Acme Files

If you are looking for a website which contains application list, but with a good categorization, i would suggest that you visit Acme Files. This site has a well-defined categories, thus helping users to get what they are looking for.

So far, they have 18 categories:
  • Browsers and Plugins
  • Anti-Spyware
  • Audio and Video
  • File Sharing
  • Security and Firewalls
  • CD and DVD Tools
  • Instant Messaging and Chat
  • Anti-Virus
  • Cleaning and Tweaking
  • Desktop
  • File Transfer
  • Compression and Backup
  • Image Editing
  • Office and Productivity
  • Benchmarking
  • Drivers and Frameworks
  • Developer Tools
  • Network and Administration
One good point about Acme is that they claimed to have tight policy about what's going to be placed on the site. This way, it reduces a problematic application being displayed and downloaded by their users. Check this page for more information.

By the way, this site only lists Windows application, so if you are using non-Windows OS, you might be a little bit dissappointed.
