DOWNLOAD.COM for the Mac

c|net has added yet another service to its arsenal, DOWNLOAD.COM. This new site is a "source for commercial demos, drivers, and patches, with access to shareware and freeware applications." In addition to search capability, the site offers users a browsable directory with (at present) nine subject categories, from business to utilities. Each category is further divided into several subcategories. The site also offers a beginners tutorial explaining how to download software (Toolkits) as well as brief profiles of notable shareware and freeware authors (Profiles). Although in no way as comprehensive as c|net's SHAREWARE.COM (discussed in the December 22, 1995 issue of the Scout Report), DOWNLOAD.COM's offers a more user-friendly interface to the world of software on the Internet. Note that the level of overlap between products between SHAREWARE.COM and DOWNLOAD.COM is unknown at this time.
