Ninite the Magic Updater

Every so often there is a tool that really stands out as something that everyone should have or use.

Ninite is one of those tools.

Ninite is an updating tool that allows you to select the programs you want to install/update. Once all the tools have been selected, you will get a small executable file that contains the information for the programs you want. Just double-click the file and let Ninite do the work.

Ninite will automatically find the latest version of the software that is compatible with your system and do one of three things.

  1. Install it - when it is not there
  2. Update it - when it is an older version
  3. Skip it - when it is already up to date
The nice thing is that you do not have to go to all the websites individually and download the updates and click through all the screens for each program. Ninite does this for you! It will also automatically decline all of the extra add-on garbage that can often be found on free programs like flash and java.

I think this is really worth trying out. Here is a short video to show you how easy it is.

Have an awesome day!
