"About time!!!!"

September 15, 2011  |  By dmcar88233

 |  Version: AOL Desktop 9.6

Pros

I have found it now Loads quicker and runs faster and best of all, a new voice.

Cons

I still think there is some room for improvement as it still uses up a lot of memory and runs slow if things are running in the background like your anti-virus.

"Do not download. Do not install. Do not use."

June 21, 2011  |  By kdbramwell

 |  Version: AOL Desktop 9.6

Pros

None that I can see.

Cons

-Requires a tremendous amount of ram
-Slow
-Does not display certain websites correctly
-Runs even when it's not open

Summary

As a computer technician, I absolutely do not recommend any version of AOL, period. When people hire me to speed up their computer the first thing I look for is AOL.

It is a resource hog. It runs on startup (because AOL recognizes its program is so slow, it "pre-loads" it when your computer first turns on). I've seen it use as much as 400k ram in the task manager, and I cringe.

AOL is not user friendly. After logging on it pops up at least three windows- a "Welcome" window, a "Search" window, and AIM-- and you don't have the option of changing that. The font size cannot be changed either-- you have to change the resolution on your monitor to get the words any bigger. Certain versions don't even allow hyperlinks in emails. I've seen situations where plugins, such as Flash, don't work in AOL but work just fine in Internet Explorer.

Worst of all, AOL promotes ignorance. People who use AOL do not truly know how to surf the web; they only know how to surf AOL. I've seen this with my clients who are senior citizens. They think that if they stop using the AOL browser they won't be able to access their email. Then I show them that same email is available in Internet Explorer by going to AOL.com. They are dumbfounded. Similarly, they do not know how to truly browse the web, since they use "keywords" instead of actually typing www.(website).com.

I do not recommend AOL for anyone. Just use the browser your computer came with, or you'll be paying me $50/hr to "speed up" your computer
