Maybe it's just me. I could be ignorant.

"The software will run faster for you"
Log Deleter runtime
Firewall Bypass runtime
Log UnDeleter runtime
Unhide Files runtime

How exactly do these run faster? Or am I correct in thinking it's a waste of points?

Unhide would run unhide processes faster, for what it's worth.  Other than that, like gs said, any process involving time with that software will be faster (most notably research)

So automatically your research in specialized softwares is 10% faster, which can then be increased.

 The description implies that the software itself would be faster. Just seems like a poor definition. Perhaps a slight text change to reflect the true nature of the ability would be better. I.E., "software research and usage are faster".

 Thanks anyways!

Emi explained it as any timers related to these software types will be reduced by that amount. I can plug in 12 hours on certain research tasks and end up only having to wait 9 hours for instance. This works well for the time dependent processes such as hide, encrypt, decrypt, password break, etc., but it also saves tons of research time.

There may be changes in the future which will help it all make more sense as well.  19

I've noticed recently too, that even with 20% on the password break ability, the timer always starts from 1 hour. I could have swore the ability was supposed to shave time of that.
