The site is called “FREEze Frog”, located – as you’ve probably guessed – at Freezefrog(dot)com. All sorts of awesome open source programs are available to download like OpenOffice, 7Zip, Pidgin and more. As the site says, “No signups, no memberships and no tricks. Just point, click, and download the software you want…best of all, they’re all free.”

Free, with a side dish of “additional installs.”

Have at it, OpenOffice!

Wait, Appbundler on the what now?

  1. Looks like a candidate for the blocked web sites list or your Host file. Thank you for the heads up.

    Well, some of our ‘free’ viewers and helper programs come with extras these days too. You just can’t click through an install anymore. You have to read everything and untick the ad-ware.
    It’s possible to have several of those toolbars in your browser running at the same time. My step son proved it, but his browser would barely run. 🙁 Some people don’t have a clue. And that’s what ‘the advertisers’ are counting on.

  2. Yep,

    sounds like that gorilla app that used to take over the computer and send the user to
    anywhere it darned well pleased….

    Yep, exchange one malware for a whole bundle.

    Semper Fidelis,
    Ben South
