Hi! I'm Szelmat, a Computer Science student. These are the software that essentially couldn't live without. If you haven't already figured it out, I'm using Windows (10).
My number 1 browser of choice. It's insanely fast, secure and packed with features. It's also really good for Web development thanks to its advanced devtools and first-class css grid support. The recent updates bring big changes to the program.
One of my most-used and most-loved tools. This is what I wish Windows Explorer was like. The two panels make file management much much simpler. I also love the shortcuts at the bottom of the window. This software is kind of like Total Commander but completely free.
Easily the best compression/uncomression software. It costs nothing and it would be quite difficult to find a compressed file format which this application cannot uncompress. As an added benefit, it can also compress in the 7z file format which might be the best format for its purpose.
This is the best Bittorent client I've ever used. It's free, open source, and never shows ads. It provides a lot of information about the torrents it's donwloading and I just love the UI. Without a doubt the best torrent client for me.
Hands down the greatest to do app available for free. I supports all major platforms, syncs with you Microsoft account and has many useful features.
Calibre makes it easy for me to manage the books for my ebook reader and quickly grab missing metadata from Google or Amazon. Love it!
This is the program I couldn't live without. I use it for development for all kinds of languages. VS Code replaces most of the IDEs I had to use in the past. Having to learn only one editor for them, which is also lightweight is a big plus.
Even with VS Code available, I still couldn't completely replace Notepad++. It's much more lightweight, and using it to edit test data, json files or even git commit messages makes it much quickier.
When it comes to Android development, there is not any other choice than Android Studio. It has the familiar feel of IntelliJ, and it also supports Flutter as well as drag-and-drop ui editing.
The best Java IDE in the World! It has many features which are amazing but not available in other IDEs, and I also love its interface.
This is the game engine I chose to go with. It's open source, lightweight, and simple to use. I fell in love with it.

Free email application that’s easy to set up and customize - and it’s loaded with great features!.
Sumatra PDF is a slim, free, open-source PDF/DjVu/EPUB/XPS/CHM/CBR/CBZ/MOBI/FB2 viewer for Windows.
