Install multiple free applications at onceNovember 18, 2009
You’ve had to reformat your computer, you’ve upgraded your existing one, or you’ve got a new one. Now you have to install all the applications (apps) you use on a daily basis, including downloading the latest and greatest of the freebies you use all the time, like Firefox, iTunes or Skype.
Be prepared to add several hours to your installation time — finding the apps’ websites, determining which is the latest version, waiting for them to download, installing them…
There has to be an easier way! And there is. Enter Ninite (http://www.ninite.com). You choose the freeware and open source apps you want to install from a single web page and Ninite does the rest while you go off and do something else.
