This is a site with information about torrents. They seem to be the best source for the latest news. They are slanted in favor of torrent use, but do put forth both sides.

If you are interested in torrents, this is a good place to stop by daily to see the latest news (I do).

This is a great site to look for freeware for primarily Windows, but also Mac, Linux and portable devices. They only suggest software and do not have downloads at the site (there are links).

What I like is that each of the categories is maintained by a volunteer who has a special interest in that type of software. They give real world application reviews as they are using the software themselves.

If you are looking for software, this is a great place to check our first. Odds are you will find a freeware that will meet your needs. I have always found one and no longer have any paid for products on my computer.

For the vast majority of downloads, the site is safe. However, their "100% guarantee" of safe downloads should not be believed. I recently downloaded something from there that installed SweetIM without permission. This is a well known issue with SweetIM (firefox has banned it because of this) and there was no notification at the site of this extra software. I wrote and advised them of this malware, but they still do not have advise to users of this on the download page.

This site used to be reliable, but no longer is. There is no way of telling when you will get malware.
