Freeware Top 30

The following is a list of 30 freeware programs that I cannot live without. I wanted this to be the one page a reader can turn to get all the essential free programs they need to install on a new computer. This list doesn’t cover the best free program in every conceivable category, but for those categories that are represented the programs showcased here in most cases, I would argue, are best-in-class.

Right clicking “search everything” on folders will soon become your method of choice when seeking, well, anything. “Everything” is relatively low on resource consumption (11 megs on my PC). > Go here to download.
