When it comes to downloading software’s from the internet many of us go directly thinking about viruses. Some say the internet is full of viruses , but is it really true? In my opinion there are good sites as well as bad ones in the internet.Sites that can turn your PC into a garbage and the ones which unlocks the full potential of your PC. Every PC new or old, good or bad is of no use without software’s. Even the OS is a piece of software.
Downloading software’s has always become a problem for beginners or novices. Some of them has unlimited internet connection but don’t know where to download the software’s without it containing any adware or spywares.
So folks, here are the
TOP 10 WEBSITES FROM WHERE YOU CAN DOWNLOAD FREE SOFTWARE’S :
Note : The best place to download software’s is directly from the author or owners website.
By far the best website, if you are planning to download software’s from the Internet.You can be 100% sure that this site is free from any malware. This site provides the latest version of software but you can also download the older versions of a particular software if your device doesn’t support it.Also File Hippo offers latest news which you can read while downloading the software.
Just like Wikipedia , this site is an encyclopedia of software’s. Softpedia not only has software’s for a Windows PC but also for Linux version. This site provides drivers , security utilities, networking tools etc. It also provides an insight editors review on the software’s. There is also a feature called Download basket, which is like a shopping cart to manage our downloads.
This site has been around for a while. Its one of the best sites from where you can download software directly.The UI of this site is pretty simple so the page loads pretty fast. The disadvantage of this site is that most of the softwares can only be downloaded through their special download manager which is needless to say comes with some shareware software’s.So make sure what you install on your PC.
In this site you can not only download software for your PC, but also get to read tech news (cnet news) and other fun stuff.They also provides you latest news, product reviews , how-tos, and fun videos on their channel in youtube.
Another awesome site to download free software’s and I must say, the UI of this website is really mind blowing in my opinion. Like cnet they also provide product reviews and stuff like that. This site also includes the download manager but you have an option to download file without it.You can also download games from this website.
At no. 6 we have filehorse website which is a little bit same as the File hippo in its UI.You can download softwares for different platforms like Windows,Mac, etc. This website provides you with a wide variety of softwares genre (almost all above sites does) like security,system tuning etc.
This is a massive website having high speed linux servers.You can download operating systems (OS) like windows 10 ,7,8 (un-activated) trial version from this site for free.Since Microsoft put down Digital River content, this is especially useful for anyone looking to download OS directly.This site has only popular software’s like Adobe,Iobit etc but it climbed onto this list only because of the down speed offered by this site.
Ninite is actually a software which helps you keep your apps up-to-date. Ninite automatically installs the latest version of the software and frees up your day. You cannot download software’s directly from Ninte’s website without downloading the Ninite software which acts like an online installer.What’s so interesting about this app is that from their website you only have to choose your apps, install to your PC and then sit-back and relax while ninte does the job. The app automatically finds the latest version of a particular software for your OS.This is especially useful for Windows XP users (support ended on April 2014) .
