The best apps you should install on your Mac or PC

Desktop Apps



This is the list of best applications you should have on your desktop.
They contain a mix of open source and proprietary software.





1. Microsoft Office 2010

To work with office docs like docx, pptx and other formats, Microsoft Office 2010 is the best.
The best part is Microsoft has a free online version called MS Web Apps.


2. Media Player

vlc-media-player



VLC Media Player beats every other media player out there. VLC plays most other media files.
The closest media player taht nearly beats VLC is MPlayer.
However the interface of Mplayer (better known as SM Player) is not as well designed as VLC.

3.Google Chrome

Google Chrome is fast and really fast.

2012 Internet Explorer Firefox Chrome Safari Opera
June 16.7 % 34.4 % 41.7 % 4.1 % 2.2 %
May 18.1 % 35.2 % 39.3 % 4.3 % 2.2 %

The intuitive interface of the browser beats any other app in this category.
Firefox comes a close second!

4. Acrobat Reader

Acrobat Reader is a must if you want to open pdf files. There are other free alternatives like Foxit Reader do not have an easy to use interface.


5. WinRar

The advantage of WinRar is that it can open .rar files as well as .zip files.
Winzip cannot open .rar files.
