Comments on Advanced URL Catalog

I'm not sure if I would use this. Firefox can manage and export all of this.

My immediate feeling - they aren't off to a very promising start.

1. They have decided to have their setup program change the IE (and others?) Home page to be their own portal at jordysoft.net (easy to change back - but highly unethical making such a change without authorisation or informing the user that it would occur).

2. Anyone trying to go to the company/product website (jordysoft.com) - perhaps to learn more or purchase - is also redirected to their shareware download portal. It is like they have pulled down all the blinds and curtains, deadbolted the doors, and ran into a bedroom to hide under the blankets. Note - you can get older versions of their company & product webpage - from the cache on google. etc.

3. I tried even to open online help to work out how the feature: "Advanced URL Catalog creates thumbnail images of your favorite websites." is accessed (still wondering) - yes it will create thumbnails for all of your websites (easier to select from a picture than a name?). Don't bother - online help shuffles you off to their download site... (Their site was working over the past few days - I feel this "change" might just be for GOTD's benefit). http://blog.jordysoft.com/ and http://forum.jordysoft.com/ are still unaffected (and uninfected with any product information)

I just want to look at Advanced URL Catalog - and all Jordysoft wants me to do is to download and look at something else. If they didn't want people to see their software and company in the best possible light - why offer the software then pull out all stops to keep information away from users who want to try the software?

And I thought this might've had some potential - it DID look good, but the company doesn't fill me with a lot of confidence.

A More complete list of features from their webpage - before they "turned it off".

Hm, developer doesn't seem to be a developer at all. Link to the product page gets a redirection to the jordysoft.net portal. Not convincing at all. I'm not goiung to try this, so no thumbs up/down for the program, but definitely three thumbs down for the offer(er) jordysoft.
