New Digsby installer loaded with bloat and adverts (Download Squad)

Nov 24th 2008 5:40PM Hey everyone. This is Steve from the Digsby team. We're testing this installer with a small portion of downloads and like others have said, the offers are 100% optional.

Feb 7th 2008 1:37AM @Squishy - I think we are going to get rid of the task bar icon altogether... we have an icon in the tray so it is redundant.
