have not tried free weather
I personally have not tried Free Weather. Right now im using Weather Pulse its small in size so not a resource hog and no adware. It can/does link to Weather.com for a few options and I have noticed no difference in it slowing me down. Back when I did have Weather.com installed the only time I had to wait briefly was to watch the "weather in motion" feature but as soon as I changed pages all was normal. I was also on dial up back then!
No problem continuing this thread I opened it looking for all the input I could get. Im not a weather buff but I do live in the north east where the weather can change rapidly and I work outside, so weather does affect my daily quality of life somewhat. Im not a big fan of tv so prefer to get my info online.
Thanks for your input!
