FileHippo.com is a software archive where you can get the newest software. It is used/linked to by many developer which implies that this site is trustworthy.
I dont get how FileHippo can have updates of software like Java faster than the original website. For instance: the Javacheck on the original site tells me that I have the newest version:
While FileHippo tells me:
This is one of many examples (Pidgin Internet Messenger offers the newest update later then filehippo too).
Maybe they have a deal with FileHippo? Maybe FileHippo scans their website for nightlybuilds/just released content in the forums?
At first I thought that filehippo could be a scam/virussite but it is promoted by many sites/developers.
