For many users, the killer feature is the ISP Restrictions screen. There, you can tell BitMeter your ISP's monthly limit and request an alert when you approach it. An included calculator helps you

Free - Giveaway of the Day

Giveaway Of the Day is a convenient initiative allowing you to get the best commercial software titles - for free. The main object of the site is for the readers to sample the site’s sponsors’ offerings. You get free “pro” versions of software of Premium Booster, Advanced Windows Care and stuff. You’ll be given one copy of the software free everyday.

Although you get these licensed softwares for free, you cannot update the software and cannot claim tech support either. You must install and register the software on the same day. They also give away some small games like the “Brave Dwarves Pack” everyday. Besides there is a great forum where they have a list of freeware alternatives for essential software. There’s no registering on the site. Just open the site and start downloading.

During the last December days the site will repeat the best giveaways of the past year. These programs won the best ratings from users and gained the greater number of downloads and unique visitors on their giveaway day.
