I've been a Redditor for years and it's been a major part of my internet experience. I've laughed, I've cried, I've learned (I have learned SO MUCH from this site from mending my hoover to improving my coding. The list is endless.

The interface is tricky at first (in that it's extremely simple and text based). But hey, no goddam social media icons everywhere, or irritating ads, no request for your personal information.

Reddit - you've been there for me. Love you.

Strange how these sites survive in which the recommended software for so many of the categories is from history. They use Joe Public to run each section which, inevitably, leads to inadequate processing, pompous and "wordy" reviews (hey everyone, I've finally found a place for people to listen to me).

There are some sections in which the reviews are at least a year out of date and the latest and greatest options are not even acknowledged. I would consider it more of a novelty/retro site than one whose advice I would take (at least without treble checking it elsewhere first).

Sites like this kind of exist off the back of their history. If you want good freeware advice there are far better places. Also avoid Download.com as they are hosting known malware, which all the reputable sites have removed after receiving evidence. Snapfiles, Sourceforge and FileHippo are excellent. If you have multiple programs to install go to Ninite.com and do them all in one go (plus they automatically remove all the crapware that companies try to sneak in during installation.

And what's with that Gizmo thing ? Like I said, they are from the past and really have remained there. It's like a software museum almost.

Oh dear this is yet another website of the bad webminds.com and cheesesoft. They seem to have dozens of sites for the same software but all with different names. I am afraid that sets alarm bells ringing for me especially when so many of these sites seem to have bad reviews with lots of people complaining about being scammed and others saying they are spyware and Trojans. I am worried as I downloaded one of the programs and installed it. I just wish I had looked around a bit more first. I do not understand why they are hiding who they are with no way to contact them and so many different names for their sites and maybe it is to avoid all the bad reviews they receive. I did not realize it was a Chinese site at first or I would have been more aware of the dangers. You must and should take great care as they have some very bad write ups. Thank you. Ray.
