At work, we recently began using to automate the install of many popular programs, browsers, and plugins.

Ninite allows you to choose from a variety of categories as many different installs as you’d like. Their software automatically chooses the version most appropriate to your installed operating system and silently installs the programs without any accompanying toolbars. It skips any already installed software that is up to date which is a nice time saving feature. There is a pro version but we’ve not investigated what further options it offers as the free versions has more than met our needs.
