At Tucows, we take great pride in our collection of free downloads! Earlier this year, Tucows made the resolution to ensure that the 40,000+ listings in our software libraries would be kept up-to-date with accurate information and outgoing links, as well as the latest file versions. In keeping with that resolution, we analyze our Top 10 listings with the most downloads weekly, and we manually update the Top 200 Downloads regularly throughout the year as well. Additional steps are taken every day to archive older listings, remove unsupported software and fix broken links when we find them. Every cow-rated software on our site has been thoroughly tested and fairly reviewed by a real person. What’s more, every file Tucows hosts has been scanned for trojans, viruses, malware and the like. Is it any wonder that millions of users around the globe have come to trust Tucows as their source for downloads, tutorials and reviews?
