      It works now! I just wish it worked better.

      I figure I need to write a new review, because the latest version (4.0.8) actually works for me! Great update. Now, the app itself: there's a lot of data here, but it's not the easiest to use. For example, at the bottom of the "Extensions" tab, there's a round search box, like you'd normally find at the top of a window. Typing in there searches the list of extensions, but it's pretty slow. There's also a (misaligned) "Search" button next to this, and when I click it, it switches to my web browser and seems to open a new tab for each extension shown in the list (in my case, about 100). Yikes! I did not expect that. This is not an isolated case: I found myself saying "I did not expect that" a lot. The screenshots show OS X 10.6, and that's probably what it was tested against. Not everything looks so great on 10.7+. For example, you can only see 2 pixels width of the scrollbars on the "Extensions" tab. Nothing is completely broken, but it does seem somewhat unfinished. If you can figure out how to use it, there's a fantastic amount of data in here. Unfortunately, it's not very intuitive, and the documentation is almost nonexistant.

      Cannot uninstall or remove this software

      This software was installed my accident on my PC, and is now impossible to remove. Every time I drag this app from the Applications folder to the Trash and empty the Trash, it replaces itself with another copy. It also always needs to update. I have installed version 4.25 at least 30 times now. Every time I turn on my computer, I get a push notification from the App Store stating that the “update installed successfully”, even after I have removed this app from my PC. The developers have not responded to my emails asking for further assistence to remove this application, so the only conclusion I can come to is that this app is a piece of malware that cannot ever be uninstalled. 0/10 - would not recommend.

      Love This App

      I freakin love this application because it constantly reminds me of how lazy Microsoft is at releasing updated drivers for OpenGL. I mean common they fully support 3.1 and 3.2 but since the 3.0 shader is not implemented everyone is still stuck on OpenGL 2.1… Lousy.

      Invaluable for OpenGL Developers

      We've been using this application for at least 6 years. It's not something that you use every day, but when you need it: saves the day.

      Great Graphics Testing Tool

      It's pretty fun to play around with. Recommended for gamers who want to see exactly what sort of graphics their Windows can push.
