As a Mac User, when you're visiting http://afb.users.sourceforge.net/zero-install/interfaces/AddApp.xml and see instructions that start with using something akin to the very interface you're trying to install (AddApp itself), but on Ubuntu, it's very disorienting. Even if there's nothing you can do about that boilerplate, a big bold box that tells Mac users to ignore it would be useful.

Discussion

  • Agreed. The link should probably use the .zip version of the AddApp.app, rather than the .xml version ?
    The interface is rather appalling too, but that's another story. It would be much better with drag-and-drop.
