ScribeFire

I have to say I despise the new ScribeFire Next (i.e. ScribeFire 4), particularly it’s UI layout (especially since there’s no option to change it atm. I know, I’ve checked). Worse is the options section doesn’t even have a button to confirm changes, so you have to go recheck it to see if the changes you wanted went into effect. Complete fail.

The part that really pisses me off is it updated to v4 without my input. Unrequested updates are my number one pet peeve with any product regardless of whether its a small blogging app or a major corporate CAD package, particularly with regards to applications on the internet since it is so easy to have malicious code.

I suspect I’m going to look for a new blogging app just on principle for the unrequested update alone. I don’t condone anyone changing anything on my computer without my knowledge. Makes me understand better why Firefox 8 automatically disables third-party apps until users give the go ahead.  May not stop the unrequested update BS going on but still nice to think at least someone seems to get it. As it is I’m waiting for a bit before going to FF8, just to make sure some of the add ons I prefer have had time to update to the newest release of the browser.

Okay, enough useless ranting.
