Best Freeware listMay 16, 2008 at 9:17 am | Posted in Online services, Software | Leave a comment
A bit ago, I mentioned Gizmo’s Tech Support Alert site. It includes some of the best software comparison and review articles as well as a comprehensive listing of some 128 categories of software. Need to know what the best free FTP program is? RSS Reader? Free Anti-virus? Its a great place to check.
Recently, the number of categories grew too large for Gizmo to maintain himself. Some software was not stuff he ever used, so his review would not have much validity. So he asked his readership for volunteers to maintain the categories, then moved it all to a Wiki style list. This way, its easy to update and open to comments and suggestions by others. Its also easier to search and browse by category.
After a period of beta testing, the service is now live. As a bonus the previously subscriber-only section is now also included. Not all the articles have been moved over yet, but the main resource is available. Check it out.
Over 120 categories with over 500 recommendations. All free.
