I strongly agree with the interface recommendations! Melih and COMODO, please consider offering two GUI’s: one for Windows 8/touch screens (ie the current CIS version 6 GUI) and another one for pre-Windows 8 computers/point-n-click (ie CIS version 5.10 GUI).
I suspect COMODO made these GUI changes to accommodate people moving to Windows 8 and touch screen interfaces. However, given the HUGE controversy/disagreement over the new Windows 8 METRO interface, I urge COMODO to reconsider their GUI decision with version 6. Please offer users a choice between the new, dumb-downed GUI or the more conventional and informational GUI from version 5.10.
I hope they will change it or else they might lose a lot of user like myself… Also, Melih always brag about Comodo listening to their users so why they wouldn’t change it if the users asked and want a summary page like in version 5.12???
Well most of us don’t want to use stupid widget for the job that should be done by the main interface which is for some idiotic reason almost completelly empty and they crammed everything into widget or they dig it up inside settings for no logical reason.
Actually you don’t need 2 interfaces as that would just complicate things further. But having at least few more info or quicker access to certain features on the main menu would certainly help.
Direct access to D+, FW and File Reputation settings from the main interface would help a lot. Because even if you set Advanced Settings to the taskbar in the CIS interface, you still have to make another 2 or 3 clicks to get to the desired specific setting of each component. And thats 2 or 3 clicks too many.
There is a fine line of making simple interface and interface thats oversimplified. And i’m sorry to say but Comodo team crossed that line and oversimplified the interface. They sacrificed a lot of functionality to make it virtually easier to use but in reality, it’s actually harder to use because you have to constantly dig through several layers of settings to make simple things like view internet bandwidth used by specific app or view unrecognized files list. And thats just fail by design.
The question is, why do we even need stupid touch interface? For tablets that use iOS, Android or Windows RT which will not support Comodo anyway? I just don’t get their logic. If they’d be following that, then why the hell i don’t have mouse and keyboard support in Android version of Comodo!?
I agree with you. And the funniest part is that when you are on the tablet side of windows 8 ie what was known as Metro and can no more be called Metro, not only you can’t manage your security software from there but you won’t even see its alerts! To do that, you have to be on the desktop side and you know what…the vast majority of ppl will use keyboard and mouse when in desktop.
