Programs for use on the Internet

A program for Instant Messaging that allows you to log into AIM, MSNM, Y! IM, ICQ, and IRC. Other features include multiple connections to each service, automatic logging.
Mozilla Firefox An excellent Internet Browser. It has many very useful extensions. It supports multiple operating systems, including Windows, Linux and Mac OS.
Opera An Internet Browser. I like it bcause it is smaller than Netscape 7.x and is not a Microsoft product. It supports multiple operating systems, including Windows, Linux and Mac OS.
Download Accelerator Plus
It's a freeware program that accelerates downloads and allows pausing and then resuming downloads at a later time.
Ad-aware It's a great spyware and adware remover utiliy. I prefer it to Spybot-S&D, however if you use both, one often catches what the other misses. "Ad-aware Standard Edition is THE award winning, free*, multicomponent detection and removal utility that consistently leads the industry in safety, user satisfaction, support and reliability."
Spybot - Search & Destroy "Spybot - Search & Destroy can detect and remove spyware of different kinds from your computer. Spyware is a relatively new kind of threat that common anti-virus applications do not yet cover. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you didn't intentionally install, if your browser crashes, or if you browser start page has changed without your knowing, you most probably have spyware. But even if you don't see anything, you may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging that is silently tracking your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile of you that will be sold to advertisement companies. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm in trying to see if something snooped into your computer."
Smart FTP It's an excellent FTP Client that is free for educational and non-profit use.
