    1. The external editor feature is a nice feature included in most modern FTP applications.

    see http://www.merzwaren.com/external_editor.html

    Fetch 4 apparently includes this feature, yet it is limited only to BBEdit. I do not wish to use BBEdit as my external editor, thus, i will not be using Fetch 4 until it implments the External Editor protocol for my chosen text editor.

    2. Having to turn on cookies just to download the beta sucks.

    3. I hate installers that put the app at the root level of my hard drive. Please ask me where i want to put it.

    I would like to support other external editors, but I haven't figured out the user interface. If nothing else it should be possible to change the editor in 4.0 with an AppleScript.

    I agree that it should be possible to download without cookies; I will make sure this is possible for 4.0.

    I never install to the root folder of my hard drive either. You can choose a folder by clicking the volume pop-up menu; it isn't obvious, and you have to remember to do it, but it works. You might send your feedback about this to MindVision, which makes Installer VISE.

    Thanks for the feedback!
