    "AOL 9.5. Still offers anonymous browsing, in tabs now"

    May 25, 2011  |   By SteveWaol

    Version: America Online (AOL) 9.5

    Pros

    It allows you to connect to any site without being tracked because it all groes through the AOL proxies. This is great for downloading things and not being tracked. :)

    Cons

    The browser can sometimes be slow, but nothing horrible.

    Summary

    I prefer to use AOL to download files from the internet, with AIM and mail built in, it does what its supposed to.

    4) Difficulty With signing on after being kicked off

    3)

    Summary

    Aol should have beta tested this version of their ISP software...before relasing it to the public....
    Aol also should go back to releasing their software on cd roms,instead of making us go online for their latest software...

    "It's the same old AOL."

    February 10, 2011  |   By madcowellshow

    Version: America Online (AOL) 9.5

    Pros

    It still has the familiar interface that it has had for a long time. It is fairly simple to use and navigate.

    Cons

    Not much has changed in AOL's service for years from my viewpoint.

    Summary

    It is useful software for those who want simple and easy access to the internet rolled up into one package (client, browser, etc.). I find it useful to recommend to those who lack advanced knowledge of navigating the internet, using instant messaging, etc.

    "no reason in the world to use it"

    January 3, 2011  |   By lnwest

    Version: America Online (AOL) 9.5

    Pros

    nothing at all

    Cons

    clunky, old school, for newbies only and then even they should get out after 1 month

    Summary

    bottom line is they have gone from 33 million users on dial up to a couple of million now. They never adapted to high speed and you can't even get their coffee coasters (installation discs) anymore.
    AOL and Blockbuster should merge as equals of a dying breed.
