    I browse on both sites but Filehorse doesn't have beta updates from apps, which Filehippo and Softpedia offers.

    I will have to somewhat agree since they have an adware policy and actually scan all files for malware.
    Softpedia has a wide selection of software not listed on other download sites but on the bad site they have more junkware listed than any other download site. If you just want the basic popular software then SnapFiles and MajorGeeks are better option since it has much less junkware listed.

    FileHippo is a good download site but it takes them much longer to keep the software listed updated, sometimes falls weeks behind on some updates.

    If Softpedia would clean up all the junkware programs then it would be the best download site.

    Avoid Cnet Download.com, Softonic and BrotherSoft since they use adware wrappers.

    Enjoy!! :D

    I found out, to my horror, that some sites would reroute the "computer consumer" to CNET. I think Adobe did, I think Java did. I can't remember for certain, but I remember getting hit by this stupid PUP called "Level Quality Watcher." I've run through my antivirus programs, and for some reason the thing keeps on coming back! Argh

    Thanks so much for this post because I'm CONSTANTLY looking for good sites to research for antivirus, add-ons, :eek:etc.

    lol, i just read comments and can't stop laughing. Btw, www.techspot.com/downloads/ and www.filerabit.com are good for me because they mentioned about malware or spyware advertisement before the download button. So the user have the choice to download suspicious or ads based apps or leave it.

    I use filehorse.
    Filehippo seems to update a day after everyone else IMO.
