      I would really like to get the opinions of former FTP diehards why the client software is better than Stars. I used to have an account in FTP and I did like the software, but I seem to read often how FTP players think other rooms' clients are crap.

      Aside from the customizable lobby widgets, what else makes the FTP client better? Thanks!

      Hi,

      The soft is smooth, fast, aesthetically very elaborate, easily readable, very good in multitabling, sounds are not bothering and are well balanced, lobby very clear and usefully customisable, evolves very fast and in the good direction. That's all I got right now.
      I tried many other rooms, not ONE comes even close to this soft imho.

      best hand history tool, easy to find hands from different tables, even if they where played lots of of hands ago.
      easy and smooth replay of the hand fast clicking fwd buttons, stars sucks here.
      if you roll over any open FT window – it is active automatically, not like in other rooms you need to click on that window to make it active.
      and software feels like real software, not like stars, that makes me feel like I'm using some kind of cheap flash or web app with stupid fonts :-)
      though I begin to like pokerstars... :-)

      why do you ask? It's renowed for its software.
      So simple and so classy.

      I don't i have the delay between the my clicks and the site actions which gets me to time out a ton compared to stars, it's true it's a much faster then stars but that's because, and this is my assumption not a proven fact, i guess they are using a mirror of your real $ account when you log in and don't make changes on the database as often as PS you can notice that because Cashier updates real time and you can't tell me they make a query every 1s for all 75k or 125k users that are logged on at the same time.

      - You can always know when you just opened a table who is the player acting and how much time he has left to act (color bar under the player instead of icon blinking on stars)

      - Filters work as they should work especially for tourneys / sngs (you can select only 1 buy-in type (e.g. 0.25$) while in other poker rooms I've played you can select a range ( < 1$, which may include for example 0.10, 0.25, 0.55).

      - Everything updates realtime (FTPs in cashier/widget while sitting at a cash table after every hand, FTPs while bonus window opened and a hand just finished, hands finished in hands history while hand history windows is opened, ...). At stars while playing cash games you can only see FPPs accumulated at a table only after leaving the table or loosing a buy-in

      - Avatars make a simplified and easy to read interface

      - Final table of any multitable Tourney / SNG (I know they could brush a little bit the graphics of it but the idea of showing you just reached the final table seems nice)

      + many of the statements above
