CNET is a very cool website that deals with everything computer, software, tech, and innovation. They describe themselves as the premier destination for tech product reviews, news, price comparisons, free software downloads, daily videos, and podcasts. That is a bit of a mouthful but they do really seem to cover all that ground.
Most people who are directly involved in the computer industry seem to know CNET best for their free downloads though. To find a CNET download just go to www.cnet.com and click on the download button at the top of the screen. They have quite a selection so if you know what you are looking for then it’s best to just type it into the search box. If not and you are just shopping around then I personally think the most popular downloads page is really cool. If millions of folks have downloaded a piece of software then there is probably a reason.
CNET Free Downloads
If you take a look around the downloads section of CNET you’ll find that not everything is free. Many downloads are not. But you can find tons of offerings that are indeed free. Typically what is free are items that the company that wrote it would have given you anyway (like Google’s Chrome for instance) but it’s pretty slick that CNET had accumulated all of these in one place for convenience.
So if you are looking for a piece of software and you’ll like to download and not bother running to the store then CNET is a great place to start looking. While you are there you will fall in love with all the other information about tech and gadgets they offer as well!
