Ok, so people make fun of me because I'm still using AOL while most have moved on to g.mail, etc. That's ok...I like AOL.
No, I DID like AOL until Gold came along. What crap the desk top Gold is. 1st, I don't like how my history trail doesn't clear itself anymore when I sign off. At least I haven't been able to find a way.
I have to go in and "clear footprints" manually. 2nd, and this is a huge deal, is that it will show I have new e-mails. Go to read them, and there they are listed.....and....POOF! GONE!
In a split second! So I have to use Firefox (or another browser) and go to www.aol.com to find my mail. 3rd, it is slow to load.
The ONLY reason I am staying with AOL is because I use it as my business e-mail. In a few months I am putting my business up for sale and once it sells I will happily say good-bye to AOL Desktop Gold.
