"Softseek for free software"

I have been using softseek.com for about a year now. They have a massive selction of free/share ware all organised in an excellent directory system.

What's more helpful is the accuracy of it's seacrh facility. It lists the results with a % to how close it matches the word of phrase you originally typed in, very useful.

Every download has its own page describing the program and usually has a snapshot of what the program looks like. It lists the authors name and allows you to view all the software produced by a particular author to.

My favorite feature is the ability to search for just freeware, I love using that. Its good to know what licence a particular download holds before you download it.

Softseek also offers a bi-weekly newsletter, listing whats new, editors picks and the top downloads. This is also useful.

The site itself is very easy to use. It includes some charts, such as editors pick and most popular downloads.

All in all if you like downloading freeware, try out this site, if you are a software producer softseek allow you to post your program on their site too, a good way to get your software exposed!

Happy downloading! (or uploading if you are a software producer)
