Best Freeware Of The Year – Courtesy Of Brothersoft
We found it would be a great idea to see what the Brothersoft team considers to be the list with the best applications of the year because this is a website we trust for our software needs. At the top of the list, you will find Format Factory, which is a free program that you can download by clicking here. It has all the features that regular users would expect to see in a media converter. You can mess around with audio and video files and you can even merge them and add subtitles whenever necessary. You can use Format Factory to repair damages files, reduce file size and, the best news is that you files will be compatible with you PSP or iPhone.
If we had an audio and video converter, then we must bring you a photo editor as well. Photoscape with another Brothersoft editor’s pick and you can download it for free and play around will all the popular tools you will need for creating fun and personalized images. You can remove red-eyes effects, modify contrast, add or remove light and shadows, add capture effects and even create slideshows. It is a lot easier to use compared to other photo editing software out there and it is compatible even with the brand new Windows 7 operating system.
Since YouTube as become part of our daily internet lives, just like Google or Facebook, Brothersoft have given us a great software-related ideas for downloading streamed YouTube media… and many more. Behold the Orbit Downloader! Aside from being a media downloader, it is also a download manager. With 7,630,036 download so far, people surely seem to like this application so I recommend you give it a try as well.
When it comes to music player, some people simply have their minds fixed on Winamp and Windows Media Player. What if, this time, you were to try something different? AIMP is a new music player recommended by Brothersoft and while it may seem complicated, it really is simple to use and people will get used to it in no time. Just like Winamp, you can customize your skin and download brand new ones. It is compatible with more than 20 file format and all Windows operating systems since 2000.
Sandboxie is a bit difficult to speak about. Mainly because it is a tad different compared to other application mentioned above. It is a security program which is designed to create an “isolated virtual operating environment where applications can be run without modifying the local drive”, as Brothersoft reports. While the concept may be difficult to understand, Sandboxie is being compared to a protective layer which is looking to prevent any errors and damage to your computer.
While we are not an authority in software developments, everyone on our team would agree that VLC Media Player has to be the best player of all times. Planning to spend a quite Sunday evening at home, watching a movie on your laptop or PC? Nothing better than VLC to help you run that movie. Aside from being able to support a huge number of file format, it’s a player which does not require any extra codec installed. How come? Well, if you need a codec, VLC already has it!
XnView is an application meant to help internet users view and convert graphic files. It is a bit more complex compared to Photoscape. Users can create screenshots and alter images but they can also use this application as simple audio rendering software. The beauty of XnView is that it can support over 400 graphics format and, just like every application described in this article, it is available for free download.
For people beginning their HTML programming careers, Brothersoft recommends EditPlus, a code editing tools. Amongst the important features of this software, users can discover “syntax highlighting for HTML, CSS, PHP, ASP, Perl, C/C++, Java etc, a seamless Web browser for previewing HTML pages, and FTP commands for uploading local files to FTP server”. It is easy to use even for people with not too much experience in programming and while the design and appearance are quite basic, the rich variety of tools makes it really desirable.
Unlocker is quite a unique program and I bet that you will never guess what it does unless we tell you! Do you remember that nasty error you kept getting with the message “cannot delete the file”? b will help you solve that problem by allowing you to rename, move and copy the selected file. In a more simplified explanation, allows you to remove locks.
Let us see: we had audio, video and photo editors, unlocking application, video playing software, HTML editors… what could have Brothersoft picked for the grand finale? Oh yes, an antivirus. Now, while most of you may think than an antivirus is only good if you pay for it, Brothersoft strongly recommends Avast! Free – an antivirus with a user friendly interface which is able to detect malware and help you clean up your system.
It’s been fun, but our list end here. But stay tuned; you have not heard the last of Brothersoft on Metrolic!11
