ADWARE - MWS
Reviewing 6.07 (Feb 24, 2006)
I like Weather Bug mainly because it included the amount of precipitation when it rains. I haven't found another weather program that does this.

jcs83md: yeah we all forgot that the world's weather changes as FAST as the movie "The Day After Tomorrow" would otherwise suggest.
The weather isn't stock information...its weather. Even if reports in other programs are delayed by anywhere from a few minutes to one hour, you aren't going to be stepping outside completely surprised by what advancements have occured in the weather since. "WTF?!!! THE DEW POINT HAS CHANGED BY 0.1!!! NO! MY WEATHER PROGRAM WAS COMPLETELY WRONG!"... *rolls eyes*
Besides, most people will consult the TV first before consulting a software program.
Yes that may be the old 2003 version, but the 6.06 version (screenshots are available at Softpedia) still contains ads and has a pretty piss-poor interface when compared to Weather1, Weather Pulse or Weather Watcher. Even CRAWLER weather has a better interface.
Softpedia did an in-house review. The few things that stand out are 1) the weatherbug toolbar (which you can choose not to install if you do custom install, however most newbie users stray away from custom install) 2) so many contrastng colors...hard window to keep open, 3) ads, ads, and some more ads. You'd figure that with all the ads in the program that it'd be free, but no, there is a $20 pro version.

Doesn't force you to install adware.. if you're an intelligent computer user.

Busy interface =( Forces you to install adware =(
Weather Watcher is my choice. Nice interface & low-resource use. I'm lovin' it!
