Useful information everyone can use

I came across an article in the March 2008 edition of PC Magazine that lists the Best Free Software.  I have heard of quite a few of them, but some I had not.  

A couple of my favorites that were mentioned:

Firefox, this is a web browser that I have been using for awhile and I love it because unlike IE, Firefox saves all my user names and passwords and I do not have to retype them every time I check my email or my AR account.   

AGV Antivirus, is a free virus protection software.  I have been paying for virus protection for years, but this one is great!  Since installing it about a year ago, I have had no issues and it runs when I tell it to run.

Picasa, is  a great photo manager and you can share your photos with the public or just invite friends to view.  It also has a photo editing feature that is simple yet effective. 

I am still a big fan of Yahoo mail because of the many extras it comes with.  You can track your schedule and share it with your coworkers or whom ever you choose. You can save documents, plus sync the email now had unlimited storage for all of you who never delete an email!

There are lots of other great products featured in this article too.  There are a couple I plan to check out like Paint.net which boasts being the closest to Photoshop.  Also there is a printanywhere.com that says you can actually share your printer with anyone over the net.  Sounds like a great tool when trying to get info out to clients or back to the office.

Check out the article to see over 150 different software tools.  If you use a particular one already, let me know if it is any good!
