There is a lot of software out there to help you accomplish any task you can think of, but how do you know what is the best to use? Well here is a list of software that I use, and most of this software is free.

Web Browsers

  • Chrome, this is my first pick
  • Firefox, a classic!
  • Brave Browser, this is a brand new browser by the ousted Mozilla CEO.  It is lacking many features right now, but I will be keeping my eye on the development of this software.

Media

  • Clementine, alternative to iTunes
  • MusicBee, another alternative to iTunes
  • Amazon Music, if you are an Amazon Prime member, you need to check this out!
  • VLC (VideoLAN), this is media player can play almost any audio or video file
  • Paint.NET, similar to Photoshop, but its free!
  • Picasa, very nice photo organizer and basic editor.
  • XnView, recently Google announced they are no longer developing Picasa, this is a good alternative.

Office

  • Foxit Reader, this is a much better and free alternative to Adobe Reader
  • LibreOffice, this is a free compatible replacement to Microsoft Office
  • Office 365, if you are not a fan of Libre Office, you can’t beat Office 2016/365
  • Google Drive, free, capable, online office suite
  • Thunderbird, a free alternative to Microsoft Outlook, and Windows Live Mail

Security

Cloud Storage and Backup

Games

  • Steam, excellent system were you can purchase almost any game.
  • GOG Galaxy, similar to Steam, except it is DRM free!
