Remarks about ComicDaily
Though ComicDaily brings about a vast number of comics to your desktop it’s still in alpha stage and therefore you might face some bugs. I personally downloaded the app on Windows 7, and found that the selected comic took enormous time to load. Actually, the comic didn’t load for me even after 10 min, even though I’ve a 2Mbps connection. Also, since it’s a Java based app, it’s a bit resource intensive and has a memory stamp of approx. 83MB. Also users may find the comic list to be limited and hope the developer will add some more comics in the future. ComicDaily is said to run on Windows Vista, 7, XP,Mac and Linux based OS. Java Runtime is a pre-requisite.
