Install multiple free and popular applications at once with Ninite

Once you have installed Windows or purchased a new computer and now it’s time to install the programs to meet your basic needs. Such programs are browsers, media players for video and music, word processors, file managers, media content, etc. To do this, you have to go to every website of each application to download the installation file and then get it installed on your computer.

Oh, quite time-consuming for something so simple, right? Wouldn’t be easier to choose which programs you want to install and do this automatically without getting involved with all this “fuss”?

Here comes Ninite that fulfills this. And it does well.

With Ninite, you simply choose which applications you want to install on your computer and everything else happens automatically, both downloading and installing them. This saves you valuable time to deal with something more essential.

What’s happening in the background as long as you wait?

Ninite undertakes to download all installation files from the official websites without using “third party” providers. Automatically downloads 64- or 32-bit versions of programs depending on your Windows version. Also, depending on the Windows language, it installs the corresponding versions. For example, if you have Windows in Greek, then it will install the Greek version of a program (as long as it’s available).
