Side-by-side with the Opts dialog discussion, I would like to share and know your opinions also about a FT dialog "revolution".
I haven't seen such thread somewhere, please tell me if I'm wrong :) So what's my opinion? Well... Nullbie has surely made a good code work, yes, it is also nice that he brought something.."new" :) But (this is nothing persnonally against him) when I firstly saw this update on the SVN - I've stayed stuck in a shock. Wow, looks like someone needs to clear his screen from dialogs or what :) I have no idea how many file transfers can some people gain per hour/day/week, but... Generally, FTs over IM networks often fails, and I don't think anyone here is capable to make about 50 FTs per day to say that his screen is really full of dialogs x) I don't say this one is bad, but... From one side, this solution is "complexive", not simple, easier, and TRADITIONAL, what's happed with our "smaller, easier, ..."? x) And on the other side, this solution is too lightened, it misses the information value of the old sulution. That's what poped in my mind in the first moment. What about an OPTIONALITY? I don't use my instant messenger as a Swiss knife (one application for everything) nor as a download manager, so I would never fill in more than 2 items in this "list". Yeah, it looks cool in FireFox when we compare it against IE, but... Web browser is secondarily designed for storing content, right? FTs in IMs is only a deluxe service, I think so. This is why I'm using the old module/solution in my SVN builds, I really don't plan to use it somewhere as a dedicated application for sharing files with people via IM networks :) I'm trying to keeps this old module's code actual, but it won't be possible for an infinite time.
What is your opinion about this turnover?
P.S.: Looks like it's too late now, but... If possible... Bring us the old FT system back x) Or give us some option. It would be welcome :) Thanks
