It was sad to see the famous Software blog Download Squad shutting down. I have to admit that it was one of my favourite blogs and the reason I have been regularly reading blogs on my RSS reader is because of the presence of Download Squad. Although no one can match up to Download Squad’s potential, there are some blogs which are very similar and awesome as well! I’d recommend you check them out.
CNET’s Download.com has been the go-to resource for software downloads for most of us and their download blog is obviously about software, reviews and information about updates to popular software. Their approach is pretty similar to that of Download squad.
GHacks is another interesting software blog. I enjoy reading their opinions on the same things Download Squad deals with everyday. If you love opinionated posts about software – this is the place to go.
Softpedia – a download site similar to that of CNET’s Download.com has blogs with news and reviews from different channels i.e., Windows, Mac, Linux, Games and more. The posts in Softpedia deal with software and I think it’s pretty similar to Download Squad.

Update: Didn’t know that Download Squad bloggers came together to start a new blog. Check out Browser Scene, a blog about browsers by the same writers.
