Disappointed more every year.

CNET Download.com has been my go-to for the past 15+ years for sotware. Over the course of time, they've moved more towards making money than providing a useful, friendly service that also can make money. From forcing the use of their own installer through which to download software, to now not providing a quick easy overview of software at a glance from which to make an informed decision.

Search and select a software on Download.com, then experience the disappointment of not being able to view screenshots, a video, a feature list or anything with enough informative detail to base a do or don't for the download decision.

Be ready to be overwhelmed with advertising to trick you into click everywhere as part of your effort to get informed on your search result.

Such a pity.
