"The AOL of all messengers..."1.5 starson by juntha
Pros: Dummy proof. User friendly.
Cons: New functionalities won't work with Firefox. Come on Billy it's just Email, do we need that much ?
Summary: 15 years ago when we were al discovering the Internet, AOL was a great way to get a decent introduction. But now that more and more people are becoming more familliar with the web, AOL dummy-proof, overly user friendly interface has become useless. Do i need the AOL interface to pop up when I connect to the web ? Nope. Just get over it and let me click Firefox to surf or Thunderbird to check my mail... Do i miss this obnoxious 'You Got Maaaaail !' ? Not really. A simple icon is just fine for me. It s almost embarrassing nowaday to be caught using AOL. LOL
This messenger has the same problem. It s dummy proof. Trying to simplify things with stuff people usually don't need. It s an Email people ! Gmail is simple and do just what needs to be done: Read Email. Do I need all those extra whistles ? nope...
Windows Live doesn't work with Firefox (it does but most new features won't work) and STILL no way to transfert those Emails to another webservice using POP (Gmail does it).
