Installing new software on your computer seems to take forever. You click through step after step to set your preferences and expectantly stare at the progress bar. And then your computer takes a half hour to restart so that the updates can finish installing!
There's a better way! Ninite is a free site that offers free downloads for over 80 applications and software programs for Windows computers.
There are so many different types of software to choose from. Downloads for web browsers, cloud storage, video calling, anti-virus software, and so much more. You name it and Ninite has it! Click the image below to enlarge it and see the entire list.
The best part is that Ninite is really easy to use. You simply check off the applications that you want, click "Get Your Ninite," and then return to what you were doing. It automatically starts running in the background, quietly doing all that tedious work for you.
Ninite installs the latest versions with the default options so it won't interrupt you to ask about preferences. It downloads applications directly from the developer's official site and won't install any extra toolbars either. And it skips over the requests to reboot your system to finish the process. It works best if you turn off firewalls.
Ninite also takes requests! If there's a popular application not offered, you can recommend it to the site and have them email you when it's listed.
***Please note: We suggested Ninite because they have several great reviews and applications we recognize. Their site states that their client list includes NASA and the Havard Medical School. Please don't download software you don't recognize from sites that have not been vetted.
