188.8.131.523 Update (Sep 5, 2012)
There is never only one tool, but Corel Painter 12 is coming very close being such an imaginary software. My background is as an professional artist working much with digital art - using as main tool a Lenovo X230 Tablet pc (don't like Mac a bit - sorry you apple eaters).
Corel Painter has tons of options, still it's easy enough just to draw/paint with without opening the manual. It's a stable tool, and the prices from Corel is another reason why I have left all Adobe products out in the cold.
Have used the painter on and off for several years now - now it has become my main artistic tool, so thanks a lot to all the developers behind the Painter.
17.18 (Oct 14, 2010)
Purchased this a while ago, but nearly never used it. Yes, there are a lot of features, but it's extremely clumsy in use. The big plus is that the developer is taking active part in the TB forum, but as an professional artist - I find it more gadgetlike than a tool you enjoy working with.
3.6 Beta (Apr 10, 2008)
First of all, it's a great program - no question about that. Some time since I used it, but for the purpose of translating (or changing text content) in a page without touching any coding - it's the best tool I know.
I don't see it as a real tool for those who master basic coding, but for all who got a website and need to do adjustment in the text themselves - it's a small gem.
Still, BetaNews should update the information as the small gem has in this version transformed itself from being a freeware tool to a 40 USD shareware tool ...
184.108.40.206 Beta (Apr 15, 2007)
Have used Comodo firewall for a time now, and had no problem with it whatsoever. Now I had Comodo AV for 24 hrs, and so far it seems as it's of the same high quality as the firewall. As Saturn1 notes, I see that it's far more friendly on the resources compared to all other AV's I have used. So if it keep on keeping virus away - well then I will rate it with a five star next time round as well (-:
1.0.0 (Feb 23, 2006)
Still miss features that I should expect to be essential in a good shareware version. For the $$, asking 45 dollars for this little tool - that tells a story in itself about the developers. So while its lacking essential features - especially for a shareware version, and then is far too high priced. After testing the version 1, I hit some bottons and uninstalled the previous freeware version I had of Recolored ...

In the end the bottom line will always be, not what is found, but what is fixed. It's not possible to prepare for all possible security-bugs - that's the same with an anti virus program. There will always be new virus, but the mark of a good AV is how fast it's able to find a solution and protection to the new virus. Same with any other software program - browsers being on the top of the list here. How fast does the program developers respond to the attack or a newly discovered open security wall? Personally I don't care who this happen to, IE, FF, Opera or other browser - the bottom line is how fast a solution is available. Firefox has impressed lots of users lately, a fast solution as here is far more impressing in the end than speed or starting time - may this event make the developers prepare even more for coming events like this, and we will see even more new users based on that feature alone!

Concept lost to investment - have we not heard such news before. Still it's sh.. it happened to this good initiative as well. Good to have you out of what became a single-minded investment project. Never forget what created the concept in the first place - get those gray started again - eh? Until then we will await your investment free beta project - LOL

As said in the "applaud" - more than one browser following the standard is needed. Fact is still that a majority use IE, and MS tend to like making own standards. This is not about IE or Netscape, not about Gore or Bush - it's a growing multifaceted, multicultural, multilanguage, multicoloured, multi-experience-level, multiplatform (and so forth) user group looking for the perfect surfboard for the web. It's all changing, Netscape yesterday, IE today - Mozilla tomorrow? Who knows! Remember Netscape6 is open source Mozilla / Gecko development dressed in Netscape and AOL - and it's a good dressing if you ask me (-: Don't forget that Netscape is still so important that people bother to be passionate about the subject (this thread being proof enough for that). For Netscape recycling what they once initiated by give the source code to the Mozilla development, should be fair - and when the result is far more promising than the more stagnant Netscape 4+ - well then it's not bad? Adding that it's applauded as the most standard-compliant browser, that is neither bad? Mozilla / Gecko will take (already have) many forms and developments. The Internet reality still change while you sleep... That Fred Langa find fault in Netscape is not too surprising. Okay he wrote me once proclaiming he had not biased opinions, but that's still his words (absolutely not mine). And it's not bad to find fault in Netscape, that's how they can be solved. Never heard about security problems in IE? They got fixed in the end did they not? Okay new appeared, but when people cry out about a security problem, both Netscape and IE try to fix them, that are how it works. For security problem, the biggest is not in IE or Netscape today, but in Opera who just became adware/spyware supporter in co-operation with Cydoor. Opera shouting about high security and then goes out and sign contract with a spyware company?!?!?! Okay you can get it away by purchase Opera, but I'm a registered user for a long time as it was my main browser until SpywareOpera5 came out. Opera was instantly uninstalled in protest - hope MANY will do the same in share disgust for Opera's new security hole: Coodor spyware software! I just don't support ANY producer going in company with a spyware company - that's security related in my book. So now I use Netscape6 and IE - and I'll bring my hands up for Mozilla in Netscape skin, applauding the fact that WinX users have two good browsers and that I have a good Netscape6 when I switch to Linux. To applaud one need two hands, two browsers and two OS' - at least! - ROTFLMAO

Hi Modemnet: Remember there is quite some free webmail service out here today. But I kind of like the fact that your team is one quite young person ((-: Add to "leave mail on server" a free forwarding service of same mail, and you got a product with a edge (and a new user if that matters). Never forget it take no more time to think big as to think small...
