The Problem: 
Need to find a tool or program to do something.

The Theory:
Google search to find a couple different options, look them over, find the best one to download, use and everything works.

The Reality:
Google search to find 20 links to 5-year old blog pages full of ads and sponsored 'reviews' along the lines of  "Top 5 Tools that Do this Thing", 10 pages of sites that basically collect freeware/shareware programs in huge, complicated, tiny lists full of ads and popups and you have to click past a dozen screens just to get to the option to download something - which then tries to get you to download their proprietary download tool to get this one thing you think might work, and then you finally get a few of them to try and they ALL try to install a dozen 'search bars' and 'useful' programs which are just malware and you never actually find something that works and doesn't install a ton of stuff behind the scenes.

Welcome to the Internet, people.
