BloatWare Hall of Shame
Trillian (Version 3 and Above)
Comment: version 0.8X or 0.7X were good.
Now it's just useless bloatware.
Cpu hog, resource hog. Mouse
stops moving when you load it up
Uses extremely bloaty XML too.
Looks like it came from Toys R Us.
Comment: Banner ads, ugly skin, white
disgusting color, 12 year old smileys
resource hog, opens with Outlook Express
without your authorization. Tries to
be aerodynamic when it should be square.
Doesn't even match Windows XP Toys R Us
Comment: Absolutely disgusting Java code behind
this one. CPU pegs to 100 for several minutes
even if you just move your mouse or press
a key, or sit idle. Has some more features than
MS Office, but overall, extremely unusable
software. Even MS Excel 2000 still loads up
Comment: See open office. SUN steals the code from
volunteers and takes a profit, so they are
basically the same program
Comment: Unbearably slow. Screen feels like it's
locked up even when visiting text based
websites. Some cool features, but basically
an unusable browser. If you have a 10Ghz
processor and all you do is web browsing,
maybe you won't notice (most clueless folk).
Comment: See Mozilla. Netscape steals the code from
volunteers and takes a profit, so they
are similar browsers. Even Internet Explorer
and the partially bloated Opera 8 are better.
Opera 7, Opera 8
Comment: Opera 7.23 is ok. Opera 7.5 and Opera 8
are much too bloated. Opera 6 was fast, but had
DreamWeaver, DreamWeaver MX
Comment: Bloaty software, and bloaty code production. Some nice
HTML editing at times when you need a quikie, but it
also adds bloat to HTML code and hogs up 100 percent CPU.
Why is it that RTF editors never add too much bloat to our
RTF files? Is it HTML that inherently sucks, along with XML?
If people can build parsers for XML and HTML, why can't
they build proper WYSIWYG editors?
