Title says it all. Sometimes I can't find a driver on the product manufacturer's website, so I need to download from a third party site. Which one is the best/safest to use?

The best and safest is direct from the manufacturer.
Why would you think someone else has a better one than the people who made the device?

Did you even read the thread? I said sometimes I can't find drivers on the manufacturer website.

Yes I did read it.
What driver are you looking for that the people who made it do not have it?
 
Yes I think he did sometimes support for a product ends and there are no driver updates for it so there are people who mod the drivers to try to make them work beyond there EOL .... And sometimes these are not safe so it is best to stick with the manufacturer for all your driver needs if they don't have one there is no update or need for one.
