Great Freeware Everyone Should Have

As a first post in the blog I’ll write one of those things that just about everyone has written, a list of the best freeware tools around. I’m sure you’ve read one before and you probably know some of these programs already but read on and you might discover some new ones.

Well what list of great freeware doesn’t start with Firefox, one of the best web browsers around. For those who haven’t heard of Firefox, it is a free, open-source, browser that can replace Internet Explorer or Safari. It is faster, more secure and far more customizable than any other web browser, there are thousands of free addons to add features to it, you can find them all at the Mozilla Addons website.

Ever found yourself having to open multiple windows to check different email addresses or social networks for messages? Maybe you use different emails for work and personal things, or use several social networks, either way Digsby is the program for you. Digsby is a free program that combines Instant Messaging, Emails and Social Networking. Digsby allows you to control all your existing accounts, including Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Facebook, MSN, Twitter, GMail and so many others, all from one convenient application on your desktop!

Paint.NET LogoPaint.NET is a free image and photo editing software. Originally it was intended to replace Microsoft Paint but its features have gradually increased and now it is considered by some to be a free alternative to Photoshop. Unfortunately, because it is built on the .NET framework, it is only available on Windows.

OpenOffice.org is a free office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics and databases. It is fully compatible with Microsoft Office and can replace it completely.

I will be adding more great freeware very soon, stay tuned :).

If you know any good freeware  programs that you think should beon the list  please leave a comment and I will check them out :).
