The Latest ain’t the Greatest: finding an old version of a program that’s better than the latest

Following on from the note in the blog posting referring to Copernic Desktop Search, sometimes you would prefer to download an older version of an application.  To use’s slogan: “because newer is not always better”.

There are various reasons for this, for example: OldApps

  • the older version is free while the latest is payware.  In this case you might find the version that you’re looking for at Last Freeware Version
  • the older version has more features or is less CPU/RAM power hungry, or is more usable, or has less bugs, or is smaller than the latest version.  In this case go to or and download the version you want.
