    Finally Google to help stopping confusing download buttons on web site


    Hi there

    sometimes when you are looking for stuff and you reach a site you are presented with a whole confusing array of download buttons, install applications or whatever really hiding the actual download you want - sites like DriverMax come to mind for example/

    Finally Google is going to try and tidy up this lot -- about time too.

    The confusing downloads can often lead to people installing all sorts of unwanted spyware, PUPS, viruses etc etc.
    We should support anybody trying to clear those things up.

    I consider myself as reasonably experienced - but sometimes I've found it incredibly hard to get the actual download I'm after having navigated through endless traps of arrows etc to spurious links.

    Note Torrentfreak is a perfectly 100% legitimate News site so no illegal software being offered. !!!!

    Cheers

    This is good news. It has reached ridiculous levels on even legitimate download sites. I tend to stick to MajorGeeks.com because they test out the software and offer clean, easy to find download links.

    This is definitely good news. I hate going to a download page and wasting my time trying to find the correct download link.
