Clover combines the goodness of Windows Explorer and Google Chrome


  1. I have to admit that I thought the same when I first went to the site…I was going to do my own assessment of the software, but when this developer can’t be bothered to cater to non-chinese speaking individuals…well…pass. Besides this the whole Huwei suspicions recently reported by the NY Times has put a bug in my brain that chirps every now and again when considering the security issues of not only this app, but hardware as well. Sucks that you have to consider that there are those that want your information for any number of reasons out there. Good call Mr DesElms…I couldn’t agree more!

  2. God, what an absolute whinge from somebody who’s not even downloaded the software, let alone installed it! If your computer needs to be rebooted, is laggy and just doesn’t perform, well… guess who’s fault that ISN’T? The developers.

    I’ve installed the program and it works without a hitch. It’s smooth, doesn’t slow me down at all and makes life a hell of a lot easier.

    Here’s some free advice… instead of bitching and moaning about some software you’ve not even tried, how about you start looking internally at your own problems and sort out your pc?

    It’s people like you who made the world a sad and down place. Smile ffs

  3. In my 56 years (as of this writing) on this planet, @Madpaddy31, I’ve observed that people who begin postings with language like “you sir are an idiot” are usually kneejerk reactionaries who are uncareful readers and think they know everything when, in fact, they don’t even know what they don’t even know. Worse, and most insufferably, they castigate others for not seeming to have whatever knowledge they perceive themselves to have, and cannot believe others either don’t have it or can’t see that they do. Of course, it’s about narcissism and profound immaturity; and, sadly, you’re painfully clearly all about both.

    For starters, I never wrote a single thing about my PC running like crap. What I wrote, simply, was that whenever there are too many tabs open in Chrome, my machine, exactly the same as anyone else’s machine, slows. That’s a problem endemic to Chrome, not anyone’s machine… mine, considering how well-tuned it is, least of all. Again with the “uncareful reader” thing. My machine runs quite perfectly, thankyouverymuch. I’ve been in IT for forty years… since before you were even a twinkle in your unfortunate parents’ eyes, I’ll wager. I’ve FORGOTTEN more about IT and security and how to make a machine run flawlessly than I’ll wager you’ll ever know; and unlike you, I’ve got literally decades of experience being actually paid — handsomely, I might add — for it. Perhaps if you’d bothered to research my postings a bit before assuming that I’m a neophyte, you’d realize what a fool of yourself you’d make by a post like the one of yours to which I’m now responding. But, of course, that’s where the “kneejerk reactionary” part comes in; as well as the “profound immaturity” part, too. Thanks for well illustrating it all for us, here.

    The fact that you cannot seem to recognize the potential for harm such as I’ve described in my original posting, here, demonstrates, fruther, that you wouldn’t recognize a potential PC security threat if it walked-up and kissed you square on the mouth. It’s you, and not me, about which that speaks volumes.

    You wrote: “…if your machines security is up to date and working you have nothing to worry about.”

    MY RESPONSE: You wear your profound ignorance — and arrogance, as well — on your sleeve. There is nothing built-in to Windows that would stop the kind of harm that could be performed by an installed app that hooks itself directly into the very bowels of Windows via Explorer. You understand that we’re talking about Windows Explorer, here, and not Internet Explorer, right? You understand that nothing has more security rights to the whole of Windows than Windows (and not Internet) Explorer, right?

    Please try to have at least some small clue what you’re talking about before you deign to make such a fool of yourself.

    And I know all about testing things in virtual spaces like Sandboxie, thankyouvermuch. Again with your arrogance and narcissism of assuming everyone’s stupid but you. That you would prescribe virtualization for everyday use just further evidences your cluelessness.

  4. @Daniel,

    You didn’t post your reply as a reply to me, but, rather, as a fresh post of its own, in reply to the article-in-chief; hence my not having noticed it until now, when I was drawn back to this months-old page to respond to @Madpaddy31…

    …speaking of which response: it occurs to me that pretty much everything you’ve written to me, here, in response to my initial posting (but which you apparently didn’t know how to convey by simply clicking on the “reply” link at the end of it) is covered, by hook or by crook, in what I wrote to him. I therefore refer you to it, and leave to you to cherrypick from it that which applies to you. I won’t hold my breath for you to figure it out, mind you, but I’m just sayin’.
