Ever wish you could test out an application or even an operating system without taking the time to download and install it first? It turns out you can. Click2try is a web site that lets you take about around 50 desktop applications and 3 Linux distributions for a spin from the comfort of your web browser.

You'll need Java and a relatively modern browser in order to run the applications. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and Google Chrome all work. You can try any application for free without registering. If you want to save your sessions you'll need to sign up for a free account. You can also purchase a subscription if you want to access an application for an extended period of time or run more than one application at a time.

Click2try's catalog includes Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, and CentOS Linux distributions and applications including Chandler, Filezilla, OxygenOffice, WordPress, Drupla, and Joomla.
