    "Tired of Safari? Don't like microsofts internet program? Google Chrome is the best mobile internet program out there. Safely integrate themes and extensions with this free program and find yourself porting your favorites across all your platforms with a single sign on."

    "I've used many different anti-virus programs on various platforms. Being a programmer; security is very important to me. I haven't found a better anti-virus than AVG for use with my PC's. Its completey un-trackable, un-hackable, unbreakable and secures your VPN....honestly what more could you ask for."

    "There are a few browsers that always hit the top of the popularity lists, and Firefox is definitely one of the big names. It's a great browser, and not only for just browsing. If you're a frontend developer, their dev tools are really extensive and extremely useful. The look and feel is a little more quick and breezy than other browsers, and it's no memory hog like some of the other big names. If you're a Chrome person, you should try it just for a day and see if it doesn't make you want to switch!"

    "CCleaner honestly does a great job in helping me with my problems finding free PC programs that have certain utility functions. It helps you remove temporary and unnecessary files, and it boosts your performance by a noticeable amount. It's one of the first programs I install on a fresh machine. Be sure to review the settings before you use it though - you might not want to delete certain browser and Windows Explorer-related data that it recommends you remove by default."

    "I never have enough memory on my phone so I especially love that bitdefender runs in the cloud rather than storing lots of antivirus fixes on your phone wich can affect the memory and battery life. That feature alone makes it number one in my opinion."

    "I love OpenOffice. I use it all the time. I first downloaded it over a decade ago when it was run by Sun and used to harvest code for their StarOffice suite. I still use it today, instead of Word. I've converted pretty much everyone I work with. It's a bit clunkier than Word, but the money savings are worth it."

    "Audacity is one of the best sound programs I have ever used. It is so easy to manipulate a track in this interface and I doubt I will ever use a different program."

    "Mozilla Thunderbird is a mail client that makes life so much easier. You can incorporate all your various emails into one inbox. You can also send very large files that a lot of accounts can't like Yahoo. It really simplifies your email work and saves you time."
