The following list of software shows some of the programs that I have tried and found to be just wonderful. Most are “Windows” based and not “Mac”. Not only are these programs free but they are small downloads in comparison to the bloated name brands.
Below this list is a selection of One Click Installs available for clients hosted on our servers.

I have been using both Firefox and Thunderbird for several years now and frankly would never go back to IE or OE full time. Totally got rid of OE but kept IE on my computer due to the fact there are some sites that you have to open in IE.
