The NET Bible has always been available as a free download. I prefer to use the NET Bible in HTML format because it is so convenient to use its hyperlinks to go to a specific reference or to read a footnote. You may need to register with a username and password on the NET Bible website to download the NET Bible, but there will be no charge for your download.
The entire TNIV can still be downloaded as a PDF file.
The ISV is available as Microsoft Word or PDF downloads, as the complete NT and 40% of the OT (Exodus, First Samuel, Ruth, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Psalms 1-65, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Daniel, and all 12 Minor Prophets).
Several recent Bible versions are available as free download modules for viewing within the free e-sword program, including the ESV, The Message, GNB (TEV), CEV, ISV (NT only in e-sword), GW (God's Word), and WEB. E-sword is a very easy program to use. Its interface is very user-friendly, something I appreciate. In addition, you can download the following versions and read them within e-sword if you pay a usage fee: NASB, Amplified. The NET Bible is now formated for e-sword. There is a free download version with limited footnotes available on the NET Bible website.
It is possible, although labor-intensive, to download the entire HCSB for free. I have downloaded a large amount of the HCSB by viewing and saving an entire chapter at a time on the HCSB online webpage.
The Source New Testament is now available as free PDF downloads of individual books (but without the useful footnotes, except for 1 Timothy).
Each book of the NT which has been translated so far in the Better Life Bible is available as a free download from its website.
UPDATE: The ERV (Easy-to-Read) version, originally designed for deaf audiences, is available for free download as PDF files of individual books of the Bible. (HT: Chris Heard)
