Topic: 3.7Mb installer is excessive?< Next Oldest | Next Newest >

Posted: Mar. 27 2006,08:00

My conversion from Opera 8 to Netscape 8 worked well so I just wanted to say thanks.

My only complaint would be that the 3.7Mb installer is excessive given that the actually program files are only 450k. You should provide a simple .zip for people who don't want the installer.

I'm glad you like the program.

And yes, I don't like the size of Windows Installer packages either, but to provide the most simple and non-confusing download, I offer only this package today.

Luckily, bandwidth is becoming a smaller concern for people every day, making this tradeoff better too.
