20 Best Free Windows Softwares must have


Here’s this week’s top 10:

  1. Skype
    How did we ever manage without it? Cheap phone calls, quality conversations with other Skype users.

  2. MyInfo
    Into its third version, and despite some teething troubles a remarkable vision of where freeform databases could go.

  3. Stick
    Some folk I know well swear by this little thing. Post-It note-like tabs to store text, folders etc that cling to the edge of your screen.

  4. Anagram
    Still an important part of my day, taking people’s email signatures and turning them into something my PIM can understand.

  5. Trillian IM Client
    Yes, I know there are others, but I love this IM aggregator. Gathers all your instant messaging accounts in one window.

  6. HotRecorder
    Excellent way to record Skype conversations. Great way to label and store old conversations too.

  7. ActiveWords
    Even if you only use 10% of its features, you’re still ahead. A way to access everything without ever leaving the keyboard.

  8. TaskTracker
    Lists recent documents by type for easy access. It should be higher but I’ve noticed more recent versions seem to suck up resources more than the earlier one.

  9. MessageTag
    Some people hate the idea of having someone know when they open someone’s email, but the complaints have been few and far between, and it saves me a lot of sitting around and wondering.

  10. Text Monkey
    Easily clean copied text. Don’t understand how other people survive without this.
     
  11. Miro  :- Beautiful interface. Plays any video type (much more than windows media player). Subscribe to video RSS, download, and watch all in one. Torrent support. Search and download from YouTube and others.
     
  12. Pidgin:-  Connect to multiple IM accounts simultaneously in a single app, including: AOL IM, MSN, and Jabber.

  13. Skip Screen :-A Firefox extension that skips unnecessary clicks and wait times on Rapidshare, Megaupload, Mediafire, zShare, and more.

  14. RSSOwl :-
    Solid cross-platform RSS client.

  15. VLC Player:-
    Plays more video files than most players: Quicktime, AVI, DIVX, OGG, and more. Pretty good interface.
     
  16. AbiWord :- 
    A word processor. Leaner and quicker than OpenOffice. Compatible with Microsoft Word documents and OpenDocument Format.
     
  17. GIMP:-
    Photo editing application that rivals Photoshop in features.
     
  18.  File Zilla:-
    Excellent FTP program.

  19. Xemacs:-
    The classic, super customizable editor, for Windows.

  20. Sharp Develop :-
    Open Source IDE for the .NET Framework. Utilizes the multiple programming languages and Windows forms
