On typical home computer, I need to make sure the following are installed and up to date:
- Google Chrome
- Adobe Air
- Adobe Reader
- Microsoft Security Essentials
Before Ninite, this was a task that would take an hour or so of going to each program’s website, downloading, and manually installing them one by one. With Ninite, you can choose them all from a list, download a single file, and install them all without any intervention. It amounts to one minute of work and 20 minutes of waiting. Periodically, you can just use the original installer file and it will update all programs to the most current version.
