Softpedia, the Wikipedia...of Software!

Softpedia is essentially the Wikipedia of software. All software on the site has been organized into categories and sub-categories so that the user can easily find what he or she needs. In addition, all software has a user rating and has been automatically checked for viruses, ensuring safe download and installation. A lot of the software on Softpedia is freeware, although there re some trial versions here and there. The site also includes PC news and software for Windows, Mac and Linux, in addition to mobile applications and PDA, or palm software. Softpedia has categories dedicated to games, office software, scripts, drivers and etc. Downloads are absolutely free and registration is only required to upload software and post in the forums. Softpedia puts equal stress on Mac, Windows and Linux software, so no matter what operating system you're using, you'll find the software you need.

So you want me to download unknown source.
There's no need to worry about any additional 'packages' coming with your download. Softpedia guarantees 100% clean downloads, meaning no malware, spyware, adware or viruses. In addition, you can also view any reviews that may have been typed up for clues as to what the package contains (screenshots included). It would also be a good idea to see how many downloads the software received to check its authenticity and reliability.

Certain software receive a bright red ribbon with a "5/5" on them. This denotes an 'editor's pick', any software with a ribbon has usually been rigorously tested and scanned and proved to by virus free and easy to use. Happy downloading!
