    I´m getting warnings from the Google search engine, anyone knows what´s going on, is it hacked or something? No problems on my machine though? o_O

    OK so it´s because Softpedia is hosting/linking to spyware, but I see they have already removed these apps. But this does show that the "100 % malware free" awards can not be trusted, not that I ever did. I still think Softpedia is a cool site though, I just wish they would stop listing all these crappy apps, and they should make separate categories for FF and Maxthon plugins.
