Life is too short to waste time wading through menus just to download and install programs on our computers . . . and half the time, we mistakenly install worthless browser toolbars and annoying nagware. In November 2009 I wrote an article about and have since used it to download and install Windows and Linux applications. Ninite is a huge time saver.

Now offers a similar service. Many of its apps are the same as Ninite’s, but it does offer some apps that Ninite doesn’t. Warning: according to a Ninite employee, doesn’t decline toolbars, and detractors refer to Freenew as “an amateur hour”.

The competition between Ninite and Freenew is heating up. Read this message thread, including a message from Patrick Swieskowski, who’s a Ninite co-founder.

If you’ve not yet tried Ninite, do so the next time you install an application. Or try

Choice is good.
