Here are my personal picks for the best free Windows software:
- Firefox, plus plug-ins: Adblock Plus, Better Privacy, Download Statusbar, FireFTP, DownloadHelper.
- 7-zip – expand and compact files, put multiple files into one container for emailing.
- FoxIt Reader – read PDFs without all the Adobe spyware. Are they starting to charge? Is this a trial version? If so, I’ll look for some other free reader.
