I’m not fully agree with the list above. For example, many people found that IrfanView’s interface is horrible – Xnview or Picasa would do better in this category. Also Free Zonealarm was the top of the list about a year ago, (free) Kerio would perform better. Also, I would suggest Flashget rather than Download Accelerator Plus since it is really free. Oh, can you live without 7-zip and MSN?

Opera is surely secure than Firefox.

Perhaps :) But still Firefox is and will always be the best browser ever made :D
