Top ten Programs of December

10 most favorite programs

1.) Mozilla Firefox, the reknown browser. I always have it open. Built on open source code since 1998. Internal popup blocker. Better than Netscape because the nightly builds are always less buggy than the latest Netscape browser. Not bloated. Skinnable.

2.) Winamp 5x – Been using it since 1999 to play music. Don’t give it a second thought. Plays every music format known to man for Windows XP. Sounds better than Windows Media Player



3.) 7-ZIP Client – The only program for Windows XP that can make 7-ZIP files (better compression than RAR) Also makes ZIP, BZIP2, TAR, and Gzip achieves. Reads 001, 7z, aji, bz2, cab, cpio, deb, gz (linux), lzh, rar, rpm (linux), tar (linux), z, and zip. Also makes executable installers with 7-ZIP or ZIP compression like WinZIP for WinRAR.

4.) Microsoft Word 2003 – Self explanatory. All my text is spellchecked here and blog entries are written here. School reports are written here as well.



5.) Paint Shop Pro 10 – I create my graphics in this program. It’s always less expensive to Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, but is less expensive and will do what most people want to create quickly except animated GIFs. JPEG2000 is supported.



6.) Nero 7 Ultra Edition – Creates quick accessible file systems for CD/DVD/DL-DVD/Blu-ray/HD-DVD burners. Previous programs make file systems that make the DVD-ROM lag twice as long or longer. Wave Studio is a good place to create AD-MP4 files with MPEG4 audio compression. The AAC files only have MPEG2 compression. Uses LAME 3.92 for encoding MP3s.


7.) Video LAN – my favorite video codec player. Doesn’t crash and plays files without widescreen (or can do widescreen). Also is a server for streaming files off the internet, but I don’t use it.


8.) CCleaner – A free unity that looks at your TEMP folder, Firefox internet cache, recycle bin, and other places to empty files


9.) Goldwave makes good AD-PCM, MP3 and OGG files. Does the same thing Nero 7 does. Also records desktop noise or your voice over the mic.

10.) AVG Free Edition file scanner – a free antivirus that is updated daily which updates itself without human input and when a virus is found it can be accessed directly so I can delete it manually.

Hey Ian's Smashing Good Blog Site GREAT title Top ten Programs of December. Thats what actually caught my eye. I was surfing blogs to try and help my customers and visitors with information on my website about ##Keyword## and paused to read but ran out of time. I will book mark it and come back to read later. This isn't really what I was looking for what I really need is information about http://www.horse-lover-gift-ideas-central.com related subjects but thank you and I shall return. I wish you well.
