Best Windows Programs?

By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

Some random blog posted their list of their favorite Windows programs. I linked this post because, for the most part, I do agree with the author. Definitely worth the read.

However, I do have one major disagreement - his choice of broswer. Although Opera is faster (and I am using Opera right now for development purposes), FireFox is quickly advancing as the best browser around. FireFox, through extensions development, has become even more robust than Internet Explorer and most developers are now programming with FireFox in mind. Additionaly, certain web controls will work in FireFox and IE that do not work in Opera and losing functionality is not something I want to deal with when browsing the web (example: FCKEditor). Finally, with the backing of Google paying for FireFox installations, how can you bet against FireFox these days?
