Software I use

Some people have been asking me what applications I use, so I'll try to list them. I use Windows XP.

Browser & Mail:
- Mozilla
- Mozilla Mail
I dont use Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird since I like the integration of the browser and mailclient into one product. Small stuff like being able to press CTRL+N all over the application to get a new browser window, etc. Eventually I will move to the two birds.

File Management:
- Total Commander (A file manager and FTP manager that rocks)

- UltraEdit (Best editor for Windows ever)

- Microsoft Office
- (The UI in is still to nerdy and there's still missing a lot of stuff compared to MS Office)

- SecureCRT (Who can live without SecureCRT?)
- Bersirc (IRC client. Ok, but not great. Still looking for a nice client other than MIRC)

Instant Messenger:
- Miranda (Multi protocol. Loads of plug-ins. Open Source)

- BSPlayer (Small fast player)
- QuickTime Alternative (Play QuickTime files just without the bloat)
- RealPlayer Alternative (RealPlayer is the worst bloat/ad ware program I know. I would never trust installing it)
- K-Lite Codec Pack (You never need to install another codec to watch a video)
- WinAmp (Still using version 2. Version 3 sucks bigtime)

Remote Access
- Remote Administrator (Used to remote control my PC at work)

- XnView (I used to use ACDSee but converted to XnView since it's free)
- Paint Shop Pro (Never figured out how to use Photoshop)

- 4NT (Command prompt replacement)
- Acrobat Reader
- Sun Java Runtime Environment
- jv16 PowerTools (Fix and optimize Windows)
- Spybot - Search & Destroy (Spyware remover)
- PINs (Passwords manager)

Have you considered using PuTTY instead SecureCRT. It is free and it also supports both SSH and telnet.

Are you sure the link you provide for "secureCRT" is correct? It's leading to, but should'nt it be leading to ??
