Free-Loops.com provides a massive library of sound effects and loops. (over 8 thousand), that can easily be downloaded using their online interface. They also offer a donate and download feature, but there is no real reason to do this unless you just feel compelled.
There is a download button
that is located on each sounds page. The audio auto loads when you load that particular sounds unique page, but we prefer to browse by the drop down menu function.

They have a very nice looking site, and they even take request. The site seems to load fast, and clean.
What makes this site special is its attention to detail and the quality of the sound effects. These are sounds that would normally cost you thousands of dollars to license and use, but here they are free under the license of public domain, or creative commons.
