Several years back I thought this was the best tagging app around. But it fails to address my single biggest issue: setting "Album Artist" tags, and despite numerous requests in his forums, the developer steadfastly ignores the issue.
Add to that the sloppiness of the code, such as incorrect data placed in the Windows Installer database (claiming to be a generic "MFC Application"), and I get the impression that the application does what the developer needs it for, and he's not really interested in developing any further.
Since my needs and his have diverged, so goes my rating of the application.

Contrary to previous "reviewer", Maxthon DOES have a built-in adblocker. And if you think you need a browser that runs on 3 O/Ses with the same configuration, you've got bigger headaches than deciding what browser to run.

This is not freeware. From the web site:
"R19 Software Company (R19 Software) hereby gives you a non-exclusive license to use the software FirePanel XP (the Software). For evaluation, the license is granted, and is time-limited. For registered release you have to pay a license fee, by following instructions provided at: http://www.router19.org/software.aspx "
Since this fails the criteria of "freeware" entirely, I must give a rating of 1.
UPDATE in response to criticism above. As shareware, it might be great, I don't know, I was rating it as what it claimed to be. If Notepad claimed to be a word processor, would you rate that good just because it was a good notepad? No, you rate it based on how well it achieves its goals. This claimed to be freeware, and did not achieve that promise. Hence it fails in delivering its promise.
Anyway, other readers need to know that it's not really free. How do you post that, when the web site forces a rating?

This is listed as adware, but I know of no ads. This does a fair job for most disks. However, a few come out with garbled sound. For those that do work, though, this is much faster than any other process I've used and yields pretty good results.

> "For someone talking about Apple using Cisco's property," he told IDG, "actually they're infringing on copyright themselves. So it's just a double standard."
Well, yes. On the one hand, there's trademark law, and on the other hand, copyright. These are two separate areas of law, and two separate standards. (which doesn't make it right)
