Check out FileHippo

February 18, 2011 at 2:17 pm

A little over a year ago, one of my colleagues from my day job suggested I download a tool from I looked at him incredulously, assuming he was joking but he wasn’t. When I checked out the site, I was surprised to see hundreds of useful programs all neatly arranged in the same place. Many of them I’d been using for years including Spybot Search & Destroy, AdAware, CCleaner, VLC Media Player and more.

Not only are all the programs neatly categorized in one place, but they are the latest versions and free of spyware, adware and viruses. FileHippo also has their own program that runs in the background which notifies you when a new version of something is released. They track a lot of common programs too including Adobe Reader, Flash, Quicktime, Skype, Winamp and many more. It’s like Windows Updates but for everything else on your computer.
