Today, we're delighted to announce that TechRadar now has a dedicated software downloads channel where you can grab a wealth of brilliant free programs.

You'll find the channel filled with essential roundups of all the best programs to download, compiled by TechRadar's expert writers, so if you are looking for the best media player, best free antivirus or even the best browser then they're just a few clicks away.

You'll also find the latest versions of popular programs such as Chrome, Firefox, OpenOffice, CCleaner and more.

Simple choices

Simply choose the program you want, click the download button and the download will begin, and our content delivery system will give you the fastest download rate.

This is just the first stage of what we plan to build into a comprehensive download site with a fully searchable database of programs which will help you find the perfect piece of software for your needs.

We've already got the most popular programs available, but the site will soon be stuffed full with not only free software, like Google's fantastic Chrome browser, but also trial programs, demos and more.
