Where is your website going?
(A few thoughts from a different source.)
All about web, multimedia and graphic design.
These items are (at time of writing) freeware - that means you can download and use them legally and free of charge.
The descriptions are from the sites of the products themselves or from freeware sites that specialise in such programs. For myself, I neither offers support nor recommendations about any of these programs so you install and use them at your own risk.
They are here as a free service to the internet going public.
If you find these programs of value - let their authors know, likewise if you require support or wish to report a bug in a particular package.
If you find dead links or programs that do not perform as claimed, let me know and the program will be removed

Why Pay ?
My point is this - some people develop software for free as a method of drawing attention to their abilities or in the hope of launching a "paid" version at some later date that will make them money in due course. Often these may be good products deserving of any support we can and maybe even a contribution via Pay Pal.
Free sparkly cursors and toolbars for your browsers do not fall into this category are likely to put your computer on a permanent go-slow and make your anti-virus go loopy.
