Wowmatrix was free. Curse sucks.

If it wasnt for Curse or WOWI, there wouldnt be a WoWMatrix. WoWMatrix didnt actually host their own files, nor did authors upload to WoWMatrix. WoWMatrix just crawled around for addon updates (poorly), and then gave you a direct link to the addon hosted on Curse or WOWI.WoWMatrix doesnt provide an facility for reporting bug fixes directly to the addon authors. WoWMatrix was the sham. It grabbed content from other websites, tried to pass it off as its own, but took on none of the responsibility of bandwidth or reliability, all without permission of the sites it was leaching from.If Curse and WOWI were to go off air, no downloads from WoWMatrix would work at all.

WowMatrix is evil. Those that use it suck.

See, Clanklub (and those that up-rated him)? I can make overly generalized statements as well. Of course, mine's a lot closer to completely accurate than yours is..

AFAIK, WoWMatrix hosts any Addon on their servers that the author has allowed or asked them to do so or that is under a free distribution license.This wasn't always the case, but seems to be now. Most addons work with WoWMatrix now, but of course there are some high profile addons that don't.

@ ColerejusteYet you probably use Google - who robs far more bandwidth than WoWMatrix ever did.

@Colerejuste remind me again how wowmatrix is worse than bookmarking the download link for an addon and bypassing the front-end website... oh and having adblockers installed?i won't hold my breath waiting for you to admit there IS NO DIFFERENCE and that this has all been a smokescreen to charge you $30 for an update-all button.
