Download Rant

OK, so I use Orca Browser. It's not perfect, but it has some features I like, and I can still keep my AdBlocker extension.

They offer me a new version.



Yes, thank you. I always appreciate free upgrades. Click



What, another button to click? I thought you already told me about this. Yes, I want it, thank you. Click



Yarg! For the love of Mogg!

Sheesh. This happens more times than I can count. Hey, software people - When I click on the "download" button, just send me the flapping file!

Are you sure
are you really really sure?
I'm not sure you're sure, I can feel it in your keystrokes
Now are you SURE?

Oh that's it, I knew you weren't really interested

Are you sure? yes
Are you *really* sure?

That's about the only time I want to see this kind of prompting...

Ahh, a VISTA convert
are you really converted?
Are you sure you want to stay with Vista?

Tried to find my Dilbert strip where the computer decides for him that he needs new software and starts "making space on hard drive"...

And that only does it once.

I've noticed downloads are getting harder and harder to access everywhere. What is wrong with this universe, where illegal downloads are a click away, and legal downloads are hidden behind fifteen pages of click-throughs?

Nope! After all those clicks, it sent him a copy of Internet Exploder.

That's one reason I prefer Firefox or Google Chrome, they both take care of updating themselves.
(Google Chrome even under Linux, actually. And now the developer version includes theme support!)

You are in a maze of twisty little download buttons, all looking alike. :-P

Ahaha! First time anyone has ever

a) referenced "adventure" and
b) spontaneously swapped in one of my emoticons

all at once.

[Edit] Waitaminnit, I'm not seeing the "thpt" icon at LJ. OH, oh, I see what's happening. I've replaced my default emoticons in Eudora with the Old Wolf smileys. When the notification of your comment came through in the email client, it replaced :-P with Haha! Good one on me!
