    "Ugh every new version gets worse"

    May 14, 2005  |   By brbubba

    Pros

    This product used to work nicely and the banner ads in the client were bearable.

    Cons

    This latest version is bloatware. Trying to install this thing cut my whole Internet connection out as it tries to pre-configure itself with your firewall. In addition it does install adware!!! Don't bother with this as you can get the same thing for free from sourceforge, its called truedownloader.
