    "Forte Agent hasn't changed much since 2005"

    February 17, 2014   |   By amethyst_igor

    Version: Forte Agent 7.1

    Pros

    Agent is functional. You can email and download binaries with it.

    Cons

    Version 7.2 really doesn't have any new features worth mentioning. The only thing that really changes with each new version is the version number. There has been no attention paid to downloading binaries, which is the main task users will want. If Agent is closed at any time during downloads, for any reason, all download tasks are erased permanently. Agent cannot "remember" tasks. Agent cannot unpack archives and does not know how to handle text files or info files or any other type of file except image files such as .jpg. When messages are highlighted and selected for download, Agent has to think about that for a while, maybe ten or twenty minutes or even longer. During that time, no updates are made to the display, and Agent will not respond to any user input.

    Summary

    The product is rather high-priced for what is offered. The PAN newsreader is superior in many ways and free. PAN can remember download tasks if it is interrupted by power outage, etc. Basically Forte Agent is just a vehicle for antispam patents Forte hopes to make money off. The news subscription is rather overpriced as well.
