CleanSofts' Update Notifier (UDN)
 
Use this thread to discuss CleanSofts' Update Notifier (UDN) mentioned in the Best Free Software Update Monitor article.

I have an update on the matter of the poor rating given to CleanSofts.org first mentioned by an anonymous reader in the comments of the Best Free Software Update Monitor article on 22 January 2009. This has changed to a clean bill of health. Web of Trust gives the CleanSofts site a light green rating, which means it has a good reputation (on the other hand, FileHippo gets a dark green rating, i.e. an excellent reputation).

In a recent article by Mark Joseph Edwards in the Windows Secrets newsletter, he notes how slow Site Advisor is to update their database, bringing into question the accuracy of their ratings.

Update: There is further clarification on Site Advisor's update policy here.

And what do you think about Web of Trust ? How often do they update their information ?
I can't see any difference on Web of Trust between cleansofts.org and filehippo.com (they have the same green level color).

I am not qualified to make a comment on this. I only reported what has been mentioned in the WindowsSecrets newsletters and what my results were from a quick comparison at the time.

At the time I wrote the comment there was a clear distinction. I just checked again and they do now get the same ratings from Site Advisor and WOT.
