    "What were CNET editors thinking?"

    August 4, 2011  |   By therev


    It's needed to play some video formats. It's free. It doesn't have viruses or eat your dinner when your back is turned.


    It hogs resources.
    For years qttask has inserted itself into my startup folder - resisting many attempts to disable it.
    It isn't as good as other players.
    It's foisted on us by Apple.


    Perhaps I've been a bit harsh with two stars - but why did CNET give it five? Other players are much more user friendly and less intrusive. For all Apple's complaints about Flash, their own software isn't exactly peace, love and happiness ...
