      Ghacks has a new owner

      Softonic’s privacy policy now applies.

      Not great news for me, at least, as Ghacks has been one of my main sources of reliable information in recent years — while I have been weary of using Softonic downloads for about just as long.

      It was for me too. Martin does promise that Ghacks will remain independent of Softonic with free to publish as usual. I hope it remains so.
