    "noxious garbage"

    March 26, 2011  |   By csttte

    Version: eSnips 1.105

    Pros

    I got the file I wanted, but only by installing and running this thing in a "quarantine" virtual machine I have set up specifically to test bombs like this for malware and virii. I'm glad I didn't run it on my actual computer.

    Cons

    I've tried my hardest not to compare this thing to AIDS, but I guess I just failed. Other reviews describing what exactly it does to your system and personal data is accurate.

    Summary

    I was moved to write this review not because of the program itself. Trash like this is business as usual for the net.

    What alarms me is the head-scratchingly high editor's ratings. This sort of oversight reflects poorly on what I've always viewed as a somewhat reliable guide to whether I'm downloading a useful tool or a live grenade.

    I didn't let this thing damaged my system or the integrity of my personal data, but it has sadly damaged my faith in this and other sites to warn users about dangerous software.

    "This is not a software. This is a malware."

    October 17, 2010  |   By mechgouki

    Version: eSnips 1.105

    Pros

    Nothing. If you consider unauthorized modification to your Firefox and Internet Explorer browsers' settings having everything changed, such as your homepage and your default search, to everything about Esnips, then yes, this would be a con.

    Cons

    My personal experience, the download that I tried could not work. In short, I got nothing out of this.

    But that's the least of my concerns.

    This is not just a software, this is a MALWARE!

    Summary

    What this software does is nothing short of malware. It does not seek your permission, and it changes most of your settings in Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers. These changes include the starting homepage, search sites, etc.

    I guess they forgot to include the fine print: "Warning, software will attempt to take over your life."

    If I wanted such an intrusive change on my browsers, I would have asked for it.

    In short, if you like a software that does unauthorized and intrusive changes to your browers, than go for this.

    If not, I suggest you steer clear, and never touch it. Whatever Esnips or their software promised you, IT IS NOT WORTH IT!

    "This **** wants access to FF passwords & has SPYWARE"

    October 4, 2010  |   By esnipssucks

    Version: eSnips 1.105

    Pros

    Nothing. Its just a piece of crap without a proper uninstaller which wants to communicate with their servers to pass on secretly the private data from users system and also the bookmakrs, passwords and other data from Firefox and IE. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.

    Cons

    Everything is ****. PURE ****. SPYWARE and WANTS ACCESS TO YOUR BANKING PASSWORDS AND READS YOUR REGISTRY AND SENDS TO eSnips. THIS PIECE OF CRAP ***********.

    Summary

    Nothing. Its just a piece of crap without a proper uninstaller which wants to communicate with their servers to pass on secretly the private data from users system and also the bookmakrs, passwords and other data from Firefox and IE. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF YOU VALUE YOUR PRIVACY AND SECURITY.

    "ESNIPS has stopped users downloading songs...."

    December 7, 2007  |   By rakeshganju

    Version: eSnips 1.105

    Cons

    Hello!

    I am sure what has been done in ESNIPS is affecting many of the other users in esnips. About 80% of the users of esnips have been downloading the songs and if the same is disabled then what remains the difference between esnips and smashits or anyother online site.

    So, please try to get esnips back the same way as it was couple of days back.

    If you think I am not speaking sense then try to go for voting for the same and lets go with the results.

    Regards

    Rock

    "Great Prgram, except for beta limitations"

    January 4, 2007  |   By ryanseeley

    Version: eSnips 1.105

    Pros

    Great program. Works easily, even providing for use with right mouse click.

    Cons

    I would like to see the beta restrictions lifted (i.e. individual 50 MB file size limitation and 500 total files per upload). Also, it would be great to see it have a network drive client allowing drag and drop functionality.
