Useful Software Thread:
- Make sure the software of choice works at least. We have computer software experts here on this forum and they somewhat have a good idea on what works and what's been coded by drunk monkeys. I'm not one, but I'm certain there's one here on the forums
- If it has 5 recommendations, it's on the list.
- Give as many recs as you like, there's no limit.
- In the event the software uses plugins, addons or apps, we'll make a seperate list for them.
- Yes, you are allowed to post Commercial Software here, though do bear in mind Crack Is Cheaper

- Mozilla Firefox: The No.1 browser of choice
- Google Chrome: Though this is a brilliant alternative, sometimes even surpassing firefox
- Spotify: Music Jukebox system of brilliant quality. EU Only, though
- Hotspot Shield: The No.1 reason to use this is to protect your IP address. And the real reason to avert No Export for You

- WinRAR: Extraction and Archiver system. What most of our users use if they don't use 7zip
- Rocket Dock: Application Launcher. Helps make your desktop cleaner.
- Also Seconding Opera, Songbird and Speccy, along with 7zip
- Funny how No-One's posted any commercial software yet.

- foobar2000 is one of those items that may look simplistic at first, but caon be transformed into a brilliant audio player when you install various addons.
- Chatzilla: Firefox IRC client. Really easy to use.
