Download free software

Want to download free software or it’s free trials ?, but don’t get reliable site for it?,  Then keep reading because I’m going to tell you about some sites that I have came across in my entire internet experience from where I download known softwares as well as explore new softwares .


So let us start from my favorite tech softwares download side.

 

1. MajorGeeks.com → Visit site HERE

MajorGeeks.com

A site that I came across around 6 years back.A well organized site with lots of freeware,trial and paid softwares.

Beside that, it has a user rating system to help good softwares go up and get better exposure !


2. Filehippo.com   Visit site HERE

FileHippo

 

 

 

 

 

We can say this site as an database of softwares . Ranging from the oldest  to the latest version,you will find it at one place.

However,unlike MajorGeeks,they don’t allow users to upload their own softwares.


3.OpenSourceMac.org   Visit site HERE

4. Download.com   Visit site HERE

Download.com

 

 

 

 

 

You might be wondering, why I did not mention it before ? .Well because, it has become a bit annoying since they changed the domain to “download.cnet.com” and made compulsory to download their downloaded to download  the files we want to. Still one of the oldest  and most visited software download site in the world.


5. Sourceforge.net Visit site HERE

  • nice one, guys like me always search for these things
    thanks for sharing

      We’re Glad that you found it useful 🙂

  • The one I personally prefer is the second option you mentioned, i.e., FileHippo. The reasons I prefer that:

    1) The softwares are of latest version.
    2) They provide direct download links, no additional downloading even after downloading the software.
    3) Their site layout is quiet elegant and clean, love it.

    Sometimes I use Cnet’s download.com and Softpedia, but I don’t really like them to be honest because they provide additional installers and install sh!t plugins and softwares. (We can uncheck, but still, it’s sh!t). Good article, I never knew about ZDnet, MajorGeeks and FileCluster. I’ll be sure to check em’

      Exactly Ayush!, I think we have the same thought about Filehippo. Beside that , people have started to hate download.com for their annoying downloader, as we have to perform 2 steps instead of one, so atleast I don’t prefer to waste time there these days.
      Thanks for commenting, keep reading, Cheers !
