What do you use to update your software? FileHippo.com Update Checker

You cannot delete your own topics in this board.

I have quite few programs to keep track of, and I prefer doing things myself instead of trusting other solutions, so I include a visit on filehippo.com and freewarefiles.com every day - along with the other site I visit. (-www-)


Seconded !!! I use FileHippo, SoftVisia, Softpedia, and some other sites too (-www-) - → red ;D

I check manually from the manufacturer’s website a few times each year.

I use WebMon available here !
Put in the web page to monitor, tell it every how many minutes/day’s to check the page.
Optional you can filter on text like “latest version…”.

And there you go, always the updates straight from the vendor.
I made it a habit to put every application that i install to also enter in WebMon so i keep up2date.

The only site I use to check for software updates, etc is filehippo.com But I also use other sites… Filehippo is my main one and I only download software from there unless otherwise.


The Software is updated. The Software is great.

filehippo is a simple website, No Reviews, Straight to the business which I like. I go to other sites for reviews on certain software if I want too. So instead of seeing what a site is about like download.com, news, etc… Filehippo is like “Ok, Here are the latest updates, here are the software and its categories, go for it” Which ME PERSONALLY, Like.
