Softpedia the download site

Normally when I needed a particular software , I used to run to download.com , to get all that I needed. Download.com does have a rich variety of softwares from utilities to tweak up your system to macromedia flash mx 2004 (trial :P).

However over the years I slowly started to get fed up with the never changing interface and the lack of useful information. Plus to actually download something you need to click on the download link , it redirects you to another waiting page , loads lots of useless graphics on that page and then you can download. This takes like ages for the 300Mhz prehistoric pc i have at home.

Lately I came upon softpedia which has a nicer presentation of the downloadable contents It shows related files which you would want to download depending on your search and provides you in certain cases a certificate that the software is spyware, tojan, virus free, which is mondo cool.

Its a pretty good alternative if you are fed up with download.com which is the case for me :P.
