My list of must have free softwares-2010

As soon as I got a pc I start looking at Configuration, Connectivity [;)] and Installations. As for humans Food, Air, Water are basic necessities; for my computer I always make sure I do have perticular softwares installed. In this post I will list my 7 most used free softwares for general usage.

WordWeb:

Of-course my English vocabulary is not that strong and I constantly need to find meanings and all. Hence I always make sure I have WordWeb. It is a one-click English thesaurus and dictionary for Windows that can look up words in almost any program.
It can also look up words in web references such as the Wikipedia encyclopedia.
To find meanings and search word: Select a word and press Ctrl+Alt+W OR simply Ctrl+Right click the word

EditPlus:

This editor comes with a lot of features especially my favorites RegExp capabilities. It is a text editor, HTML editor, PHP editor, Java editor and Hex Viewer for Windows.
EditPlus also offers: Syntax highlighting for HTML, PHP, Java, C/C++, CSS, ASP, Perl and Seamless Web browser for previewing HTML pages and Uploading local files to FTP server and and more.

EPIC:

I barely use Internet Explorer. I believe Internet is not meant to be used by Internet-Explorer and vice versa. 🙂
My choice of browsers were Firefox and then I used Google Chrome a lot. But recently I’ve been using Epic Browser and I’m quite satisfied with the browsing experiance.

VLC Player:

For whom Music is ( / part of) life, a good player is very important. Winamp no doubt the best choice for playing mp3s. But you should have VLC Player as “It plays everything!”.

And what is more it can even play back the file or media if it is damaged! Missing or broken pieces are no stop to VLC, it plays all the video and audio information that’s still intact. You can also broadcast through it.

DAEMON Tools:

Computer games is something I cannot resist. My friends better know how much important it is to have a Virtual Drive in computer.
I choose DAEMON Tools, an advanced application for multiprotection emulation. It emulates max. 4 DVD-ROM drives and works with CD/DVD images created by many burning programs.
It supports:
cue/bin,iso,ccd (CloneCD),bwt (Blindwrite),mds (Media Descriptor File),cdi (Discjuggler),nrg (Nero),pdi (Instant CD/DVD),b5t(BlindWrite 5),b6t,isz.

Thanks Daemon you supported me for my NFS, FIFA, SOF, EOA, MUMMY, MAXPAINE… virtual disks 🙂

DoPdf:

PDF Converter is a software which I use many of the times. DOPdf is the free PDF converter for both commercial and personal use which I use. It’s installed as a Virtual Printer which generates PDF when given a print. To create a PDF we just have to open document / image > choose Print > Select doPDF as printer and Specify file location for PDF.

TeamViewer
Are you away from your home? I have something very important there and you need it? You need to guide some one or give a demo of something? Ay work related to Remote Access and Support over the Internet I choose TeamViewer.

TeamViewer connects to any PC or server around the world within a few seconds. You can remote control your partner’s PC as if you were sitting right in front of it.I mainly used it for downloads and guiding my parents using computer.
