How many apps do you have installed on your machine? And how up to date are they? With new versions of popular software being released all the time, it could practically be a full-time job just trying to keep up with all the changes. And even though some of the changes are just cosmetic, or adding some new "gee whiz" features to your favorite program, others are intended to fix nasty security flaws that may be uncovered from time to time. You certainly don't want to miss that upgrade!

Ninite is a service that helps you keep your machine humming along with the latest version of lots of your favorite applications. Their focus is on the big-name free apps where we spend so much of our time, like the Firefox web browser, Skype Internet phone service, 7-zip archiving tool, and more. It's easy to set up your own custom updater: just select the applications you want Ninite to bring current, click the button, and you get a custom installer that will help to install the latest versions of your apps on your system. And it's designed in such a way that if you run that same installer again in a week or a month, it will check your system again and install any updates that have been released since the last time you ran it. That's certainly convenient.

Ninite is a free service. They can work with both Windows and Linux systems.
