This is the fourth major incarnation for thriftmac, which started with the simple idea that Mac users could use a central place to find free software. The downloads here are meant to be free of gimmicks. Apps are not included unless you can freely download them to your Mac and use all their features without restrictions.
As the site has grown over the years, the biggest challenges are making sure these apps still exist, can still be used, and remain free. If you come across broken or out-of-date links, please get in touch.
