about XWidget Sep 2013

The installer has advertisements for optional softwares using Installmonetizer's (www.installmonetizer.com) software.
Some people may find this annoying, and/or a security/privacy risk (Like me).

Additionally, at uninstall it opens www.babylon.com, another annoying (and rather suspicious) thing.

See this post on their forum.

If you want to use this piece of software, choose the portable version.
