I installed Sumatra PDF, MS Office 2007 (on external HDD), MBAM, VLC Media Player and uBlock.
EagleGet Download manager:
I like the list of softwares you mentioned.

Sumatra Pdf reader is a great application for reading PDF files. (Foxit too is becoming bloated and takes much time in cold start.) and for other fancy features we have other commercial softwares.

Eagleget is another good free alternative to IDM.

I would suggest you to replace VLC by Daum Pot Player and ublock by ublock origin.

VLC sometimes struggles to play .mp4 files with serious lags in playback while sliding thorough the playing video. Well, it's a subjective opinion. :)

After trying these browsers i am thinking of installing Cent a second browser on my system;)

I hope all of you will find these information's helpful :)
Thanks @tonibalas . Your information really help. (as usual) :)

I will try Cent, is a navigator who I had not heard. I recently tried UC Browser (beta) based on Chrome and it is fast as a bullet, :eek: but you know, I'm looking for a convenient and fast browser with translation :oops: and it had to use extensions, so I dismissed :(

Thanks again my friend :)

Rcentely, I tested every single browsers on the internet (21 browsers) to figure out which is the best...
But I finally settled with Slimjet x64:) I will never ever leave it and has earned the honor of being my default browser :D

Please check my post below to see it for yourself how great Slimjet x64 is ;)

I seriously think "Slimjet" browser is the fastest and safest

About Bandzip i just wanted to try something else than Winrar and 7-zip and from the reviews i read it seemed a good software.
I installed it and i am using for over a year. I use it mostly on Malware Hub section.
It's stable and pretty fast when unpacking, so far i am happy with it and no need to change it.

About Cent i wanted to find a chromium based browser because Chrome was a bit on my system.
I tried Slimjet for awhile but it was using a little more CPU than Cyberfox.
After trying some other browsers i ended it up with Cent which uses very little CPU and about Ram usage is about the same
with Cyberfox.
I really like Cent and the good thing is that it's being updated to the new chromium engine very quick.
And of course it's fast and very stable.
