Favored Freeware: Cross-Platform Roundup

I’m out of new Favored Freeware entries for now, so I have decided to list off all of the cross-platform Favored Freeware applications in this week’s entry. Developing a cross-platform application means a lot. It means that you, the developer(s), are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty in order to please a much broader audience by providing your application(s) for more than one platform. As of now, my cross-platform Favored Freeware applications are: Audacity, Celestia, Firefox, iTunes, Mactracker, NVU, QuickTime, RSSOwl, Thunderbird, Tux Paint, VLC Media Player, and Web Developer Extension.
