10. jDownloader

 JDownloader is open source, platform independent and written completely in Java. It simplifies downloading files from One-Click-Hosters like Rapidshare.com or Megaupload.com – not only for users with a premium account but also for users who don’t pay. It offers downloading in multiple paralell streams, captcha recognition, automatical file extraction and much more. Of course, JDownloader is absolutely free of charge.

5. Mozzila Firefox / Google Chrome

 I know these two are different software but I will say they are both tie right now.

Google Chrome was developed to be a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier.

One box for everything
Type in the address bar and get suggestions for both search and web pages.
Thumbnails of your top sites
Access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from any new tab.
Shortcuts for your apps

Mozilla Firefox – faster, more secure, easier to use and sporting a new look, this latest Firefox release sets a new standard for web browser innovation. Mozilla Firefox project (formerly Firebird, which was formerly Phoenix) is a redesign of Mozilla’s browser component, written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform. It is small, fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web browsers, such as the tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up windows.

3. Open Office

A credible rival to MS Office, OpenOffice.org includes powerful applications for making text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, diagrams, and databases, as well as HTML and XML documents. Not only does it let you edit basic documents, such as letters and faxes, it also handles equations and complex and multipart documents with bibliographies, reference tables, and indexes.
The interface is similar to that of MS Office, and even advanced Office users will find almost everything they’re used to: templates, collaborative features (versions, recording changes), macros, and even a programming language. OOo, as it’s known, lets you open and save documents in formats as diverse as MS Office formats, PDF, HTML, and XML. It can also import files from those formats, as well as WordPerfect and others. However, it normally saves files in the open-standard Oasis OpenDocument XML format, for maximum compatibility with other applications.

The latest versions of OpenOffice
have seen a spurt of growth in the extensions available for the program. These include templates for professional writers, an export tool for bidirectional functionality with Google Docs, blog publishing, and others. Blog publishing assistance especially strikes us as a natural area for word processing to grow toward.

2. VLC Media Player

“It plays everything!”

 VLC Media Player – Universal media player that can play almost any existing file formats: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, XviD, H.264, MP3, OGG and other, regular DVD and VCD discs and music formats.

    Hi Guys,

    Great job with the blog post. Very helpful.
    One quick question – Have you ever considered partnering blogs like yours for guest blogging or cross blogging arrangements? For blogs like yours, it could be a great way to promote your websites in an absolutely new segment of like minded readers, increase your subscribership and get genuine back links. And what makes it even more appealing is that it’s absolutely free, as long as you’re willing to promote the posts of other blogs as well. No complicated long term contracts or online frauds, just simple cross promotions with genuine bloggers like you, building readership one post at a time.
    At Blog Support and Service, we understand the harsh competition that we bloggers face each day. And it gets so much easier if we can help each other out.
    So, let us assist you in finding a good network of bloggers. Give us a shout back, and I’ll write to you a detailed mail explaining the nuts and bolts of the arrangement, how it works, and what makes it so simple, transparent, and effective.
    Thanks!

    P.S I too hate it when people try to contact me via comments on my post. But I couldn’t locate the contact info on the webpage. Sorry!
