    "Does it's job"

    February 24, 2012   |   By slix19

    Version: HostsMan 3.2.73

    Pros

    Small, does it's job, easy to use.

    Cons

    None really, but default backup option might be good rather than unchecked by default plus ability to run automatically in Vista/7.

    Summary

    Does it's job well. Might be nice to have a compatible version running in the background in Vista/7 (needs admin rights to run so can't run properly at startup). If you update manually now and then though it's fine.

    Maybe the SHOUTING 'bookerking' ticked one of the ad blocking options - these are reported to block some sites falsely. Also if you have a customised hosts file for some reason (web dev, ad servers, corporate) and you don't choose backup and the 'Merge' option it will cause problems.

    This is down to the knowledge of the user though, not a fault of the software as such - it does it's job and pretty well. May be backup by default would be good rather than an option, an perhaps a warning?

    Certainly not justified calling it 'HORRIBLE'.
