Great programs you use


Hazar

Recommended Posts

Ok, since everyone here loves µtorrent because of it's greatness (for lack of a better term), what are some other programs you use for doing different things?

I'll gives some general catagories that most people use:

Webbrowsing: Firefox (duh)

Movie player: BS Player

IM: Trillian (Xfire for gaming)

IRC: HydraIRC

voip in general: mostly google talk, but ventrilo from time to time

Music Player: quintessential

Audio Editing: Audacity

Unzipping: WinRAR

Picture browsing: Irfanview

Picture editing: Photoshop (haven't got around to switching to gimp yet)

CD burning: nero 7

image mounting: Daemon tools

Antivirus: AVG

Firewall: zonealarms

Bandwidth Monitor: tautology bandwidth monitor

Temp monitor: MBM 5

And that's about all :P

of course, I don't use them all at the same time ;)

Web- depends, IE6, patched to the core, High Security, etc. Or K-Meleon, or PortableFF, or OffByOne

IM: ICQ

IRC: mIRC, bare bones, just tweaked out so it looks good, and functions decently. no custom addons scripts, etc.

voip: ventrillo when gaming

Unzip: WinRar

Pictures: MSpaint.exe....lol. it works for what i need it to do.

CD burnin: nero 7 ultra

Antivirus: none. common sense, and general good computing is always better than memory/CPU hogging AV....though, I might try out ClamWIN/AV since it's open source and free.

Firewall: Linksys BEFW11S4 v4. all 3 connected computers run Windows Firewall. no nagging, it just works :P. Also use pg2.

FTP: I like FTP.exe....lol

hm, i think thats it.

Oh yea, text editors. i use notepad primarily, but also use(d) UltraEdit, ConTEXT, Notepad2, Notepad++

really, depends what im doing :P
