversions, computer forensics, etc.
Last but not least. The TrID file identifier
is included in DEFT Linux, a very interesting Computer Forensics Live CD!

XRK v1.50 was tested on an HP200LX Double Speed palmtop. XRS & XRC already works -
slowly but correctly. XRA & XRD instead doesn't works. Probably a new minor
release will follow to fix the problem. At the moment it's still be possible to
use the executables from the previous 1.36 version.
New XRK v1.50 online in the Software - Core Wars section.
Fixed a problem with the navigation's links on the menu bar (Thx CapitanoNemo!).
Started to update the Software - Core Wars section.
Expanded the Core Wars links section.
New home page layout. With a bit of luck it could be even uglier than before!
And that wasn't an easy task! Not at all!
Now on line XRK v1.45 beta in the Software - Core Wars section.
