CDex Comments

Uhg. Bloatware on installer.

about CDex · Dec 2015 · Helpful Not helpful

Got about halfway through the installer when it started asking about adding search bars and other bloatware. I get that they need to pay their bills, but I only caught it because I chose the advanced/custom installation options. Opt-out is fine by me, but I'm not okay with opt-out settings being hidden.

I imagine that the portable version is fine, but instead of checking, I decided it's time to try something new.
