A sincere effort by sah to start a thread to share the list of free (freeware) software. But alas, things turn into ugly goo of pirated software :(


A useful link,


Utorrent (P2P file sharing software)

Wordweb (A very small, but powerful vocabulary tool. must have for everyone who reads article/blogs etc online)

Net meter (A handy application for internet users)

K-Lite codec pack

Magic Disk (Virtual disk creator for .iso .bin etc files)


Avast antivirus

Free Download Manager

Google Chrome


After using it, I believe secunia PSI should also be added to the list. Amazing tool.


^ What is it about?


It scans currently installed software for security holes and such and provides the users with links to the developers website where one can download fixes/newer updates. Great really for finding out which software is out of date.
