  1. Review - avast! Free Antivirus

    9.0.2018 (Apr 18, 2014)

    Its metro-like UI sucks.

  2. Review - ĀµTorrent for Windows

    3.4.1.30768 (Apr 4, 2014)

    A bloated ad platform.

  3. Review - Mozilla Firefox (Beta)

    29.0 Beta 4 (Apr 2, 2014)

    @Monkey_Punch:

    It's not about theme.

    They pretty much totally broke my workflow - I cannot have my add-ons icons where I currently have it. I cannot have my UI the way I have it Firefox

  4. Review - Mozilla Firefox (Beta)

    29.0 Beta 3 (Apr 1, 2014)

    The worst thing that has happened to Firefox's UI.

    It has become yet another ... Chrome clone.

    F*ck you Mozilla.

    Power Firefox users HATE you. Maybe it's time to abandon your failed experiments and join SeaMonkey.

  5. Review - Kaspersky Anti-Virus (Beta)

    2015 15.0.0.313 Beta (Mar 24, 2014)

    A resource hog.

    The last good version was Kaspersky 2013.

  6. Comment - This IE9 graph speaks for itself (in 93 languages)

    2015 15.0.0.313 Beta (May 26, 2011 - 9:17 AM)

    IE9 is a nice and fast browser, alas it doesn't have a built-in or even official adblock extension. The most famous free extension is Simple Adblock for IE (which I install on people's computers) hides ads _after_ downloading them and it's not fully compatible with Firefox Adblock+ filtersets.

    Its second most important problem is that most malware writers target it, however monthly Microsoft updates are absolutely not enough to keep you safe (even if you have an AV solution installed).

  7. Comment - USB Immunizer: Last defense against auto-run malware?

    2015 15.0.0.313 Beta (Apr 29, 2011 - 3:22 PM)

    Windows XP, Vista and 7 now all include an update which completely disables autorun abilities for removable devices/storage (except for CD/DVD/BD disks).

    I don't see why anyone needs this software.

  8. Comment - Technology's most blatant design copycats

    2015 15.0.0.313 Beta (Apr 1, 2011 - 4:46 PM)

    The same doesn't mean they actually copied one another's interface. Tabbed interface is very handy (no one has come with anything better) and all browsers are meant to browse the Web.

    Following your logic all text editors (not office suites) have almost the same interface. Why? Because they are all meant to edit text.

  9. Comment - Apple's future without Steve Jobs won't be as bright

    2015 15.0.0.313 Beta (Jan 18, 2011 - 3:03 AM)

    Steve Jobs didn't himself create iPhone, iPads and all other devices Appled is famous for. He approved and directed his designers and engineers efforts in creating devices which conquered the market.

    And no, I don't think he's irreplaceable. Don't make God out of him.

  10. Comment - Skype experiences global outage

    2015 15.0.0.313 Beta (Dec 23, 2010 - 8:05 AM)

    All the talk about 'supernodes' seems like a total BS for me.

    It seems like they have a totally different major problem which they cannot for some reasons reveal.
