    New! AO Downloads

    In case you missed it last week, and the site-wide announcement expires before you're made aware, please have a look at our new Download Section. Details below, for posterity

    Like our recent AO Tutorials revamp, we've reworked (rebuilt actually) the AntiOnline Download area. You can reach it directly at:

    http://downloads.antionline.com

    The new section is built to handle submissions better (still approved by us) and will be updated regularly. There are also sorting options (name, date, rating) along w/ a search function to help you find what you're looking for as the index grows and generally make things easier to navigate.

    Don't worry, the old downloads section is still accessible here and it's been renamed Downloads Archive.

    We got the ball rolling, now it's your turn. Encourage software makers and your fellow developers to submit their security software. As always, we welcome your comments/suggestions.

    Personally, I love the huge half-page ad running down the side. It ads character. AO's all about getting money for JupM now... no wonder I don't come here much any more. Along with many other older members. /me shrugs. Maybe I'm crazy.

    You mean you had not notice that this place was a real un-organised, non-professional, piece of slop before this? It has always been like this... but I've been saying it for awhile now, with every change made to the site the worse it seems to get.

    You should make the logo more open like in the downloads section of the site by getting rid of "enterpriseITplanet.com's" portion of the logo... most of the ownership of the site is already announced at the bottom of the page. Someone should also do something about how all the blue coloring which is counter acting with the older play-doh'-container look and feel of the site.

    Hmmm... I dunno about that comment... Why is it "my turn"?

    You created a centralized place that people can submit their product... But let's look at what you _did_.....

    1. You created a place that free/shareware authors can submit a product
    2. They submit the product with the link to it
    3. I visit the download area and decide to download a product
    4. The link I click is to the submitters site,
    5. I use his bandwidth to d/l the product.....

    Some questions.....

    1. If this was truly a _resource_ why wouldn't you mirror the product?

    2. You have more bandwidth than the average free/shareware author..... if the product is acceptable to you, (per your initial speech about being able to change or reject anything), then why wouldn't you give the author that help?

    3. What does this "service" offer over and above my searching AO for "a program that does xxxxxxxx"?

    4. If I'm not sure what to search on what is the point of it being ordered _only_ by submission date?

    I dunno.... I think you just spent a lot of time creating a "feature" that is a step back in some ways and certainly is one that will be less used than a simple search that comes with recommendations by people that have used the product and can comment on it.

    The "big guys" in the field like Fyodor etc. are not going to waste their time putting the quality products in there.... They don't have the time....

    It seems like I could submit NMap on fyodor's behalf.... But that would be wrong.... and it isn't my job in this world.....

    I fail to see what you tried to achieve here.... I think programming time could have been better spent....

    But that's only my $2......
    Don\'t SYN us.... We\'ll SYN you.....

    I bet that if AntiOnline would start hosting 4,000 GB of free pr0n for you guys to download, you would still complain.

    Microburn > you have Google ads on your site... hypocrite And so does anotherlamesite.com, which takes half an hour to load...

    TheSpecialist > I fail to see how JUPM claims to have "such a large hold over" the programs...

    phernandez: Sorry, no offense man.. but the new downloads sections overall look and appeal sucks (especially the bottom portion). Just giving you some feedback, alot of the people I work with agree by the way that the overall look is quite ugly.

    Ewww... that is horrible. I'd rather have the old downloads page back.

    Is it possible that you can put an icon next to the products to let us know of the pricing?
    Kind of how they do on the Top 75 security tools page. Icon for Linux, BSD, m$ and then a big $$ if the product costs money.

    http://www.insecure.org/tools.html

    Anyway... I haven't used that page since I stared coming here. I don't think I'll start now.
    I'd rather see the community suggest products (like we do now) and then have a place to link them. Not have some company who has the leetest software out there that I absolutely can't live without.

    I bet that if AntiOnline would start hosting 4,000 GB of free pr0n for you guys to download, you would still complain.
    Maybe... depends on the *type* of pr0n you put up there.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Gotta start somewhere. These are the early stages (there are only a handful of progs ATM). And we're not aiming to be a downloader's paradise, just something computer security-related that over time people will find helpful.

    Spyder32, no offense taken. The look is in keeping with the rest of AO, for the most part. A real departure would have had the villagers taking up their torches and pitch forks, no doubt. The servers can't take that kind of abuse

    Tiger Shark, we don't host because of constant updates (version 1.0, 1.0.1, etc.) and some devs require some sort of registration for a trial. The submitters furnish us with the URL. By and large, they are looking for more exposure, especially the smaller guys that are flying under the radar. We're trying to build something that's not too messy for either side.

    We'll see how it goes, take stock and take it from there.
