We can’t stop mentioning Malwarebytes on this site! As computer hobbyists and enthusiasts, we want to keep our computers safe and secure, so we install a second opinion anti-malware app.

5. Adobe Creative Cloud

Some of us have been using Adobe products for years! I still use the legacy Adobe Fireworks for most of my quick and simple image sizing and editing! Adobe provides us with the best creative software globally, from Photoshop and Illustrator for images to Premiere Pro for video.
