about FlashGet Jun 2011

Not sure about the classic version, but 1.96 was the best received of all the versions. After that though, the program ended up under some unreliable management which turned it into adware and made it annoying to use. I can't speak for the 3.x versions' effectiveness since I couldn't stand the GUI long enough to download with it.

Does anyone know why they offer 3 different versions to download (3.x, 1.96 and classic)?
