First of all, there was ONE "less than stellar" review. The Ars review was pretty pathetically trollish, I have no idea why. Check Google if you don't believe it.

I used it in beta testing and its head and shoulders above other remote access tools. Their pricing is out to lunch, but it is an excellent tool.

Second, Parallels always has done stuff like this. The last version or two has been popping up ads. It's lazy of them and stupid but it's not really an "unrelated daemon".

Don't expect their support to give you instructions on how to uninstall it, just run something like CleanMyMac2 and move on.

They killed every other option for syncing feeds/read status because they were free and very good. Now we need to scramble to create new options and get platform support.

Your interface comments are your perspective only. I loved it, it was extremely efficient.
