Free online file sharing sites are nothing new. Of course, it's always hard to tell how effective a free site is. But if you take the time to check out the comments or ratings for a particular file sharing site, you'll see some of the most prestigious and well-known sites out there. So it makes sense to look at the TextWrangler website to see if it's truly free of spyware. You can use a free software to check if a certain website is free or not. You can usually find this software in the software section of your favorite search engine. It will be on a "test" or trial version, but once you're signed up, you should be able to download and run the free software.
When you install the software and run it, you'll be asked whether you want to run a scan against the TextWrangler website. The scan is supposed to show whether or not there is spyware, adware, or malware on the site. If there is any spyware, the software will alert you to it and give you the details on how to remove it. When the software finds the spyware, you can click the "Scan Now" button. Or you can click the "Uninstall Now" button if you do not want that spyware on your computer.
Although this software is definitely a lot cheaper than most other programs that claim to be free, there is nothing to be concerned about. There is no spyware on the website, and no need to remove any files if you don't want to. However, when you download any software from the internet, make sure that you're downloading from a trusted source.
