What is the latest software "discovery" you have made, preferably free?

Asked by Bri_L (12138 points ) January 21st, 2009

I just discovered EverSave and right after loosing a ton of work in Photoshop. I was very excited.

What is the latest “knock you on your but why didn’t I think of that that is cool I really need that and I need to tell others about that” program you came across.

If you can link to it that would be neat to.

Caffeine for Mac. It keeps the screen saver off while I watch my netflix.

Lifehacker runs an exquisite feature called Featured Mac Download. I believe that everything they profile is free of cost or donationware.

My most recent discovery is the cross-platform on-the-fly encryption tool, TrueCrypt. It’s excellent for keeping sensitive information locked down on a thumbdrive.

Avast Home is great. I think it’s for Windows, though.

It’s free image editing software with a whole bunch of really useful tools. As close as you can get to photoshop without spending money or breaking the law.
