No longer seems to bundle crap. I am happy!
It has been my go to for free software for over 10 years.
Avoid using Cnet Download.com, because downloads are bundled with crapware/malware!
Just do a google-search on the subject or read more here:

Disappointed more every year.
CNET Download.com has been my go-to for the past 15+ years for sotware. Over the course of time, they've moved more towards making money than providing a useful, friendly service that also can make money. From forcing the use of their own installer through which to download software, to now not providing a quick easy overview of software at a glance from which to make an informed decision.
Search and select a software on Download.com, then experience the disappointment of not being able to view screenshots, a video, a feature list or anything with enough informative detail to base a do or don't for the download decision.
Be ready to be overwhelmed with advertising to trick you into click everywhere as part of your effort to get informed on your search result.
Such a pity.
I always got there with a adblock on
