ImTranslator (4.5) – Mozilla FireFox Add-on Review

Posted: 14 Sep 2011 12:31 PM PDT

ImTranslator (4.5)

A. Ease Of Use: 4/5 – A very easy and straight forward add-on. But there are still some settings that can get a bit tedious to newer users.

B. Security: 5/ 5 – 100% safe to use

C. Usefulness: 5/5 – Both my life as a member (CSW) and my life on the net would be a lot harder without this add-on. If you ever wondered how to say something in another language. Or even if you just ran into a site and or blog that is not in your own language.

D. FireFox Slowdown: A slight hiccup of a few seconds when you first select the option.

E. Computer Slow Down: Same as above

F. Type Of User I Would Recommend To Use This Add-on: Any level of Firefox user

IObit Smart Defrag (2.2) – Freeware Review

Posted: 14 Sep 2011 12:15 PM PDT

Program Name: IObit Smart Defrag

AA. Cost: Free

BB. Is It Worth That Cost ?: Yes, for sure 100%

1. Ease Of Use – Just click and go. I would personally advise if you do use this program. To try to use the analyze option first before full defrag. So you know how long it may take to run full scan.

1A. Interface - A very snazzy black border with grey interior with 2 main buttons – DEFRAG and ANALYZE (Both offer yet more options via a drop down menu). But there are also 4 tabs. (State (C:),  Automatic Defrag,  Boot Time Defrag and Reports)

2A. Quality Of Analyze Scan Option – Very quick and accurate

2B. Quality Of Defrag Processes - Excellent

2C. Quality Of Defrag Optimization – Hard to tell. But I don't generally have to defrag as option if I do the dual scan

2D. Speed of Scan – Pretty Quick, I find it on par with Auslogic disk defrag

3. Updating – Generally very quick

4. Can You Run Other Programs During A Scan ? Yes

4A. Can You Run Programs During Update ? Not sure, Have not had to update it yet. But all signs point to yes there should be no issue.

5. Is There A Progress Bar? Yes there is a progress bar

6. Can you leave it running and it will run with out issue ? Yes

7. Is There Adware Or Spyware Bundled With It ? Nope, not that I saw

8. Is It Stable ? Yes, very much so

10. How Long Do Scans Take ? The first time you run it could take awhile. After that cut the time at least in half.

Overall I give Smart Defrag (2.2)  a – 4.5 out of 5 – Smart Deafrg again crushes its main competition "Auslogic disk defrag" free with great ease. I highly recommend Smart Defrag to anyone who is sick and tired of the disk defragger built into Windows. And that goes double for Vista users. Smart Defrag is very light on resources safe to use.

Smart defrag also allows for very accurate drive readings (Such as 0.15 % drive fragmentation). Instead of getting stuck with whole number read outs (Such as 1.0% drive fragmentation) That is provided by its competition Auslogic disk defrag.
