Editors' review

GoneIn60s is a neat little program that makes those Homer Simpsonesque "D'oh!" moments where you close Firefox instead of iTunes a thing of the past. Weighing in at a hefty 206KB, Gone keeps closed programs running in your RAM for an additional 60 seconds after you hit that red X.

Once running, Gone lives in your Taskbar as a yellow lightning bolt. After you close a program, right-clicking on the icon will give you a list of recently closed programs that you can reopen, without any information being lost. Double-clicking on the icon will rescue all recently closed programs.

The program has a lot going for it. You can actually customize the time period, and we were able to fend off losing apps for 200 seconds. Gone has a customizable blacklist of programs that you don't want it to save when you close them--it comes preloaded with Notepad.exe--and it has a "kill windows" option that prevents it from saving changed documents. When I exited Gone, it reopened the last closed program--a strange bug, but not one that interferes with the program's effectiveness.

Lightweight, effective, and loaded with some useful features, GoneIn60s will help you keep your cool under the pressure of accidental red X clicks.
