There's nothing better than getting good stuff for free. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, it sure feels great! Well, Google is doing their part to make you feel great with the introduction of an excellent collection of free software they call the Google Pack. Download all the programs or just those you're interested in, and if you already have any of the titles, only updates will be installed.
The Google Pack includes:
Google Earth - this phenomenal mapping program that lets you see any location on earth in map or satellite view.
Picasa - a full-featured photo editor and organizer.
Google Pack Screensaver - this tool will enable you to turn photos from your personal collection into a screensaver.
Google Desktop - with this desktop helper, you can search your hard drive for e-mail, files, and other data.
Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer - a multi-purpose tool that allows you to perform a search from any web page. It has a pop-up ad blocker, highlighter, translator, spell-checker, and much, much more.
Mozilla Firefox with Google Toolbar - this web browser is a great alternative to Internet Explorer. It offers tabbed browsing and many other excellent features, and is more secure than Internet Explorer.
