Cyber QuickTip: FileHippo

Is It A Bird? A Plane? No, It’s a Hippo, a FileHippo!

Are you looking for a repository of Open Source, Freeware and Shareware programs? just may be your one-stop shop. Along with a HUGE list of programs, FileHippo provides an update checker that will scan your computer for installed software from their catalog and let you know when there are updates available. One other neat feature is that the site can filter programs to hide Beta versions, shareware programs or both, if you don’t want to be a guinea pig or be exposed to trial software. FileHippo is an extremely popular site, ranking upwards of 3 million US visitors monthly alone. Plus, they have a really cute logo. Check out the link:
